Cam Ward motivated by Team Canada snub

He wants in on Sochi. “Ive known Cam for a very, very long time,” said Hurricanes captain Eric Staal . “He may say that didnt bother him a lot, but it definitely added some fuel to the fire that was already there.” The way Staal sees it, its a win-win for Ward and for the Hurricanes if he plays well enough to get back into the good graces of Team Canada. That means a lot of Ws for Carolina in the process. And despite not going to Canadas camp last summer, Ward never felt out of the running for a shot at Sochi. “I never looked at it last summer when the camp roster came out that I couldnt make the team anymore,” said Ward. “I looked at it as extra motivation and I know that if I can play like I know I can in the first half of the season, theyll be watching and that Ill be in consideration. Thats my focus. If I make that team, obviously that means the Hurricanes are doing well, too. Thats what Im striving for, thats my goal.” First things first. For Ward, this season is about re-establishing himself and getting back into the swing of things. “For me its about getting the game reps again,” said Ward. “When you include the lockout and then my injury, I was basically sitting for a year.
