Lance Ward (born June 2, 1978, in Lloydminstermarker, Albertamarker) is a Canadianmarker professional ice hockey defenceman, currently with HV71 in the Swedish elite league Elitserien.

Playing career

Ward was originally drafted 10th overall by the New Jersey Devils in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft, but he re-entered the draft and was selected 63rd overall by the Florida Panthers in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. Ward has played 209 career NHL games, scoring 4 goals and 12 assists for 16 points, and 391 penalty minutes. During the 2004–05 NHL lockout Ward did not play.

Ward signed a one-year contract on June 5, 2006, with the Swedishmarker Elitserien club HV71 from Jönköpingmarker. On February 20, 2007, in a game against Färjestads BK, Ward broke both HV71's club record and the Elitserien record for most penalty minutes in one season when he checked one player into the boards and seconds later speared another in front of the crease. The sequence ended with Ward being penalized with 7 minutes plus game misconduct (adding another 20 minutes).

During the off-season 2007–08, Ward turned down a contract extension from HV71 to instead sign a two-year deal with the Austrianmarker club Graz 99ers. In June, 2007, Graz revoked the contract and stated they will not pay Ward the amount settled in the signing. Ward returned to Sweden and re-signed with HV71 for another year.

After winning the Elitserien playoff finals with HV71 in 2008, Ward signed with the Germanmarker DEL team Frankfurt Lions. After one season with Frankfurt, he signed a contract with HV71 for season 2009–10 and 2010–11 in January 2009.
