  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Blanks Cats for third shutout

    Kochetkov stopped 44 shots in Thursday's 1-0 win over the Panthers.

    The 24-year-old netminder put on a dazzling display between the pipes in a goaltending duel with Sergei Bobrovsky, and Kochetkov got rewarded for his efforts when Sebastian Aho scored with just 19 seconds left in the third period. It's Kochetkov's second shutout in his last four starts and his third of the season, and since rejoining Carolina after the All-Star break, he's gone 4-2-0 with a 1.60 GAA and .946 save percentage.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Making home start

    Kochetkov will defend the blue paint during Thursday's home game versus Florida, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Kochetkov was excellent in his last appearance Friday against Arizona, stopping 30 of 31 shots en route to a 5-1 road victory. He'll try to pick up a second straight win in a brutal home matchup with a scorching-hot Panthers team that's won nine of its last 10 games and six straight.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Makes 30 saves in win

    Kochetkov stopped 30 of 31 shots in Friday's 5-1 win over the Coyotes.

    Kochetkov had little trouble collecting the win Friday, as the Hurricanes gave him all the support he needed in the opening five minutes. He's played in all five games since the All-Star break, allowing nine goals while going 3-2-0 with a shutout in that span. The 24-year-old is up to 14-9-3 with a 2.46 GAA and a .905 save percentage through 28 appearances this season. It's unclear if Kochetkov will start back-to-back days or if Spencer Martin will get the nod in Vegas on Saturday.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Guarding cage Friday

    Kochetkov will be stationed between the pipes in Arizona on Friday.

    Kochetkov coughed up three goals on just 22 shots in Tuesday's loss to Dallas. The 24-year-old has gone 2-2-0 while allowing eight goals over his last four appearances. On the year, he owns a .902 save percentage and a 2.52 GAA through 27 games.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Stumbles in Dallas

    Kochetkov allowed three goals on 22 shots in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Stars.

    It was a tough outing for Kochetkov, who was coming off wins in his previous two starts, including a 34-save shutout versus the Devils in his last game Saturday. The 24-year-old netminder falls to 13-9-3 with a .902 save percentage and a 2.52 GAA on the season. Kochetkov should continue to see the majority of starting chances in Carolina while Antti Raanta (lower body) and Frederik Andersen (illness) are both sidelined. The Hurricanes are back in action Friday on the road versus Arizona.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: First off Tuesday

    Kochetkov was the first goaltender off the ice at the morning skate, according to Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site, indicating he will defend the road goal Tuesday versus Dallas.

    Kochetkov has won his past two outings, including a 34-save shutout victory over New Jersey on Saturday. In 26 appearances this season, he has provided a 13-8-3 record with a 2.50 GAA and a .903 save percentage. The Stars sit third in the league this campaign with 3.65 goals per contest.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Makes 34 saves in shutout

    Kochetkov recorded a 34-save shutout in Saturday's 1-0 overtime win over the Devils.

    Since being recalled from the AHL on Feb 4, Kochetkov has started three straight games, and the Hurricanes were rewarded with this decision. Participating in a classic goaltending battle with Vitek Vanecek, Kochetkov turned aside all 34 shots fired at him, including eight on the power play and two in overtime. The most impressive saves were first on a Nico Hischier power-play chance when he was in front all alone and then in overtime on a Tyler Toffoli breakaway that he calmly kicked into the corner. With this effort, Kochetkov is looking to convince the big club to keep him on board for the remainder of the season.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Expected to start Saturday

    Kochetkov was the first goaltender off the ice at morning skate, indicating he will get the home start versus New Jersey on Saturday, according to Devils play-by-play announcer Matt Loughlin.

    Kochetkov had a surprisingly easy game Thursday, as he needed to stop only 16 shots in a 5-2 win over Colorado. Kochetkov is 12-8-3 with a 2.61 GAA and an .898 save percentage this season. He should have his hands full versus the Devils, who are tied for 10th in scoring with 169 goals.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Picks up win after getting hook

    Kochetkov stopped 16 of 18 shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Avalanche.

    The 24-year-old netminder made his second straight start following his return from a concussion, but after Kochetkov gave up two goals in five seconds right before the first intermission, coach Rob Brind'Amour elected to turn to Antti Raanta to begin the second period. Raanta suffered a lower-body injury and wasn't able to return for the final frame, however, putting Kochetkov back between the pipes. To his credit he did play better upon his return, turning aside all 10 shots he saw in the final 20 minutes. Kochetkov was already the Hurricanes' first choice in net, but if Raanta's injury proves to be serious, he could be poised for a very heavy workload.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Tending twine Thursday

    Kochetkov will defend the cage at home versus the Avalanche on Thursday, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Kochetkov will look to bounce back after stopping just 16 of 19 shots in a 3-2 loss to Vancouver on Tuesday, which was his first start since being recalled from the minors Sunday. If he continues to struggle, the netminder could find himself watching Antti Raanta from the bench, or even back in the AHL if Frederik Andersen is cleared to return this season.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Falls to Canucks in return

    Kochetkov turned aside 16 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Vancouver.

