JUSTIN FAULK RUMORS & GOSSIP

Justin Faulk: Building Block or Centerpiece?

“Rebuilding” in sports is usually a long, painful process and the Hurricanes have seemingly been stuck in one for the last four years or so.  It wasn’t planned for it to end up like this, but the reality is that the Hurricanes have finished out of the playoffs in seven of the last eight seasons and there have been indications of changes being ahead this off-season. Most of...

Justin Faulk signs six-year extension with Carolina

The bright spots have been few and far between for the Carolina Hurricanes on the ice this season. Luckily, Carolina has secured one of their future building blocks with a brand new contract extension.

Justin Faulk vs. Team USA's Other Defensemen

Those eager to see Justin Faulk play in this year's Olympics are pretty disappointed right now, as the Hurricanes young defenseman has yet to see the ice. He was scratched in all three games in the preliminary round and is currently listed as the team's 8th defenseman, which means he probably won't get into the lineup unless another blue-liner has a noticeably bad performance...

With Faulk out, Canes' defense faces test

Playing 48 games in 99 days was bound to make this NHL season a test of attrition. For the Carolina Hurricanes, that idea took on a new grimness and immediacy when the team announced on Wednesday that defenseman Justin Faulk, who leads the Hurricanes in average time on ice per game, would miss the next two to four weeks with a second-degree sprain of his MCL. Already playing without...

Hurricanes Top 25 Under 25: #3 Justin Faulk

A point that I have constantly refuted with most of the players in this feature is that it usually takes a few years for them to develop and they likely won't be playing in the NHL everyday until they are in their 20's. For the Hurricanes, Justin Faulk has been one of the two exceptions to that rule. When you have a defenseman in your organization who is only 19 years old...

Rookie Faulk justifying All-Star selection

RALEIGH, N.C. -- In the span of nine months, Carolina Hurricanes' rookie defenseman Justin Faulk has gone from a star leading Minnesota-Duluth to the national championship to an NHL All-Star. The 39 weeks filling that sizeable gap since winning a college title have been full of an emotional roller coaster, and certainly plenty of change for the 19-year-old from South St. Paul...

'Canes Insider: Keeping Faulk around

Rookie defenseman Justin Faulk can receive the best experience by staying with the Hurricanes instead of playing for the U.S. team in the world junior championships. The decision comes in part because Faulk has been playing regular minutes since a brief stint in the American Hockey League with Charlotte. So the decision to keep Faulk instead of releasing him to the national team...

TORONTO — Did he or didn't he? Will he or won't he? Canes rookie defenseman Justin Faulk said today he did not have the answer to either of two questions: did he score his first NHL goal Friday against the Winnipeg Jets, and will he play for Team USA in the upcoming 2012 World Junior Championship?
