Canes activate Faulk, place Lindholm on IR
Posted January 5
Raleigh, N.C. — The Carolina Hurricanes activated defenseman Justin Faulk from injured reserve Thursday ahead of a road tilt against St. Louis and placed, forward Elias Lindholm on injured reserve.
Lindholm's placement in IR (upper body) is retroactive to Dec. 30 when he was injured against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Faulk, 24, is tied for seventh among NHL defensemen in goals (7) and is sixth among all Hurricanes skaters in points (16) this season despite missing seven games.
