Cam Ward allowed three goals on 51 shots in Tuesday's 5-3 victory in Edmonton.
It was Ward's first appearance in the crease this season, as Scott Darling has taken over as the starter in Raleigh. However, this was vintage Ward, as he was peppered all evening due to lackluster defense, but he held down the high-octane Edmonton offense and provided his team a solid road victory. He proved he still has plenty left in the tank for when he is called upon. Oct 18 - 12:41 AM

Cam Ward will get the start in Tuesday's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

Ward has been serving as the backup goalie to Scott Darling this season. He finished last season with a 26-22-12 record, a 2.69 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage. He isn't worth owning in any fantasy leagues.

Look for Cam Ward to get at least one start on the Hurricanes' current road trip.

Ward, who has yet to play this season, will likely get one of the starts in the Province of Alberta. The Canes have two mid-week games against the Oilers and Flames. Check back with us next week for a confirmed start date.

Cam Ward understands that he'll likely be Carolina's backup goalie this year.

The Hurricanes traded for Scott Darling and handed him a four-year contract extension this off-season. "I’m realistic," Ward said. "I understand the situation. I know he was brought in here to sign a four-year deal for pretty good money not to be a backup. I know where I am in my career. … Certainly I’m a competitive guy and I still want to be able to play and I’ll do whatever I can to earn that ice time, but I’m hopeful he can make that next step. He deserves that." Ward almost certainly won't see 61 starts this year like he did last year. His days of fantasy relevance are over.

Apr 4 - 1:30 PM

Cam Ward faced 22 shots Saturday night and gave up one goal, but two empty netters handed the Hurricanes a 3-0 loss to the Stars Saturday night.

Ward was coming off a four-game winning streak and was 5-0-3 in the last eight games as the Hurricanes rode a 13-game point streak. Ward’s save percentage during this period was a respectable .914, but it will probably go for naught as the Canes practically needed to sweep their remaining games to make the playoffs.

Cam Ward stopped 23 of 24 shots in a 2-1 overtime win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday.

Mar 30 - 9:52 PM

The win improves his record to 25-20-11 on the year with a 2.69 goals against average and .905 save percentage.
