TFP first reported on Jan. 15 that Ward would be willing to accept a change of scenery.
Though his salary cap hit is $6.3 million, Ward will earn $6.7 million next season and $6.8 million in 2015-16.
The Hurricanes, who have already re-signed goalie Anton Khudobin, are looking to re-sign netminder Justin Peters. If the Hurricanes are successful in trading Ward, it's believed they do not require a goaltender in return.
Hurricanes GM Ron Francis has been exploring the market on Ward, though it's unclear which teams he has been in contact with.
In limited action this season, Ward posted a 10-12-6 record with the Hurricanes, along with a 3.06 goals-against-average and a .898 save percentage.
