Counting down the days until the 2014-15 season with a look at Joel Ward's awesome season.

Paul Frederiksen-USA TODAY Sport

49 - Number of days remaining until the Caps open the 2014-15 season. But it's also...

...the number of points accumulated by Joel Ward in 2013-14, topping his previous career high of 34 which he set back in 2008-09. Ward's 24 goals and 25 assists were both also career highs. 37 of Ward's 49 points were scored at even strength, second-highest on the Caps and just two shy of Alex Ovechkin's team-leading 39 even-strength points.
