Joel Ward out against Carolina with wrist injury

New, comments

John Glennon reports that Joel Ward will miss tonight's game with Carolina (be sure to check out the Game Day Preview), due to a wrist injury that shouldn't keep him out for anything more than one game. This is why Ben Guite was recalled last night, just in case Ward couldn't go.

This leaves David Legwand without both of his regular wingers on the shutdown line, although the Preds are catching a bit of a break since star center Eric Staal won't play tonight for the Hurricanes. Glennon's blog also says that Jerred Smithson is skating, but still a ways from returning to action, and Pekka Rinne will be debuting some new equipment tonight in goal.

Tip o' the hat to smashville for posting a FanShot on this.
