The Montreal Canadiens have invited veteran forward Joel Ward to their training camp on a professional tryout basis, the club announced on Friday.

Ward, 37, is coming off the worst season of his career. He recorded just five goals and seven assists over 52 games during the 2017-18 season with the San Jose Sharks.

Known as a proven playoff performer (22 goals and 52 points in 83 postseason games), Ward brings 726 regular-season games of NHL experience to the table.
