Hurricanes Place Cam Ward on Injured Reserve
Mike Murphy recalled from Charlotte on an emergency basis
Ward was suffered a lower-body injury 4:07 into the first period of the Hurricanes’ game last night at Minnesota. He is expected to miss three to four weeks.
Murphy, 24, is 1-2-0 with a 3.81 goals-against average in three games with Charlotte this season. The Kingston, Ont., native has appeared in two career NHL games with the Hurricanes, playing for 36 minutes without allowing a goal. Murphy was Carolina’s sixth-round selection (165th overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
