It's no longer a secret, the Chicago Blackhawks have solved their backup goalie problems.
According to multiple reports the Blackhawks have reached an agreement with Cam Ward on a one year deal.
There was some speculation about how much he was going to make, with reports going as high as $3million.
It looks like Ward has given the Hawks a bit more breathing room as Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports the deal is actually expected to be worth $2.5million.
This will leave the Hawks with about $7million in cap space and maybe more if they can move Marian Hossa's $5.275million cap hit.
Do you like the Ward signing at $2.5million?
Some news from our pal @reporterchris today on @Sportsnet960. Cam Ward to CHI on 1-year deal, ~$2.5M. Carter Hutton to BUF, details unknown. Jonathan Bernier to DET on a 3-year deal. Sounds like Paul Statsny is going to remain in WPG but they do need to move a bit of money out.
