Cam Ward has MCL sprain, will miss 6-8 weeks
The Carolina Hurricanes will have to move on with Dan Ellis as their No. 1 goalie for the foreseeable future.

The Carolina Hurricanes will have to move on with Dan Ellis as their No. 1 goalie for the foreseeable future.

Hurricanes president and general manager Jim Rutherford announced Monday that goalie Cam Ward has been diagnosed with a third-degree sprain of the medial collateral ligament and is expected to be sidelined for six to eight weeks, which could take him to the end of the regular season.

Carolina leads the Southeast Division with 25 points, four more than Winnipeg in the same amount of games played (21).

Ward was injured midway through the second period of Carolina's 3-2 win over Florida on Sunday. He is 9-6-1 with a 2.84 goals-against average and .908 save percentage this season.

Ellis, who replaced Ward on Sunday, has appeared in seven games and is 3-2-1 with a 2.53 GAA and .923 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
