Hanifin now has seven goals and 12 assists on the season. Hanifin scored on the power play en route to his second multipoint game of the season. The third-year blueliner is already within one goal of the total from his first two NHL seasons combined.
Dec. 16, 2017 Hanifin scored the go-ahead goal in the second period as the Carolina Hurricanes defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 on Saturday night. Hanifin's sixth goal of the season is now one more than the team's other six defensemen combined. The fifth overall pick in the 2015 draft had four goals in each of his first two seasons.
Nov. 29, 2017 Hanifin scored his fourth goal of the season on his only shot in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to Columbus. The third-year blueliner already has matched his goal total from each of his first two NHL seasons. Hanifin has two goals and two assists in his last three games, and the No. 5 overall pick in 2015 could be turning into one of the better defensemen fantasy-wise.
Nov. 27, 2017 Hanifin recorded his ninth assist of the season Sunday for the 'Canes. With 12 points in 22 games, Hanifin, barring injury, should top his career best of 29 points set in 81 games last season.
Nov. 10, 2017 Hanifin had an assist Friday at Columbus. He has one assist in each of the last three games.
March 30, 2017 Hanifin scored 2:16 into overtime as the Carolina Hurricanes rallied to beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 on Thursday. He has seven points in his last 11 games.
Nov. 7, 2016 Hanifin registered his team-leading seventh assist Sunday. The fifth overall pick in 2015 had 18 assists in 79 games as a rookie last season.
Oct. 21, 2016 Hanifin had a career-high three assists Thursday, including two on the power play. Hanifin had 22 points as a rookie last season and has the potential to be a solid producer from the blue line, though he does have a minus-4 rating through four games for the lowly Hurricanes.
July 11, 2015 The Hurricanes have signed first-round draft pick Noah Hanifin to a three-year, entry-level contract. Under terms of the deal announced Saturday, the defenseman will make $832,500 at the NHL level or $70,000 in the minor leagues through the 2017-18 season. Hanifin also receives a $277,500 signing bonus. The Hurricanes selected the 18-year-old with the No. 5 overall pick in last month's draft. He had five goals and 18 assists in 37 games as a freshman at Boston College this past season.

2018-06-25 analysis No surprise here as Calgary just acquired Hanifin from the Hurricanes during the 2018 NHL Draft. The 21-year-old blueliner has increased his point total in each of his three NHL seasons, notching 10 goals and 32 points during the 2017-18 campaign. Hanifin will likely get a fairly sizable contract as the Flames look to lock him up for as long as possible.

2018-05-01 analysis Throughout his first three NHL seasons, Hanifin's been able to raise his point total each campaign, and 2017-18 marked his first season above 30 points. It seemed Hanifin was becoming more comfortable in the offensive zone as well, as his 165 shots on net were a new career high by 43, and also enjoyed a 63.1 offensive zone start percentage showing the team's confidence in his ability in the opposi

2018-03-24 analysis Nabbed by the Hurricanes with the fifth overall pick in the 2015 draft, Hanifin needs one more goal or assist to set a personal best in the points column in his young career. He has been lax defensively, though, as evidenced by a minus-50 rating through 231 games.

2018-03-19 analysis With Carolina only having 10 games left remaining in the regular season, it's unclear if Hanifan will be able to return before playoffs roll around. Further, with Carolina also sitting nine points below the second wild card slot in the Eastern Conference, there's little reason to rush the youngster back unless a hot streak emerges, and his 2017-18 campaign could very well be finished.

2018-03-15 analysis Although he's currently just one point shy of the 30-point mark, the 20-year-old Hanifin continues to experience the usual growing pains of a young NHL'er, not the least of which is his play in his own end.

