Aaron Ward Nearing Retirement

from Curtis Zupke of Ducks Blog,

And Ward, like Selanne, seems to be in the twilight of his career. An unrestricted free agent at the end of this season, Ward, 37, can’t help but think about his future.

“When you get to this stage of your career, you let the season end and then you let everything settle and you go from there,” Ward said.

“First off you have to generate interest and then you have to determine whether or not you’re ready to play. At this point I’m ready to play. I’m looking forward to next season.”

Whether that would be with the Ducks remains to be seen as a transition stage looms for the club. Selanne and captain Scott Niedermayer might retire, and the Ducks could use Ward as a mentor for their younger defensemen.

But if Ward retired no would blame him.
