Hurricanes D Justin Faulk to miss 2-4 weeks with sprained right knee ligament

RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes say defenceman Justin Faulk will miss 2-4 weeks with a sprained knee ligament.

The team disclosed Faulk's diagnosis Wednesday and said the second-year defenceman will not need surgery.

He was hurt midway through the second period of Tuesday night's 4-1 loss to the Florida Panthers. He suffered a second-degree sprain of the medial collateral ligament in his right knee when he collided with Jack Skille behind the net.

Faulk has three goals, seven assists and 11 penalty minutes for the Hurricanes.

Three Carolina defencemen were injured during the first two periods of the loss to Florida, but Faulk was the only one who didn't return.

Quote of the Day

It's such a privilege to be one of these 80 great players to do this milestone, and it doesn't get better than this doing it where I started. It means a lot to me. A big thanks goes to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that and also all the players through my career.