2018-03-15 update Hanifin is a combined minus-8 over his last 15 games, with just a goal and two assists over that span.
2018-02-24 analysis It was his first goal in 28 games and just his second point in 12. Hanifin is a smooth-skating talent who will flirt with 35 points this season, but he's run a bit cold of late. Fingers crossed this goal will re-ignite this talented youngster.
2018-02-24 update Hanifin notched his eighth goal of the season in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Red Wings.
2018-02-10 analysis True, Hanifin's as streaky as they come, and his points tend to come in bunches. However, the 21-year-old blueliner is now just three points away from matching the career-high 29 points he posted last season, and that's with 27 games still to play. As a third-pairing defenseman who sees a decent amount of time on the power play (1:48), he continues to represent solid fantasy value in deeper league
2018-02-10 update Hanifin snapped a four-game pointless stretch with an assist in Friday's 4-1 win over the Canucks.
2018-01-26 analysis A defenseman skating to a plus-5 in a game where his team allows five goals is something of a modern hockey miracle, but it actually happened to two Hurricanes in this one (Trevor van Riemsdyk was the other). Nonetheless, the trio of apples snapped a seven-game point drought for Hanifin, who's now up to 24 on the season. The 20-year-old should easily surpass his career high of 29 points with 33 ga
2018-01-26 update Hanifin dished out three assists and skated to a plus-5 rating in a 6-5 win over Montreal on Thursday.
2018-01-24 analysis The 20-year old Hanifin had a terrific start to the season with 15 points in his first 27 games, which vaulted him into fantasy relevance and even earned him an All-Star nomination. However, he's been stone cold over the past few weeks, with just six points in his last 21 games, along with a minus-5 rating. Overall, Hanifin has shown he can be a decent points producer over short stretches, but nee
2018-01-24 update Hanifin fired three shots on goal in 21:16 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Penguins, but failed to register a point for the seventh consecutive game.
2017-12-22 analysis This one was over quickly as all four Carolina goals came within the first six and a half minutes of the first period, chasing Preds starter Pekka Rinne from the net and allowing the Canes to coast to an easy win. Despite playing just 16:35 (about two minutes under his season average ice time of 18:25), Hanifin was instrumental in getting his team on the board quickly, assisting on Derek Ryan's po
2017-12-22 update Hanifin registered a goal and two assists along with six shots on goal during Thursday's 4-1 win over Nashville.
2017-12-03 analysis Hanifin is really on a roll at the moment, with 10 points over his last 14 games. He may only be seeing 17-18 minutes of ice per game, but keep in mind 64% of his five-on-five shifts start in the offensive zone, which puts him in a great position to continue piling up the points. Now with 14 points through 25 games, Hanifin is on pace for a career-high 45-point season. Make sure the young defender
2017-12-03 update Hanifin scored the game-winning goal in overtime against the Panthers on Saturday. He also added a season-high seven shots on goal and chipped in with five PIM.
2017-11-25 analysis Hanifin skated 15:53 in the defeat, which isn't much for a blueliner. While the 20-year-old has been seeing fewer minutes of late, he still remains on the power play and has racked up four points in his last five games. Hanifin is building off the career-high 29 points he recorded last season and appears destined for another successful campaign this time around. The youngster is heating up right n
2017-11-25 update Hanifin scored his third goal of the season and added an assist in Friday's loss to the Maple Leafs.
2017-11-05 analysis Hanifin has been skating on the Canes' third pairing this season, but is still seeing a healthy amount of ice time, averaging 19:06 per game with 2:18 coming on the power play. That being said, he remains a lower-tier fantasy option until he can start hitting the scoresheet with more regularity.
2017-11-05 update Hanifin snapped a five-game pointless drought with an assist in Saturday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Coyotes.
2017-10-22 analysis Don't look now, but Hanifin currently leads all Hurricanes defensemen with 4 points through his first six games. After scoring 29 points last season (4G, 25A), he is poised to take a big step forward this year. He continues to skate in a top-four role on the Canes' blue line, averaging just under 18 minutes per game opposite Justin Faulk. He also sees decent time on the power play (2:48), making h
2017-10-22 update Hanifin registered an assist for the second consecutive game in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Stars.
2017-10-10 analysis The young rearguard also fired five shots on goal, a tally he only reached on two occasions last year. It's hard to believe that Hanifin already has two full NHL campaigns under his belt when he's still just 20, but that's often the nature of the game these days when it comes to the most highly touted prospects. Look for the 2015 fifth-overall pick to take a run at eclipsing the career-high 29 poi
2017-10-10 update Hanifin found twine in Saturday's 5-4 shootout victory over the Wild.
2017-09-30 analysis Hanifin, who averaged just under 18 minutes of ice time last season, could be set to take another step forward this year if Friday's game is any indication. The 20-year-old defender registered four goals and 25 assists in 2016-17, but if he continues seeing more on-ice responsibility, you could see him crack the 30-point barrier this season. He's got plenty of upside and is definitely worth a pi
2017-09-30 update Hanifin scored a goal on four shots during the Hurricanes' final preseason game, a 3-1 win over the Capitals on Friday. He was also one of the leaders in ice time with 21:16, including a team-best 5:08 on the power play.
