Cam Ward will start in goal for Canada in Tuesday's
4:30 p.m. matchup with the United States at the IIHF world championship, head
coach Ken Hitchcock announced Monday.


Ward stopped 22 shots in Friday's 5-1 win over
Slovenia. Former Halifax Mooseheads goaltender Pascal Leclaire made a bid for
the starting gig on Sunday, when he posted a 30-save shutout in a 7-0 victory
over Latvia and earned player-of-the-game honours.
