Scott Walker Has Shoulder Surgery

The Carolina Hurricanes announced today that forward Scott Walker had shoulder surgery this morning and will be out of the lineup for 4-6 weeks.  Walker has had an injury riddled season so far and has provided little offensive production to date.  Most recently, he was playing minimal minutes on the fourth line with Rod Brind`Amour and Stephane Yelle, a line many referred to as "the oldest line in the NHL."

It was also announced that Sergei Samsonov would miss Thursday night's game against the Predators, leaving the Hurricanes down two forwards heading into their next contest.  The team has recalled two forwards from Albany, most likely Zach Boychuk and Jiri Tlusty.  Both youngsters played well in Saturday's matinee in New York and Tlusty chipped in with an assist.

For those of you anticipating the return of Erik Cole and Chad LaRose, it seems you will have to wait a bit longer.  Neither player has returned to practice yet, even in a yellow jersey.  There is no official word from the club about the status of either player.    

The Canes are in the middle of a four day break between games, but will play three games in four days starting Thursday night in Nashville.  After that they will return home for games against the Colorado Avs on Friday night and the Ottawa Senators on Sunday.
