    News

    Vatanen (leg) will be ready to suit up for the Hurricanes once the league kicks off the 2020 postseason, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Impact

    Vatanen was dealing with his leg injury when he was acquired by Carolina at the trade deadline and has yet to make an appearance for the club this season. While he won't get a regular-season contest in, the Finnish defenseman figures to be a key part of the club's play-in series versus the Rangers. With Vatanen good to go, Haydn Fleury and Trevor van Riemsdyk figure to find themselves relegated to the press box.
