Staal, Ward to Attend Canadian Olympic Camp

RALEIGH, NC—Hockey Canada today announced the roster for its Men’s Olympic Orientation Camp, which will be held in Calgary, Alb., from Aug. 24-27. Carolina Hurricanes center Eric Staal and goaltender Cam Ward, were among 46 players named to participate in the camp, which is a prelude to the Winter Olympic Games to be held in Vancouver, B.C., in February and March 2010.

Staal, 24, completed his fifth NHL season in 2008-09, scoring a team-high 40 goals and earning 35 assists (75 points) while playing in all 82 of the team’s regular-season games. The Thunder Bay, Ont., native led all Carolina skaters with 10 goals and 15 points in the team’s 18-game playoff run to the Eastern Conference Finals. Staal (6’4”, 205 lbs.) has scored 164 goals and earned 194 assists (358 points) in 409 career regular-season games since being drafted by the Hurricanes in the first round, second overall, in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. He was a member of the “taxi squad” of reserve players for Team Canada at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games in Torino, Italy.

Ward, 25, completed his fourth NHL season in 2008-09, posting a 39-23-5 record, a 2.44 goals-against average and a .916 save percentage in 68 games played. His 39 wins ranked third in the NHL and broke the franchise record for wins in a season by a goaltender. In the playoffs, Ward posted an 8-10 record, a 2.67 goals-against average and a .915 save percentage in helping Carolina to reach the Eastern Conference Finals. The Saskatoon, Sask., native ranks second in Carolina franchise history with 120 wins in 225 regular-season games played. Ward (6’1”, 200 lbs.) won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoffs most valuable player in 2006, leading the Hurricanes to the Stanley Cup championship. The Hurricanes drafted Ward in the first round, 25th overall, in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
