It was Dec. 16 and Ward was watching his Baltimore Ravens like any other Sunday when Doug Currie, his coach at the University of Prince Edward Island, called. The news was unbelievable: Ward's college teammate and close friend Drew Power had died in a house fire.
"This dedication to the season that he's made, am I surprised? Not at all," said Currie, who now serves in the Legislative Assembly of Prince Edward Island. "And I know it was a real setback for Joel because Drew and Joel had quite a connection and they had a lot of fun together. I'm not surprised. This is so typical of Joel and just his time here in the province of Prince Edward Island and the friendships and the connection that he has made."
Currie said Power was a good police officer because "he could relate to people."
