ST. PAUL, Minn. - Carolina Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward will miss three to four weeks because of a lower-body injury that forced him out of the game at Minnesota just minutes after the faceoff.

Ward was replaced by Justin Peters 4:07 in after skating off the ice Thursday night. The Hurricanes announced in the second period the timetable for Ward's absence, without specifying the nature of his injury.

The team will recall goalie Mike Murphy from the Charlotte Checkers of the AHL before the game Friday night against the Colorado Avalanche. Peters was an AHL call-up, too, 10 days earlier after goalie Anton Khudobin sustained a lower-body injury.

Ward started eight of Carolina's first 10 games.

Murphy has played in two career NHL games.
