Carolina Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward is back on the ice today with a "full range of motion", according to Head Trainer and Conditioning Coach, Pete Friesen. Ward elected to stay off the ice yesterday at Canada's Olympic Orientation Camp in Calgary because of a sore back.
"He woke up Sunday with some discomfort in his back and was checked out with an MRI, which found nothing. It's just bad timing for Cam", said Friesen, who confirmed that the goalie was feeling better today.
Will this be something that comes up from time to time during the season? The Hurricanes are no strangers to preseason injuries as Rod Brind`Amour and Justin Williams both injured themselves before training camp started last season. Scott Walker then broke his hand in an exhibition game.
Carolina will be hoping for better luck at the beginning of this year.
