The Hurricanes recalled Darling from AHL Charlotte on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Darling was brought up since Curtis McElhinney (lower body) was placed on injured reserve. He'll likely serve as a backup in Tuesday's game versus the Maple Leafs but may get a crack at the starter's crease when the Hurricanes play in back-to-back games Thursday and Friday.

Darling is with AHL Charlotte having cleared waivers Friday, The Hockey News reports.

EDGE Analysis

While there are a few NHL teams that could use a goalie like Darling for depth purposes, the fact remains that he's making $4.15 million annually through the 2020-21 season, and that's simply too much money for a guy who has posted an .889 save percentage through 50 games with the Hurricanes. It's safe to drop Darling in fantasy leagues since he was unable to find any suitors and there's no telling how long he could be stuck in the AHL.

Darling will be waived by the Hurricanes on Thursday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Darling's had his fair shake in Raleigh, but the goalie formerly with the Blackhawks posted a 15-25-8 record, 3.17 GAA and .889 save percentage over 47 starts and 50 total games with the Hurricanes. Darling is in the second year of a contract that pays him $4.15 million annually, and it's readily apparent that his production doesn't match the bankroll. It'll be interesting to see if the Flyers scoop up Darling after waiving Calvin Pickard and retooling their management team this week.

Darling will patrol the crease as Saturday's road starter against the Islanders, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Curtis McElhinney has rattled off three straight wins and seems to have supplanted Darling as the No. 1 goalie for the Hurricanes, but Petr Mrazek -- who reportedly will serve as the backup to Darling in the upcoming contest -- is suddenly in the picture as well after overcoming a lower-body injury. At any rate, Darling will try to slow an Islanders team that sports an 8-1-0 record within the Metropolitan Division and sits just one point behind the Hurricanes in the standings.

Darling served as the backup goaltender for the third straight game Friday against the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Darling hasn't started a game since allowing four goals on 24 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Blue Jackets on Nov. 17. Since then, the Canes have won three in a row with Curtis McElhinney between the pipes, so Darling isn't likely to see another start for the foreseeable future. Make sure you downgrade him on your fantasy rosters accordingly.

Darling made 20 saves in a 4-1 loss to Columbus on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The Jackets' top line of Artemi Panarin, Pierre-Luc Dubois and Cam Atkinson were like kryptonite to Darling -- they accounted for nine points total, including three goals. He has done nothing to prove he has the ability to be a starting netminder in the NHL. Darling has allowed three or more goals in five of his six starts this season. Activate him at your own peril.

Darling will start in goal Saturday evening against the visiting Blue Jackets.

EDGE Analysis

Darling is looking to nail down his third win in four games, as he gets set to take on a Columbus team that's averaging 3.11 goals per game (tied with Tampa Bay and Washington for sixth in the NHL). Overall, Darling's performed admirably since returning from a lower-body injury Oct. 30, but there might be plenty of fantasy owner still avoiding the American backstop like the plague after he went 13-21-7 with a 3.18 GAA and .888 save percentage with the Hurricanes last season.

Darling steered away 33 of 35 shots in Monday's 3-2 overtime win against the Blackhawks.

EDGE Analysis

After Jonathan Toews and Alex DeBrincat lifted the Hawks to a 2-0 lead midway through the second period, Darling was perfect and allowed the Hurricanes to get back in the game before Sebastian Aho sealed the deal in overtime. Darling has faced at least 32 shots in four of his five starts, and he now has a 2-2-1 record coupled with a .913 save percentage.

Darling will be between the pipes at home against the Blackhawks on Monday, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Darling has allowed three goals in each of his four outings this season, giving him a 1-2-1 record and .905 save percentage. The netminder has been rather pedestrian since returning from a lower-body injury. Perhaps a visit from former teammate Cam Ward will incite the 29-year-old into a better performance Monday.

Darling permitted three goals on 32 shots from the Red Wings on Saturday, not including the shootout winner to Frans Nielsen in the 4-3 home loss.

EDGE Analysis

Darling was in cruise control for most of the game, but Anthony Mantha put the puck behind him twice in the third period to force overtime, and Carolina's top netminder was done in by Frans Nielsen -- the NHL's all-time shootout leader -- in the skills competition. By no means was this a poor performance from Darling; check out the highlight reel for his amazing save on Mantha in overtime, but counterpart Jonathan Bernier made 49 saves at the other end and simply outdueled him in Raleigh.
