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?
