Hurricanes' Sekera Fully Healed From Injury

News: Andrej Sekera said Wednesday that he's fully recovered from his April abdominal surgery, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Despite missing eight games due to injury, Andrej Sekera turned in the best season of his career in his first campaign in Carolina, netting 11 goals and 33 assists to go along with a plus-4 rating. Though he'll seemingly enter 2014-15 with his health intact, Sekera's modest offensive output during his prior six seasons in Buffalo should give fantasy players pause in paying for last season's numbers. It's probably within his abilities to make another run at 40 points, but there's an equally good chance he played over his head last season based on what his larger career sample size would suggest. He'll open the year on the Canes' top pairing alongside Justin Faulk.

Canes' Sekera Out Six Weeks

News: Andrej Sekera recently underwent abdominal surgery, from which he's expected to recover in approximately six weeks, the Canes' official website reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera's season will end a bit early, but he still had a great year, and should have plenty of time to get healthy before 2014-15. He wraps up the career-best season with 11 goals, 33 assists, 127 blocked shots, 54 hits, and a plus-four rating in 74 games. Fifteen of his 44 points, including four goals, came on the man advantage.

Canes' Sekera Out Again Thursday

News: Andrej Sekera (lower body) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Capitals.
Analysis: The blueliner will miss his fourth straight game with the injury and at this point, it wouldn't be surprising if he missed the final two games of the season, either. The lower-body ailment won't tarnish what has been a career season for Andrej Sekera, who has totaled 11 goals and 33 assists in 74 games.

Canes' Sekera Out For Tuesday

News: Andrej Sekera (lower body) will not play Tuesday against the Rangers, Mike Maniscalco of WRAL The Fan reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera, who's broken out for 11 goals and 33 assists in 74 games this season, will miss his third straight game Tuesday when the 'Canes head to Madison Square Garden. He could return Thursday for the team's last home game of the year against the Capitals.

Canes' Sekera Out Saturday

News: Andrej Sekera (lower body) will not play Saturday against the Devils, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.
Analysis: A lower-body injury has interrupted Andrej Sekera's career year, as he's set to sit Saturday for a second straight game. His status for Tuesday's matchup against the Rangers is uncertain, but if he can't make it, the team could opt for an IR stint.

Andrej Sekera

Canes' Sekera Out Thursday

News: Andrej Sekera missed Thursday's game because of a lower-body injury, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera has frequently logged upwards of 25 minutes on the ice in recent weeks, but the Canes didn't have any problem replacing him in a 4-1 win over the Stars on Thursday. The story will likely be different -- both for the team and fantasy owners -- if Sekera misses time beyond Thursday.

Canes' Sekera: Career Year Continues

News: Andrej Sekera's career year continued Saturday when he picked up two more assists in a win over Winnipeg. He has eight assists in his last 10 games and 44 points, including 11 goals, in 69 games this season.
Analysis: His previous best ever tally was 29 points and that was back in 2010-11. And he's on track right now to crest the 50-point plateau. Yes, the 50-point plateau. Go figure. Use him well.

Points Rolling In For Canes' Sekera

News: Andrej Sekera grabbed an assist for the third consecutive game in Thursday's 4-2 win over Buffalo, giving him 41 points on the season.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera remains one of the league's breakout stars on the blue line and has done most of his scoring this season at even strength. We saw a flash of this several seasons ago in Buffalo, but that didn't really work out; now, Sekera is enjoying life in Raleigh.

Sekera Streaking For Hurricanes

News: Andrej Sekera tallied two assists and went plus-3 in Tuesday's overtime victory in San Jose.
Analysis: He assisted on the game-tying and game-winning tallies, pushing his point streak to five games, dating back to before the Olympics. With 11 goals and 38 points for the season, Andrej Sekera continues to prove his doubters wrong.

Carolina's Sekera Still Delivering

News: Andrej Sekera scored his ninth goal of the season in Friday's win over Florida. The tally came on the power play and he put six shots on goal in the win.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera is still delivering consistent offensive production for The Hurricanes with every point further establishing a new career best. He sits with 32 points through 54 games and has been quite consistent this season. Those in Olympic pools will want to look toward Sekera as he figures to see many scoring chances for his native Slovakia.

Hurricanes' Sekera Tallies Two Assists

News: Andrej Sekera tallied two assists in Saturday's win over the Senators.
Analysis: With a goal and five assists over his last three games, it doesn't appear as though Andrej Sekera's breakthrough season is losing any steam. His 30 points have already surpassed his previous career high of 29 set with the Sabres in 2010-11, requiring 27 fewer games to do so.

Canes' Sekera Notches Three-Point Game

News: Andrej Sekera had one goal and two assists in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Sabres.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera's second assist came on an empty-netter, but fantasy owners will take it all the same. His goal put the Canes ahead 4-3 in the third period and would ultimately stand as the game-winner. Sekera has four points in his last two games, after suffering through a six-game point drought in mid-January.

Sekera Strong In Carolina Win

News: Andrej Sekera assisted on two of Carolina's goals in Tuesday's win over Montreal, also putting seven shots on goal.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera's career season continues in Raleigh and he has four points in the last three games with 17 shots on goal in the last four. He's been a tremendous value for owners that snagged him on waivers or late in their drafts.

