The Daily Chum: Joel Ward’s jersey retired at University of Prince Edward Island

Nice honor for a great pro. Joel Ward took a long and difficult route to the NHL. He played college hockey at the University of Prince Edward Island before eventually breaking in, albeit briefly, with the Minnesota Wild. From there he went on to Nashville, Washington and now to the Sharks. On Friday, Ward saw his No. 22 raised to the rafters at UPEI as he took part in the second annual hockey hot stove at the Canadian school. You can see some great pictures of the banner, and Ward, below. Shout out to the @UPEIMensHockey for deciding to honor @JRandalWard42 and retiring his number....
