RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The Carolina Hurricanes say goalie Cam Ward has a lower body injury and will miss Tuesday’s game against Winnipeg. The Hurricanes have recalled goalie Daniel Altshuller from the minor leagues.

The Hurricanes announced the moves before their home game against the Jets.

Coach Bill Peters says “if this was Game 82 and we’d need to win, (Ward would be) available. It’s not.” He expects Ward to travel to Ottawa for Thursday night’s game and says Eddie Lack will start against the Jets. Ward was hurt during a victory over the New York Islanders on Saturday night.

Peters also says defenseman Justin Faulk is “real close” to returning but will miss his third straight game. Faulk suffered a lower-body injury last Thursday when he collided with teammate Brad Malone during practice.
