Jesperi Kotkaniemi could be ruled out tonight against the Canadian

Jesperi Kotkaniemi is having a very tough season in Carolina. After scoring 10 points in 10 games in October, his performance slowed down significantly, as he scored 25 points in 74 games during the current season.

If we do the math, we've got 15 points in the last 64 games. That's not exactly the return you'd want from a player making $4.82 million per year through 2030.

In addition to the points, his playing time has also been declining since the start of the season. In fact, since the beginning of February, he has only averaged about ten minutes on the ice per game, and we see him on the fourth line.

However, as the Hurricanes face CH this evening, there is a world in it K He won't even be in training, whose place seems no longer guaranteed.

Yesterday, we saw him rotate on the fourth line with Stefan Nooysen, Jack Drury and Jesper Fast. It would therefore be necessary to remove one of these players given this Top 9 concrete.

Our colleagues at HabsEtLNH also informed you of the news.

So far this season, Kotkaniemi has played in every match for his team. You would think a game against his old club might give him some juice, but on the other hand, leaving him out in a game he might want to play would be a strong message from Rod Brind. love.

The Hurricanes no longer have time to experiment: if they don't perform well, they will fail, plain and simple.

Jake Guentzel and Evgeny Kuznetsov arrive (Who produce offensively) at the trade deadline caused congestion on offense, and Kotkaniemi's 10 minutes per game were no longer strictly necessary in the lineup.
