Cam Ward has inked a two-year, $6.6 million contract extension with the Carolina Hurricanes.
With that, Ward has been removed from the pool of potential 2016 unrestricted free agents. His new deal is unsurprisingly a big step down from his now expired six-year, $37.8 million deal. Ward didn't live up to that contract overall, but he should be worth his new salary. Ward posted a 2.41 GAA and .909 save percentage in 52 contests in 2015-16. Jun 16 - 11:51 AM

Cam Ward hasn't met with the Carolina Hurricanes yet to discuss a potential new contract.

Ward's exit meeting was also pushed back, though the reason for that isn't clear. He's set to become an unrestricted free agent, but he's interested in re-signing with the Hurricanes. It's not clear if that interest is mutual, but given that Eddie Lack had a fairly rough 2015-16 campaign, the Hurricanes might be interest in signing Ward to at least a short-term contract to buy them more time to determine if Lack is really a good choice to serve as their starter going forward.

Life-long Carolina Hurricane Cam Ward wants to stay with the only organization he's ever known.

"I believe in the group we have here, and where this organization is going," Ward told Michelle McMahon. "I can't say enough good things. Usually there's one rookie, but to have three, that's not normal, and they are the real deal" Of course Ward speaks of rookie defenders Noah Hanifin, Jaccob Slavin, and Brett Pesce who each saw at least 63 games of action in 2015-16. As for Ward, he just completed his fourth straight season with a sub-.920 even-strength save percentage and is now 32-years-old. He also just completed a six-year pact that dinged the cap at $6.3M per so he'll need to take quite a hair cut if he wants a starting gig. Assuming someone, anyone, will give him such a thing.

Ward turned away 35 of 36 shots, including all seven on special teams and all five more in the shootout to secure the victory. The Bruins mind you are on the cusp of not making the playoffs now. Ward's record rises to 23-16-10 on the season with the effort.

The shootout loss drops his record to 21-16-10. An unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, it'll be interesting to see if Ward returns to Carolina or tries to turn his career around in another environment.
