Jordan Martinook Will Miss Up To 2 Months After Core Muscle Surgery On Friday

RALEIGH, NC – Don Waddell, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that Hurricanes forward Jordan Martinook will undergo surgery on Friday to repair a core muscle injury. His recovery time is estimated to be six to eight weeks.

Martinook, 27, has posted one assist in four NHL games this season. The 6’1”, 204-pound forward set a career high with 15 goals in 2018-19 and added 10 assists while playing in all 82 regular-season games for the Hurricanes. Martinook also registered four assists in 10 playoff games as Carolina advanced to the 2019 Eastern Conference Final. The Brandon, Man., native has recorded 91 points (41g, 50a) in 333 career NHL games with Arizona and Carolina. Martinook was acquired by the Hurricanes from the Coyotes along with a fourth-round pick in the 2018 NHL Draft (Luke Henman) in exchange for Marcus Kruger and a third-round pick in the 2018 NHL Draft (Ty Emberson) on May 3, 2018.
