Regular visitors of Notinhalloffame.com know that we are slowly working on the top 50 of every major team in the NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB. Once that is done, we intend to look at how each team honor their past players, coaches and executives. As such, it is important to us that Cam Ward has become the first person elected to the Carolina Hurricanes Hall of Fame.
Ward was a First Round Pick (25th Overall) in 2002, and debuted for the Canes in 2005, playing for them until 2018. Holding the all-time franchise record in Wins (318) and Shutouts (27), Ward has a Caroina record of 318-244-84 and a GAA of 2.70. Ward backstopped Carolina to their first Stanley Cup in 2006, where he was named the Conn Smythe Award winner as the playoff MVP.
Ward joins Rob Brind’ Amour, Ron Francis and Glen Wesley, who were automatically chosen for the first class. The ceremony will take place on February 16.
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate Cam Ward for earning this prestigious honor.
