Hurricanes' Lee Stempniak: Headed to injured reserve

Stempniak (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Monday.

The 34-year-old just can't stay healthy and will head to injured reserve for the second time this season. Stempniak suffered the injury just a couple shifts into his first conditioning game with AHL Charlotte on Friday, and the new ailment is reportedly separate from the back issues he's been dealing with. Josh Jooris and Phillip Di Giuseppe figure to receive increased roles in his absence.
