Predators Sign Free-Agent Forward Joel Ward
Nashville, Tenn. (July 14, 2008) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with free-agent forward Joel Ward. The contract will pay him $500,000 at the NHL level and $70,000 at the AHL level.

Ward, 27 (12/2/80), posted AHL career highs in games played (79), goals (21), assists (20) and points (41) in 2007-08 with the Houston Aeros, Minnesota’s primary developmental affiliate. In addition to 209 games (38g-48a-86pts) with the Aeros since 2005-06, the 6-2, 205-pound right wing appeared in 11 games with the Wild in 2006-07, posting one assist.

Prior to signing his first pro contract with Minnesota, Ward, a native of Toronto, Ont., spent four seasons at the University of Prince Edward Island, where he notched 135 points (76g-76a) in 96 games from 2001-05, earning conference MVP, CIS All-Canadian and CIS Most Sportsmanlike Player honors as a senior in 2004-05. He is one of just three U.P.E.I. Panther alumni to have appeared in an NHL contest.
