Canes put goalie Ward on IR with concussion

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes have placed veteran goalie Cam Ward on injured reserve with a concussion.

General manager Ron Francis also said Wednesday that the team has recalled goalie Daniel Altshuller from its minor-league affiliate in Charlotte.

Ward is 14-11-5 this season with a goals-against average of 2.41, and he's stopping 90.5 percent of the shots he faces.

The Hurricanes have earned points in each of his last five appearances, with three wins and two overtime losses in that span.
