NHL Injury Update: Ward, Salvador, Canucks, Coyle


Here is your NHL injury update for October 28:

Cam Ward had an MRI on Sunday to assess his injury. It is now confirmed that he will be out of the Carolina Hurricanes line up for 2-3 weeks. Ward has been out since October 24 with a lower body injury.

Bryce Salvador will be out of the New Jersey Devils line up for at least a week. Although X rays of his foot were clear but an MRI showed he has a non displaced stress fracture.

The Vancouver Canucks had a bit of good news today with Alexander Burrows possibly returning to the line up tonight after being injured in the first game of the season. However they will lose Jordan Schroeder for two months with an ankle injury, Jannik Hansen for 3-4 weeks with an upper body injury and Dale Weise will also be out 3-4 weeks with a lower body injury.

Good news for the Minnesota Wild as Charlie Coyle may be able to return as soon as Friday from his knee injury. He has been out since October 5.
