Canes Place Williams on Injured Reserve

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has placed right wing Justin Williams on the injured reserve list. Williams suffered a broken hand during the team’s game in Buffalo on Feb. 15.

The Hurricanes also released the names of the players still hospitalized as a result of last night’s accident in Massachusetts involving the Albany River Rats’ team bus. Forwards Joe Jensen and Nicolas Blanchard and defensemen Casey Borer and Jonathan Paiement remain hospitalized at Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield, MA., for treatment of injuries suffered during the accident, which occurred on the Massachusetts Turnpike just before 3:30 a.m. Team broadcaster John Hennessy also remains in the hospital. None of the injuries are considered life-threatening.

The American Hockey League has cancelled the River Rats’ game that was scheduled for Friday against Bridgeport, and no makeup date has been set. A decision will be made on Friday as to whether Sunday’s scheduled match-up with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton will be played.
