Hurricanes down Blue Jackets to win third straight

Rotowire: Jan 7 / 9:34a ET
News: Boychuk was placed on waivers Wednesday.
Impact: Boychuk's removal from the roster seemingly suggests that either Alexander Semin or Andrej Nestrasil is now healthy enough to claim a regular spot in the Carolina lineup. With just six points in 31 games this season, Boychuk isn't likely to garner much interest elsewhere.

News: Boychuk will dress Wednesday against the Penguins, NHL.com's Michael Smith reports.
Impact: Boychuk will provide offensive depth for the Canes, as Jordan Staal (leg) will sit this one out.
Rotowire: Dec 9 / 10:35a ET
News: Boychuk was a healthy scratch for Monday's 2-1 loss to the Devils. He sat in favor of Chris Terry, who was recalled from AHL Charlotte earlier in the day following a conditioning stint.
Impact: The writing was on the wall for Boychuk, who skated a season-low 4:49 against the Red Wings on Sunday. Boychuk has not registered a point since scoring a goal Nov. 10 against the Flames, and has just five points in 21 games on the season. He should not be on most fantasy rosters right now.
