With Ward out with injured leg, Hurricanes sign veteran goalie Manny Legace

The Carolina Hurricanes are turning to veteran goalie Manny Legace to help replace the injured Cam Ward.

The Hurricanes on Monday signed Legace to a one-year contract that will pay him US$500,000 at the NHL level or $105,000 if he is sent to the minors.

The 36-year-old has a career NHL record of 177-92-36 and was 2-2 with a 3.21 goals-against average this season with the AHL's Chicago Wolves

Carolina was searching for help in net because Ward will be out for up to four weeks. The 2006 Conn Smythe Trophy winner's leg was cut by a skate Saturday night in Columbus during the Hurricanes' club-record 12th straight loss.
