Hurricanes to be without Antti Raanta for at least two weeks

Feb 10, 2024, 04:39 PM ET

Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Antti Raanta will be out at least two weeks because of a lower-body injury.

Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour told reporters of Raanta’s status following the team’s morning skate on Saturday.

Raanta, 34, last played Thursday in relief of starter Pyotr Kochetkov in the second period against the Colorado Avalanche but didn’t return for the third period of Carolina’s 5-2 victory.

The goaltender is 12-7-2 this season with one shutout, a 2.99 goals-against average and an NHL-worst .872 save percentage in 24 games (20 starts) among goaltenders with at least eight starts.

On Saturday, the Hurricanes will play host to the New Jersey Devils and will wear commemorative Hartford Whalers uniforms, honoring the club’s former home before it relocated to North Carolina.