Sekera Grabs Assist In Carolina Loss

News: Andrej Sekera assisted on a power-play goal in Carolina's loss to Washington Friday.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera continues to be a quietly productive player on a maddeningly inconsistent team. He has not gone more than two games without a point since early November; his 19 points have him on pace to fly by the career high of 29 he notched three seasons ago in Buffalo.

Andrej Sekera, D, CAR Productivity Continues For Carolina's Sekera

Andrej Sekera

Productivity Continues For Carolina's Sekera

News: Andrej Sekera grabbed a pair of assists and was plus-1 in Tuesday's overtime loss to Edmonton.
Analysis: The heretofore unexciting 27-year-old defenseman has been red-hot over his last nine games, collecting three goals and seven assists in that span. It's hard to expect him to maintain any such rate, but he's seeing major minutes for the 'Canes and looks like he could quite reasonably make a run at 40 points. His career high is just 29.

Andrej Sekera

Canes' Sekera Probable For Tuesday

News: Andrej Sekera (upper body) is considered probable for Tuesday's game against the Capitals, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Coach Kirk Muller will see how Andrej Sekera feels in warmups just to be on the safe side before declaring him active Tuesday. Sekera demonstrated that he was healthy during Monday's full practice and looks to be in good shape after missing the last two games with the injury.

12/2/2013

Andrej Sekera, D, CAR

Andrej Sekera

Canes' Sekera Returns To Practice

News: Andrej Sekera (upper body) returned to practice Monday and could return for Tuesday's game against the Capitals, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera has missed two games with the upper-body injury, but appears close to a return on defense. Check on his status before the game Tuesday, but it appears he may be able to take the ice for the Hurricanes.

Andrej Sekera

Canes' Sekera Doubtful For Sunday

News: Andrej Sekera (upper body) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Canucks, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: As expected, Andrej Sekera will miss Sunday's contest after he wasn't cleared to skate Saturday morning. The Hurricanes haven't passed along any information regarding the MRI he received Friday, but for the time being, it doesn't seem as though it was troubling enough to result in an IR stint for the defenseman.

Canes' Sekera Out Friday With Injury

News: Andrej Sekera is dealing with an upper-body injury and will not play Friday vs. the Devils, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Coach Kirk Muller said Andrej Sekera will receive an MRI later on Friday in order to gain further clarification on his injury. It would seem likely that he'd miss Sunday's game vs. the Canucks as well, but the Hurricanes appear content to take the wait-and-see approach for now. Mike Komisarek enters the lineup in Sekera's stead.

Canes' Sekera Adds Two Assists Wednesday

News: Andrej Sekera notched two assists Wednesday against the Devils.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera now has five points in his last four games, and 13 on the season. Although neither of his points came on the power play Wednesday night, he has been getting some time on the man advantage, and has two goals there on the season.

Canes' Sekera Notches Another Goal

News: Andrej Sekera found the net Saturday against the Bruins for his third goal in the last two games.
Analysis: After a two-goal outburst Thursday vs. the Red Wings, Andrej Sekera stayed hot right away Saturday, connecting on a first-period power-play score to give the Hurricanes a 1-0 lead. He ended up finishing the game with a team-high three hits while logging nearly 25 minutes of ice time. Keep him in your lineups while he continues to sizzle.

Canes' Sekera Ends Scoring Drought

News: Andrej Sekera notched an assist in Friday's shootout win over Anaheim, his first point in five games.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera was a trendy pickup a few weeks ago, but he was a little quiet over the last two weeks with just an assist on Friday. Sekera should see scoring chances for Carolina and can be a solid option in deeper leagues; just be prepared for stretches of inconsistency.

Andrej Sekera

Canes' Sekera Has Two Points In Loss

News: Andrej Sekera scored his first goal of the season and added an assist during Carolina's loss to the Avalanche on Friday.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera was just recently moved up to the top defense pairing and has responded nicely with three points and a plus-2 rating over his last three games. With the heavy ice time he is logging (23:36 per game), including on the power play, he is starting to look like a real solid option moving forward.

Canes' Sekera Enjoying Top-Line Minutes

News: Andrej Sekera has been promoted to the Canes' top defensive pairing alongside Justin Faulk, the Raleigh News & Observer reports. "They're in sync," coach Kirk Muller said of Sekera and Faulk. "As a pair they've been very effective."
Analysis: Andrej Sekera, whose career-high points total (29) came three seasons ago in Buffalo, has just three points through eight games so far this year. However, his average ice time per game (23:15) is the highest it's ever been, and he's also seeing second-line duty on the power play. He makes for a decent acquisition in deeper fantasy formats.

Andrej Sekera

Sekera Steady For Carolina

News: Andrej Sekera assisted on Carolina's only goal in Friday's shootout loss to the Kings, giving him three assists on the season in five games.
Analysis: More specifically, Andrej Sekera has three points in the last two games and saw 24:34 of ice time in Friday's loss, with 4:00 coming on the power play. He'd been rumored to have an offensive edge to his game while breaking into the league with Buffalo and could be showing that promise now with Carolina. Eye him up in deeper leagues as a potential sleeper, as the Canes don't have many puck-movers to pass to their elite group of forwards.
