Cam Ward has worked hard over the summer and appears determined to earn back his number one role in Carolina's crease.
He added some muscle and changed his diet after injuries kept him on the shelf for the majority of the last two seasons. "We still believe he can be an elite goalie in this league," GM Ron Francis said. "By the same token, Cam understands what he needs to do to get back to that level. He could have done one of two things in the off-season – either sit back and relax, or work twice as hard toward having a better year. From what I have heard, he chose to work hard." He's looking forward to competing with Anton Khudobin for starts and he believes that the two of them will form a solid tandem. Sep 3 - 6:36 PM

Cam Ward has a full no-trade clause, but TSN's Bob McKenzie says it's believed that he would waive it under the right circumstances.

Ward's name came up in trade rumors over the course of the season, but injuries and poor play may have scared away possible suitors. He still appears to be available, as the Hurricanes look set to hand their crease over to Anton Khudobin.

Cam Ward had a terrible 2013-14 campaign.

Ward was plagued by injuries and ended up with a 3.06 GAA and .898 save percentage in 30 games. "I struggled to get comfortable all season long," Ward said. "Obviously I got the injury, and coming back from that I felt like I was playing catchup. I wasn't able to get consecutive games to try and get my game going. Anton had a great season. I was never able to get into a rhythm." At this point, it wouldn't be surprising if Carolina's preference is to go into 2014-15 with Anton Khudobin as the team's starter. They might trade Ward if there's a team out there that will take his $6.3 million cap hit through 2015-16.

Cam Ward allowed three goals on the first nine shots he faced Tuesday night, ultimately leading to him getting pulled just over six minutes into the game.

Cam Ward was the best player on the ice in Saturday's 3-2 win over Winnipeg.

He made to key saves off Bryan Little in the first period and kept his teammates in the game. Even Jets' coach Paul Maurice acknowledged Ward as being the difference in the contest. "Cam Ward was the story of this hockey game," Maurice said. "He was the best player on the ice." With continued good play we would not be surprised if Ward regained his starting job in the Carolina net despite the heroics of Anton Khudobin this season.
