Cam Ward, who can become an unrestricted free agent next summer, wants to stay with Carolina.
"Obviously, it's no secret I love being here and there's nowhere else I want to be," he said. "In a perfect world I'd like to have something done, but there's no pressure. I've just got to prepare myself for a great year, not just for myself but for the team. It's team first. We want to be ready." Ward outperformed Anton Khudobin last season in a bounce-back year, but in 2015-16 he is expected to compete with Eddie Lack, who was acquired from Vancouver. "From what I understand he's a great guy and obviously will push (me) and vice versa," Ward said. "It will be a similar situation to last year. Nothing is given to me. You've got to go out there and earn your ice time and right to play." Aug 27 - 7:21 PM

It appears that Cam Ward and the Carolina Hurricanes are working on a contract extension.

Ward is entering the final year of his six-year, $37.8M contract which brings a $6.3M cap hit. It's unclear what Ward is seeking in his extension, but the 31-year-old netminder's play has been slipping the last few seasons. So the news an extension is being worked on comes as a bit of a surprise.

Cam Ward made 27 saves in Carolina’s 2-0 loss to the Red Wings on Saturday night.

The final goal went in with the net empty. Ward ended the year by giving up two goals in two games. It’s clear, though, that the Hurricanes’ goaltending will need to be much better for them to make the jump into the playoffs next year, which is entirely possible because they looked much improved as the season wound down. Ward concludes with a 2.40 goals-against average and .910 save percentage.
