Update: Hurricanes say Ward will miss 3-4 weeks

Oct 24, 2013, 9:29 PM EDT

Update: Brutal news from the Hurricanes: Cam Ward will miss three-to-four weeks, the Raleigh News & Observer’s Chip Alexander reports. Mike Murphy has been recalled, so if the Carolina Hurricanes don’t make a move, their tandem will be Justin Peters and Murphy for some time.

Hurricanes just can’t seem to get much luck health-wise, especially in net. Justin Peters relieved Cam Ward in net on Thursday as Ward appeared to suffer a lower-body injury.

Ward, 29, needed knee surgery this offseason, so the hope is that his MCL problems aren’t returning.

The Hurricanes’ franchise goalie brought a two-game winning streak into tonight’s game after a rocky start to 2013-14. Carolina enjoyed some nice work from Anton Khudobin until he got injured again.

Brutal, especially since Carolina’s dealt with some tough breaks in its forward and defensive corps the past few years, too.
