Svechnikov has been sidelined by a concussion since being knocked out by Alex Ovechkin in Game 3 of the first round. Svechnikov has been cleared to play but a decision will be officially made after he gets through warmups. It looks like the rookie will be eased back into the lineup and start on the fourth line (with Greg McKegg and Patrick Brown) and second power-play unit. Svechnikov had two goals and one assist in just 34:46 TOI before getting hurt in the first round.

The Hurricanes select Andrei Svechnikov with the No.2 overall pick.
Svechnikov started his season with a hand injury that cost him 17 games, but he still went on to finish second in Barrie Colts’ scoring with 40 goals and 32 assists (72 points) in 44 games. Svechnikov could step into the NHL next season and plays a powerful offensive game.
