RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) The Carolina Hurricanes have placed goalie Cam Ward on injured reserve with an unspecified lower-body injury and recalled Mike Murphy from Charlotte to replace him.

The team announced the moves Friday, one day after Ward was injured 4:07 into the first period of a 3-1 loss at Minnesota.

Ward, who started eight of Carolina's first 10 games, is expected to miss 3-4 weeks.

Murphy is 1-2-0 with a 3.81 goals-against average in three games with Charlotte and has played in two career NHL games.
