Hurricanes' defenseman Frank Kaberle will miss the next 2-4 weeks with a broken foot. He was injured blocking a shot in the 2nd period of Friday's loss to the Kings. Anton Babchuk took his place in the lineup for tonight's game. Tuomo Ruutu is also missing his 2nd consecutive game with a groin injury.
Carolina has been plagued by injuries since the begininning of the season. GM Jim Rutherford will have to wait before trying to trade Kaberle who was on the trade market since training camp.
