Hurricanes GM Don Waddell doesn't want to rule anything in or out when it comes to the team's goaltending situation.
Cam Ward can become an unrestricted free agent this summer, but he'd like to re-sign with the Hurricanes. Waddell anticipates the Hurricanes keeping Scott Darling, which might suggest that they will part ways with Ward, but Waddell isn't saying that. "I don’t want to close any doors yet," Waddell said. "I want to keep all my options. We don’t have to make a decision yet. We have some time on this." Given that Darling struggled in 2017-18, it would make sense to pair him with a goalie capable of filling in as the starter, like Ward. May 24 - 9:00 AM

With the Hurricanes' season over, Cam Ward's future is unclear.

Ward is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and it's not yet clear what the Hurricanes' level of interest is. The main problem is that the Hurricanes are presently without a general manager and it's probable that any significant contract negotiations won't take place until one is hired. Ward, 34, has spent his full 668-game career with the Hurricanes. He's by far the franchise leader in wins as he has 318 while the next highest goalie in Carolina's history is Arturs Irbe with 130.

Cam Ward allowed two goals on 34 shots in a 3-2 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Mar 24 - 5:23 PM

Cam Ward allowed five goals on 33 shots in Thursday's 6-5 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

Ward gave up one of the weirdest goals you'll ever see. With his team up 2-0 in the first period, he went behind the net to knock down a puck behind his net. Ward managed to make contact with the puck, but it got stuck in his skate without him realizing it. The 'Canes netminder then skated into his crease before backing his skate (with the puck stuck in it) over the goal line. It's one of the stranger goals you'll see. Still, the Hurricanes managed to come away with a win thanks to Jeff Skinner's late game-winning goal. Ward has a 20-13-4 record with a 2.84 goals-against-average and a .903 save percentage this season.
