The team announced Ward's diagnosis Monday and said the former All-Star goalie will not require surgery. The team-issued timeline places Ward's potential return in mid- to late-April. The regular season ends April 27.
Analysis: The Hurricanes say Ward suffered a third-degree sprain to his medial collateral ligament midway through the second period of Sunday night's 3-2 win at Florida. He hurt his left knee when teammate Justin Faulk slid into him while the defenseman tried to stop Florida's Jack Skille from skating toward the net. The injury makes backup Dan Ellis the team's No. 1 goalie. Ellis is 3-2-1 with a 2.53 goals-against average in his first season in Carolina.
