Hurricanes likely to stand pat

With news that Anton Khudobin has been placed on injured reserve with a lower-body injury, it had been speculated that the Hurricanes could go fishing for a goalie.

However, Carolina GM Jim Rutherford and head coach Kirk Muller both indicated that Khudobin's injury isn't serious and he could miss a week of action.

"Hopefully he's back sooner than later," Muller told the team's website.

In Khudobin's absence, the Hurricanes have recalled netminder Justin Peters from the AHL.

It was believed that Rutherford could try to put in a claim on veteran goaltender Martin Biron, who had been placed on waivers by the New York Rangers earlier today, but that seems unlikely.

"It's an opportunity for Cam (Ward) to pick up some more games," Muller said of his starting goalie. "That's why you can't look ahead because we were just playing it back and forth with them because they were playing so well.

"Now Cam has an opportunity to have a few games, and it gives Khudobin a chance to heal up to 100 percent."
