Justin Faulk of Hurricanes out with upper-body injury

Defenseman listed as week to week after leaving game Sunday @NHLdotcom

Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Justin Faulk is week to week with an upper-body injury, coach Bill Peters said Tuesday.

Faulk had an MRI Monday. He did not travel for the rematch against the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center on Tuesday (7 p.m. ET; MSG+, FS-CR, NHL.TV).

"By the time we get home we'll know more," Peters said. "I'd say he's more than day to day right now. I'd say week to week. I'd rule him out for this week, so I'd be safe to say that."

Faulk was injured during a 4-1 loss to the Devils at PNC Arena on Sunday. He has three goals and six points in 11 games.
