Weekes’ 2.38 goals-against average in his first 100 games with the Hurricanes ranks first among goaltenders playing 100 games with the franchise.

Likewise, forward Josef Vasicek notched his 100th NHL/Hurricanes point on Feb. 4. Vasicek, the team’s leading goal-scorer this season, netted the first of two Carolina markers on the evening.
