Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Increasing workload
Andersen (illness) was in the starter's crease Monday in order to take more shots but is still without a clear recovery timeline, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Andersen continues to increase his work in the hope of getting back into the crease this season. With Antti Raanta (lower body) also unavailable, the team will turn to Spencer Martin against the Blackhawks on Monday. Once given the green light, Andersen should get the chance to reestablish himself as the No. 1 option in Carolina.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Ready for limited on-ice activities
Andersen, who hasn't played since Nov. 2 because of a blood clotting issue, has been cleared to begin limited on-ice activities, the team announced Wednesday.
There is no timetable for Andersen's return, but Carolina plans to offer more updates as the goaltender makes further progress. He has a 4-1-0 record, 2.87 GAA and .894 save percentage in six contests this season. The Hurricanes have been leaning heavily on Antti Raanta recently, but the 34-year-old netminder has left plenty to be desired with his 3.04 GAA and .870 save percentage across 23 games in 2023-24. When Andersen is back, he will likely compete with Raanta for starts, though Pyotr Kochetkov, who was loaned to AHL Chicago on Sunday, could rejoin the team after the All-Star break and might also remain in the mix....

Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Will start skating soon
Andersen (illness) is still a month from returning to action but is expected to start skating soon. General manager Don Waddell told reporters Sunday, "Over the next week or 10 days, he'll start hitting the ice more," Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Andersen shouldn't be expected back until mid-to-late January but the fact that he is ready to start skating is certainly a step in the right direction. Until the veteran backstop is cleared to play, the Hurricanes figure to continue utilizing Pyotr Kochetkov as the primary option between the pipes. Having said that, Carolina added Aaron Dell on a professional tryout after having placed Antti Raanta on waivers over the weekend.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Out indefinitely
Carolina announced Monday that Andersen will be out of action indefinitely after it was discovered that he has a blood clotting issue.

Andersen, who was moved to injured reserve Monday, has posted a 4-1-0 record with a 2.87 GAA and an .894 save percentage in six appearances this season. At this time, Antti Raanta is projected to be the No. 1 netminder for the Hurricanes. Jaroslav Halak, who is with Carolina on a tryout basis, may get a chance to fill in as well during Andersen's absence. Pyotr Kochetkov could also be in the mix for playing time between the pipes....

Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Undergoing evaluations
Andersen (undisclosed) is undergoing evaluations for a medical issue.
In six appearances this season, Andersen has a 4-1-0 record with a 2.87 GAA and an .894 save percentage. The Hurricanes will provide an update on his status once one becomes available. If Andersen ends up missing time, Antti Raanta will probably move up to the No. 1 goalie spot. Carolina also announced Monday that Jaroslav Halak will join the team as a free agent tryout, which suggests that Pyotr Kochetkov could be staying in the minors.... See More ... See Less

Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Wins in return from injury
Andersen made 24 saves in a 3-2 overtime win over the Kraken on Thursday.
Andersen had missed the last three games after taking a puck to the mask in a win at San Jose on Oct. 17. He was exactly what the Hurricanes needed to snap a three-game losing streak. The net belongs to Andersen as long as he's healthy, but he won't have a heavy workload -- he gets injured far too much. But while he's in the blue paint, Andersen should be in your lineup, too....

Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Set for backup duty
Andersen (upper body) will back up Pyotr Kochetkov in Tuesday's game versus the Lightning, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Andersen isn't yet ready to start a game, but he's moved past his injury enough to dress as the backup. The 34-year-old netminder missed two contests with the injury. The Hurricanes' goaltending has been abysmal thus far, so any member of the trio of Andersen, Kochetkov and Antti Raanta could carve out a larger role with a stretch of good performances....

Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Leaves start in first period
Andersen left Tuesday's game versus the Sharks for precautionary reasons after taking a shot to the mask.
The Hurricanes didn't specify the nature of the injury, but it's safe to assume it's an upper-body issue for the goalie. Andersen stopped one of two shots prior to his exit. Antti Raanta took over in goal and would likely assume the starter role if Andersen misses any additional time beyond Tuesday.... See More ... See Less

Despite the late fade, he ended up stopping seven of nine shootout attempts to secure his second in as many starts this season. Andersen has allowed eight goals on 60 shots to begin 2023-24. He'll likely rotate regularly with Antti Raanta, as the Hurricanes are expected to use a tandem to keep both goalies fresh. Carolina plays again Sunday at Anaheim.... See More ... See Less

The 34-year-old Andersen went 21-11-1 last year with a .903 save percentage and a 2.48 GAA. He'll likely split starting duties with Antti Raanta to open the 2023-24 campaign.... See More ... See Less
