Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Tim Gleason will miss one week with a lower-body injury, the Raleigh News & Observer’s Chip Alexander reports.

It’s the continuation of a tough year for the 30-year-old, who’s only been able to play in seven games in 2013-14. Here are the ailments he’s already dealt with this calendar year, via the Hockey News:

  • He missed six games earlier in November with an upper-body injury.
  • Gleason sat out 10 games with a concussion in October.
  • Extending back to last season, he was unable to play in six contests thanks to a lower-body ailment.

So, yeah, things haven’t exactly gone well for Gleason lately. The same can be said for Carolina; the Hurricanes just ended a four-game losing streak on Sunday.