    Out since Jan. 11 due to a concussion, Kochetkov wasn't too busy in his return but also had little chance on any of the pucks that beat him -- two were tipped home by Elias Lindholm on power plays, while J.T. Miller's game-winner was set up when the puck took a bad bounce off a stanchion behind the Carolina net and caught the goalie out of position. Kochetkov had been looking good prior to getting hurt, and since the beginning of December he sports a 2.41 GAA and .909 save percentage over 15 outings with an 8-4-2 record. Antti Raanta also looked much improved in January (2.06 GAA and .903 save percentage in eight appearances), and the duo could operate in a timeshare until Kochetkov shows he's fully shaken off any rust.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Guarding crease Tuesday

    Kochetkov will protect the home net Tuesday versus Vancouver, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Kochetkov had a 7-1-2 record with a .931 save percentage in 10 outings prior to suffering a concussion against Anaheim on Jan. 11. In 23 NHL appearances this season, he has provided a mark of 11-7-3 with one shutout, a 2.58 GAA and a .900 save percentage. The Canucks sit first in the league this campaign with 3.80 goals per contest.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Recalled from AHL

    Kochetkov was recalled from AHL Chicago on Sunday.

    As expected, Kochetkov will rejoin the Hurricanes prior to their next game Tuesday against Vancouver. The 24-year-old netminder is 11-7-3 with a .900 save percentage and 2.58 GAA. Kochetkov should continue to hold down the starting job in Carolina with Antti Raanta struggling and Frederik Andersen (illness) still without a timetable for return.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Sent to AHL

    Kochetkov was loaned to AHL Chicago on Sunday.

    With the Hurricanes out of action through the All-Star break, Kochetkov will look to stay fresh in the AHL, as he hasn't played since suffering a concussion Jan. 11. The 24-year-old netminder has recovered and figures to be back in Carolina before the team's next game, Feb. 6 against Vancouver. Kochetkov is 11-7-3 with a .900 save percentage and 2.58 GAA this season.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Returns from IR

    Kochetkov (concussion) was removed from injured reserve Friday, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Kochetkov has missed the last six games but will be available Saturday against Arizona, though it's unclear if he'll start or not. The 24-year-old is 11-7-3 with a 2.58 GAA and a .900 save percentage through 23 appearances this season. Over his last five appearances, he's 4-0-0 with a 2.19 GAA.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Making progress in recovery

    Kochetkov (concussion) stayed on the ice for the entirety of Tuesday's practice, but he still has at least one more test to clear in the league's concussion protocol, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    There's still no concrete timetable for Kochetkov's return, but it sounds like he could be given the green light sooner rather than later as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. The 24-year-old goaltender has gone 11-7-3 while posting a 2.58 GAA and a .900 save percentage through 23 appearances this year.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Placed on injured reserve

    Kochetkov (concussion) was put on injured reserve Friday, per Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site.

    The Hurricanes claimed Spencer Martin off waivers from Columbus earlier in the day and they needed to clear a roster spot for the netminder. For his part, Kochetkov is eligible to return at any time as he has been out of action since Jan. 11, when he was injured after giving up three goals on 13 shots versus Anaheim. Kochetkov was 11-7-3 with a 2.58 GAA and a .900 save percentage before his injury.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Out indefinitely

    Per Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer, Kochetkov is in concussion protocol and is out indefinitely, coach Rod Brind'Amour said Friday.

    Kochetkov was injured in the second period versus Anaheim on Thursday. The netminder gave up three goals on 13 shots and was not involved in the decision as the Hurricanes defeated the Ducks 6-3. Kochetkov is 11-7-3 with a 2.58 GAA and a .900 save percentage this season. Antti Raanta is expected to take over the No. 1 goaltending duties for Carolina, with Yaniv Perets as his backup in the short term.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Injured in second period

    Kochetkov (upper body) exited Thursday's game versus the Ducks in the second period, Luke DeCock of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Kochetkov was run into after making a save, and there was head contact. Antti Raanta entered the game in relief and would likely take over the starting role if Kochetkov is forced to miss any time beyond Thursday. Prior to the injury, Kochetkov allowed three goals on 13 shots.
