BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Carolina Hurricanes center Jordan Staal was walking on crutches and will require further tests to determine the severity of a right leg injury sustained in a preseason game at Buffalo on Tuesday night.
Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said he didn't have an update from doctors after Staal had initial tests taken immediately following the 2-0 loss.
"I'm concerned for sure. He's a big piece of what we're going to do moving forward," Peters said. "Hopefully we catch a break here."
