Cam Ward played in his 500th career game on Tuesday.
Ward is just the 64th goaltender in NHL history to reach that feat. He managed to reach the milestone just before his 31st birthday (February 29th), but he would have gotten there even sooner if not for the lockout and his injury woes over the 2013 and 2013-14 campaigns. He has bounced back this season with a 2.35 GAA and .914 save percentage in 39 contests. Feb 25 - 9:35 AM

Cam Ward posted his third straight victory Tuesday night as he turned aside 23 of 24 shots in a 4-1 victory over the Flyers.

The win also marked the fifth in six outings for the former Conn Smythe Trophy winner, but this stretch has included defeats of the Maple Leafs, Senators and Coyotes so we're hesitant to proclaim his fully rejuvenated. His record improves to 16-19-4 with the win, while his GAA is 2.35 and his save percentage is .914.

Cam Ward is set to make his 500th appearance on Tuesday night against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Ward has won a Stanley Cup, a Conn Smythe, and is the career leader in just about every major goalie category for the Carolina/Hartford franchise. Tonight he'll make his 500th career appearance. "He’s a real good goaltender. He’s a calm guy and a good, quiet leader in our room," Peters said. "I know it gives our team a lot of confidence when he’s in our net." Through Carolina's myriad of struggles this season, Ward has managed to put together a decent season with a 15-19-4 record with a .913 save percentage and a 2.39 GAA through 38 games.

Cam Ward stopped 23 of 24 shots in Carolina's 2-1 win over Toronto on Friday.

Cam Ward will get the start versus the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday night.

This will be start number 499 of his career, can you believe it's been nearly 10 years since his and the Canes' Stanley Cup? Sigh. Ward comes in to tonight's tilt with a 14-19-4 record with 89 goals against in 37 games this season. Not too shabby considering where Carolina is likely to finish in the standings this season. In 11 starts sine 2011 versus Toronto, Ward is 7-3-1 with 25 goals against.

Cam Ward is just two games away from reaching the 500 milestone.

Only 63 goaltenders in the history of the game have reached that feat. Ward was limited to 47 contests over the previous two campaigns due to the lockout, injury problems, and on-ice struggles, but he's bounced back this season with a 2.43 GAA and .912 save percentage in 37 contests.
Feb 20 - 7:26 AM

Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward made 29 saves in Carolina`s 6-3 triumph over the Senators in Ottawa Monday night.

Ward improved his season record to 14-19-4. He has a 2.43 goals-against average and a .912 save percentage. The Canes are doing better in 2015 than they were in 2014 but we don't suggest you go out and grab Ward for your fantasy team just yet, unless you're desperate. The Canes still aren't that good and Ward's having an inconsistent season.
