Carolina Hurricanes activate goalie Cam Ward from long-term injured list

The Carolina Hurricanes have activated goaltender Cam Ward from the long-term injured list.

Ward had missed the last 13 games after he was cut on the leg by a skate in a game at Columbus on Nov. 7. Ward is eligible to play at New Jersey on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old Ward is one of the cornerstones of the Carolina franchise, and won the Conn Smythe trophy as the MVP of the playoffs during the Hurricanes' 2006 run to the Stanley Cup title.
