Cam Ward The Backup Goaltender

from Chip Alexander of the New & Observer,

With the coming of Scott Darling, brought in to be the Canes’ No. 1 goalie this season, Ward found himself in a most unusual role. Long the franchise goalie, he was relegated to being the backup as Darling started eight of the Canes’ first 10 games.

In 11 previous full seasons, Ward played in 88 total games in October. This is different.

“There’s no question it has been an adjustment,” Ward said earlier this week. “I’m doing what I can to stay sharp in practice. When you’re not playing as much you have to emphasize more the practices and trying to stay sharp.”
