The Carolina Hurricanes [1] released a sobering piece of news this morning [2]following Scott Walker’s tumultuous series against the Boston Bruins [3] that saw the scrappy Canes forward sucker-punch Aaron Ward [4] in Game 5 and then pot the OT game-winner in Game 7. Walker’s wife, Julie, has cervical cancer, but the disease is treatable and she is expected to make a full recovery. Walker learned of his wife’s diagnosis during the seven-game series against the Bruins.

“My wife is an amazing person and we are looking forward to a positive outcome from this challenge,’€ said Walker on Saturday afternoon. ‘€œI will address the situation with the media, but my family would appreciate its privacy going forward.’€
