Cam Ward will get his second start in net of the preseason. He made 10 saves on 13 shots in the Canes’ preseason opener against the Columbus Blue Jackets, splitting the game with Alex Nedeljkovic. Peters said he’ll give Ward

The Red team features forwards Eric Staal, Alexander Semin and Jiri Tlusty and defensemen Haydn Fleury and Tim Gleason, among others. Cam Ward and Drew MacIntyre are the goaltenders for Team Red. The White team is highlighted by forwards Elias Lindholm and Jeff Skinner and defensemen

, with a year of vital experience in tow. Andrej Sekera and Justin Faulk are poised to be the backbone of the team’s defense once more. Competition between veterans and young guys knocking on the door should drive the defensive depth to be more than capable.

Among the pieces that Francis and the Canes like is goaltender Cam Ward. After talking to a number of teams about potential trade options, Francis said he elected to retain the 30-year-old who holds a litany of franchise netminding records.
