NHL: Report: Hurricanes F Max Pacioretty to have MRI

Carolina Hurricanes forward Max Pacioretty will have an MRI on Monday for a lower-body injury, the Raleigh News & Observer reported Friday.

Delaying the 34-year-old veteran’s exam until next week will “allow things to settle down,” per the report.

Pacioretty sustained a non-contact injury in the final seconds of Thursday night’s 5-2 home win against the Minnesota Wild.

He was skating with the puck when he suddenly pulled up, grabbing the back of his lower right leg — the same leg that required surgery for a torn Achilles tendon in August.

“Hopefully it’s not as bad as we think, but I’m not too optimistic right now,” Canes coach Rod Brind’Amour said after the game.

Acquired in a July trade with the Vegas Golden Knights, Pacioretty did not make his season debut until Jan. 5. He has three goals in five games this season.

Pacioretty has 645 points (326 goals, 319 assists) in 855 career games with the Montreal Canadiens, Golden Knights and Hurricanes.
