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.
