Dec 7 - 7:40 PM

Cam Ward allowed two goals on 39 shots in a 3-2 overtime win over the Florida Panthers on Saturday night.

Dec 2 - 10:53 PM

Cam Ward is the Hurricanes' probable starting goalie for Saturday night's contest against Florida.

Scott Darling started and lost the first of back-to-back games Friday night, allowing three goals on 24 shots against the Rangers, so Ward could get the call against the Panthers. Ward is coming off a poor performance against the Maple Leafs in which he allowed four goals on only 16 shots and was pulled after two periods. For the season, Ward sports a 3-2-0 record with a 3.03 goals against average and a .907 save percentage.
Dec 2 - 8:20 AM

Cam Ward was given the hook in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

It was an ugly performance from the 'Canes goaltender, as he allowed four goals on just 16 shots in 40 minutes of action. Scott Darling came into the game at the start of the third period in relief of Ward. Darling was handed the loss after he allowed the fifth goal to the Maple Leafs. Ward will enter his next appearance with a 3.03 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage.
Nov 25 - 12:05 AM

Cam Ward will play between the pipes on Friday.

Ward turned aside 27 shots in a 4-2 victory over the Islanders in his last start on Sunday. He has a 3-2-0 record, 2.63 GAA, and .922 save percentage in five contests this season.
Nov 24 - 11:23 AM

Cam Ward made 27 stops on 29 shots to beat the Islanders 4-2 on Sunday.

Ward has now won two straight and improves to 3-2 this season with a 2.63 goals against average and .922 save percentage. The 33-year-old has provided reliable goaltending this season.
Nov 19 - 8:49 PM

Cam Ward will start Sunday's matchup against the New York Islanders.

Ward will get the nod in the second half of the back-to-back after Scott Darling was in goal for Saturday's 3-1 win over Buffalo. Ward has a 2-2-0 record with a 2.78 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage in 2017-18.
Nov 19 - 3:20 PM

Although we have listed Scott Darling as the probable starter for Saturday night's game against the Sabres, don't be too surprised if Cam Ward gets the start.

He has a terrific record against Buffalo. Ward went 3-0 against the Sabres last season kicking out 81 of 85 shots. Combined with Darling's poor effort against the Islanders Thursday night, Ward has a real chance to get the call Saturday evening against the Sabres.
Nov 18 - 8:56 AM

Cam Ward allowed one goal on 26 shots in Friday's 3-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Ward had no chance on the only goal he allowed, as Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky scored a beauty on a breakaway. That goal occurred just over five minutes into the game, but Ward was perfect after that point. The win improves his record to 2-2-0 on the season (this was his first win since Oct. 17). He'll enter his next appearance with a 2.79 goals-against-average and a .920 save percentage.
Nov 10 - 9:49 PM

Cam Ward will probably play between the pipes on Friday.

It would be just Ward's fourth game of the season as the Hurricanes have used their former starting goaltender sparingly. Carolina will probably go back to Scott Darling on Saturday.
Nov 10 - 12:38 PM

Cam Ward has started only three games this season.

Ward has been the Hurricanes starter his entire career and averaged eight games played in the opening month of October since his rookie season but played only twice this year as Scott Darling has replaced him as the number one netminder in Carolina. Ward played well in his two October games but that was not the case on Thursday as he gave up five goals on only 22 shots to Colorado. He has a 3.40 GAA and a .911 save percentage with a 1-2 record thus far.
Nov 5 - 7:19 AM

Cam Ward made 22 saves on 27 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday.

Ward came into the game having only allowed five goals in two starts this season. Unfortunately, he allowed five against the Avalanche on Thursday, and certainly didn't do much to change the Hurricanes' minds about who should be starting in goal. Ward now has a record of 1-2-0, a goals-against-average of 3.40, and a save percentage of .911.
Nov 3 - 12:09 AM

Cam Ward will play between the pipes Thursday night.

Ward's only started in two games this season, but he's turned aside 80 of 85 shots over those contests. Scott Darling holds the starting job, but he's been somewhat shaky lately so there is a chance that Ward could see his role increase in the coming weeks.
Nov 2 - 4:26 PM

Cam Ward allowed two goals on 34 shots in Friday's 2-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

This game was tied at one heading into the third period, but Brayden Schenn scored the game-winning goal for the Blues with just under 10 minutes remaining. The loss drops Ward's record to 1-1-0 on the season. He has a 2.54 goals-against-average and a .941 save percentage in 2017-18.
