Justin Williams is out for 4-6 months

From Chip Alexander of the News & Observer:

The Hurricanes suffered a big blow today when forward Justin Williams underwent surgery to repair a torn right Achilles tendon.

Williams, who suffered the injury in an off-ice workout this morning, is expected to be out four to six months. The seven-year veteran missed much of last season with a serious knee injury.

“It’s certainly a setback for us,” general manager Jim Rutherford said. “We were looking forward to Justin having a big year. This doesn’t mean he won’t be a part of it. He can come back for the most important part of it.

That is a tough, tough injury for the Hurricanes.  Williams can’t seem to catch a break as he missed a significant amount of time last season with a knee injury.  The Hurricanes just lost 70+ points from their roster and are going to have to hope other forwards pick it up while he is out of the line up.
