Andrei Svechnikov

Facing elimination, the Hurricanes need Andrei Svechnikov to grow up — and fast

Under different circumstances, Rod Brind’Amour probably should have benched Andrei Svechnikov in Saturday’s third period. Svechnikov’s two selfish penalties — he also took one earlier to deny a potential goal — helped open the floodgates as the Carolina Hurricanes saw a two-goal lead disappear in a blink. But it’s a...

Hurricanes' Andrei Svechnikov: Fills empty net

Svechnikov scored an empty-net goal on eight shots and added five hits in Monday's 5-2 win over the Predators in Game 1. Svechnikov led all skaters with eight shots, and he was able to cash in his last one for an insurance tally. The Russian winger managed 42 points in 55 regular-season games, but he's off to a good start in the playoffs. While he started Game 1 on the third line, Svechnikov is likely going to see top-six duties and plenty of power-play time -- he had 17 points with the man advantage in the regular season.

On ice: Extension talks cool between Andrei Svechnikov, Hurricanes

Over the offseason, Hurricanes GM Don Waddell had indicated that one of his priorities was to get winger Andrei Svechnikov signed to a contract extension. The pending restricted free agent is now in the final year of his entry-level contract and has been a big part of Carolina’s success over the past couple of seasons. However, he’s in a bit of a slump as of late with just one goal — an empty-netter — over the last 11 games. As his on-ice play has slowed down, so too have his contract talks, reports Luke DeCock of the Raleigh News and Observer.

Caniac Classroom: The “Works” of Andrei Svechnikov

For today’s Caniac Class, we will be examining art; however, this won’t be a typical art history course.

No one has ever risked more to stay onside than Andrei Svechnikov did on Sunday

Hockey players are tough. It’s the oldest cliche in the book because it’s true. Bicuspids are a luxury and ligaments optional.

Viewer discretion is advised.
