Hurricanes place Staal, Ward on injured list, recall Dwyer from AHL

The Carolina Hurricanes have placed goalie Cam Ward and All-star centre Eric Staal on the injured list.

The team said Thursday that Ward was put on the long-term injured list, while Staal was placed on injured list.

Ward has been out nearly two weeks since his leg was cut by a skate. Staal has been out since Nov. 1 with an upper body injury.

The Hurricanes recalled right-winger Patrick Dwyer from Albany of the AHL to fill a roster spot. Dwyer is eligible to make his season debut with Carolina on Thursday night against Toronto. He had one goal in 13 regular-season games last year, and had an assist in two playoff games.
