Ward Assigned to Charlotte on Conditioning Stint
The goaltender will join the Checkers in Cleveland to face the Lake Erie Monsters.
RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has removed goaltender Cam Ward from injured reserve and assigned him to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL) for a conditioning stint. Ward will join the Checkers in Cleveland as they face the Lake Erie Monsters on Friday at Quicken Loans Arena.

Ward, 29, has missed the Hurricanes last 13 games with a lower-body injury. The Saskatoon, Sask., native has posted a 6-7-5 record, a 3.15 goals-against average and an .895 save percentage in 19 games with Carolina this season. Ward (6’1”, 185 lbs.) is the Hurricanes franchise’s all-time leader in games played by a goaltender (450), wins (220) and shutouts (21). His last AHL stint was in December 2005, when he played two games with the Lowell Lock Monsters during a conditioning stint. The Hurricanes drafted Ward in the first round, 25th overall, in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
