Carolina Hurricanes' head coach, Rod Brind-Amour announced on Thursday that starting goaltender, Frederik Andersen, tweaked something in his lower-body at practice and that he should be looked at as day-to-day moving forward. Certainly a tough blow for the Canes and for Freddy, who has had no shortage of injury trouble in recent years.

The former Anaheim Duck and Toronto Maple Leaf has been mostly solid over his 10-year career in the NHL but has dealt with his fair share of injuries in the past. He is coming off a season in which he appeared in 52 games for the Hurricanes, boasting a 35-14-3 record and posting a .922 SV% to go along with a sparkling 2.17 GAA.
This year hasn't been nearly as strong for the Denmark native. He has appeared in 8 games this season with a 5-3-0 record, a subpar .891 SV%, and a 2.72 GAA. His last 6 games have been especially troubling, as he posted a .863 SV% while allowing 20 goals on 146 shots including his most recent loss at the hands of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The recent injury could be a cause for concern as Andersen missed the entire playoffs last year after suffering lower-body injury near the end of April. The Hurricanes entered the Stanley Cup Playoffs with Antti Raanta and Pyotr Kochetkov and then subsequently fell in the second round to the New York Rangers.
