RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -Carolina Hurricanes forward Scott Walker is expected to be sidelined for six weeks after surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left hand.
The surgery comes four days before the Hurricanes open the regular season Friday night against Florida.
The Hurricanes already will be without forward Justin Williams for at least three more months after he tore his right Achilles' tendon.
