Canes' Pitkanen suffers apparent leg injury

RALEIGH, N.C. -

Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Joni Pitkanen left Tuesday night's game against Washington early with an apparent leg injury.

Pitkanen was hurt with 1:57 left in the second period when he raced down the ice while trying to beat an icing call and collided with the Capitals' Troy Brouwer while hitting the boards.

He writhed on the ice in obvious pain and was taken off on a stretcher with his hands covering his face.

Pitkanen has one goal and eight assists in 22 games with the Hurricanes.
