RALEIGH, N.C. –¬†Injured goaltender Cam Ward skated this morning at PNC Arena (video above). As you’ll recall, he went down with a knee injury on Mar. 4 in a game against the Panthers and has been on the injured reserve ever since.

Whether or not Ward will be able to return this season remains uncertain.

The Canes will take on the Penguins tonight here in Raleigh. Dan Ellis will get the start for Carolina; Fleury will go for Pittsburgh.
