Canes' Ward Yanked In Loss

News: Cam Ward was pulled from Friday's game against Vancouver after yielding three goals on 13 shots.
Analysis: Not the best outing for Cam Ward, who has given up at least three goals in three of his last four appearances. The 30-year-old drops to 11-17-3 on the season with a .911 save percentage and 2.45 GAA. While he will continue to see a good workload for the Canes, Ward is expected to give way to Anton Khudobin for the second half of the back-to-back Saturday vs. Ottawa.

Carolina To Start Ward On Friday

News: Cam Ward will be in net for Friday's game against the Canucks.
Analysis: Cam Ward enters Friday's tilt with respectable ratios (2.40 GAA, .913 save percentage), but an anemic Hurricanes attack has led him to just 11 wins in his 30 outings. He'll likely have a tough time slowing the battle-tested Canucks, who are 24-15-3 on the season.

Four Goals Not Enough For Canes' Ward

News: Cam Ward stopped just 31 of 35 shots in regulation and overtime before falling in a shootout to the Blues on Saturday.
Analysis: Cam Ward couldn't take advantage of the rare occasion in which the Hurricanes offense came through for him, as Vladimir Tarasenko beat him for the game-tying goal with under 14 minutes remaining. The Blues' formidable attack has made goalies superior to Ward look more foolish, but wins come as infrequently as they do for the netminder, he needs to capitalize on occasions like this. His ratios have generally been better than expected this season, but Ward's 11-16-3 record makes him nothing more than a lower-end fantasy option.

Canes' Ward Gets Starting Nod Saturday

News: Cam Ward will be between the pipes Saturday against the Blues, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward has delivered underwhelming outings his last two times out against the Predators and Sabres, but his offense at least picked him up to lead him to a victory against Buffalo. Don't expect him to be nearly as fortunate against the powerful Blues, who have amassed an incredible 20 goals over their last three games.

Ward, 'Canes Roll Sabres

News: Cam Ward stopped 18 of 20 shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over Buffalo.
Analysis: Decent work by Cam Ward, who's allowed two or fewer goals in seven of his last eight starts now, but has just a 3-4-1 record to show for that success. If you keep him benched except when the Hurricanes face the dregs of the league, you can squeeze some decent value out of Ward, but the red-hot Blues -- Carolina's next opponent -- are probably best avoided.

Hurricanes' Ward Lined Up For Thursday Start

News: Cam Ward is set to start Thursday's game against the Sabres, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' website reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward was the first goalie off the ice following the Hurricanes' morning skate, which puts him on track to start Thursday night. He has tallied just three wins since the beginning of December, but he will have a good chance to pick one up Thursday against a Buffalo squad that won just once in its previous 10 games.

Ward, 'Canes Fall To Nashville

News: Cam Ward gave up three goals on 26 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Predators.
Analysis: On paper, his stat line Tuesday was just one goal off opposing starter Pekka Rinne's, but Cam Ward blew 1-0 and 2-1 leads in the third period before coughing up the game-winner with less than five minutes left to play. It's his fifth loss -- and his fourth coming in regulation -- over his last six appearances, although this was the first time in that span that Ward surrendered more than two goals.

Hurricanes' Ward To Start Tuesday

News: Cam Ward will be between the pipes Tuesday against the Predators, Michael Smith of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Anton Khudobin was originally expected to start, but instead Cam Ward will look to secure wins in back-to-back outings -- he defeated the Flyers on Friday night. While the Hurricanes have struggled as a team of late, Ward has actually been playing quite well, recording a .944 save percentage in his last six games. While his lackluster 10-15-2 record doesn't exactly inspire confidence, Ward is a decent play in leagues that give credit for his solid rate stats.

Hurricanes' Ward Shuts Down Flyers

News: Cam Ward stopped all but one of the 24 shots he faced in Friday's win over the Flyers.
Analysis: A much-needed win for Cam Ward, who had previously lost eight of his last nine games. While he may be piling up the losses, Ward has actually been playing very well of late, recording a .944 save percentage in his last six games. Ward's lackluster 10-15-2 record is more indicative of the team's overall play, as Carolina sits at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, having scored just 75 goals on the season -- fewest in the NHL. Considering he plays almost every game, Ward is a decent fantasy option if your league gives credit for save percentage and goals against.

Cam Ward, G, CAR Hurricanes' Ward Given Friday Start

Cam Ward

Hurricanes' Ward Given Friday Start

News: Cam Ward will make the start in goal Friday against the Flyers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward has lost four straight games for the Hurricanes, despite allowing just two goals in each of those contests. The Carolina offense has evaporated over the past few weeks, requiring Ward to be even sharper than normal just to keep his team competitive. A match with the Flyers should present some opportunities for the Hurricanes' attack, but it's becoming increasingly doubtful that they'll have enough talent to capitalize on those chances. For that reason, Ward remains a shaky fantasy option.

Canes' Ward Allows Two In Loss

News: Cam Ward stopped 37 of the 39 shots he faced in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: Cam Ward turned in a stellar performance Wednesday, but was saddled with his third straight regulation loss after the team in front of him could only churn out one goal. Ward is now 9-15-2 on the season with a .914 save percentage and a 2.39 GAA.

Canes' Ward To Start Wednesday

News: Cam Ward will start Wednesday's game in Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Cam Ward owns a respectable 2.41 GAA and .912 save percentage, but his 9-14-2 record is about what you'd expect. While a contest in Pittsburgh never makes for an easy matchup, the Penguins have struggled over the last few games while dealing with a slew of injuries.

Canes' Ward Has Only 16 Saves In loss

News: Cam Ward only stopped 16 of 18 shots in a 3-1 loss to Montreal on Monday.
Analysis: Cam Ward was outplayed by Carey Price in a game the Canes probably could have won with a little puck luck. Ward is actually having a solid season but wins will still be tough to come by as the team around him isn't very good and could get even worse as the season moves along.

Canes' Ward Starting Monday

News: Cam Ward will start in net Monday against the Canadiens.
Analysis: Cam Ward has lost his last couple starts, but has been playing extremely well lately, with a save percentage over .940 in each of his last three appearances.

Canes' Ward Stops 36 In Loss

News: Cam Ward played well against the high-powered Lightning on Saturday -- stopping 36 of 38 shots -- but it wouldn't be enough as the Hurricanes fell 2-1.
Analysis: There wasn't much else the veteran could do in this one, as Ben Bishop shut down all but one of Carolina's 26 shot attempts. Strangely enough, Cam Ward actually suffered a 2-1 loss to these same Lightning back on Dec. 11 -- and allowed two goals or less in five of his last six appearances -- so he's definitely done his part recently in attempting to pull the Hurricanes out of the basement of the Metropolitan Division. He now owns a 9-13-2 record with a 2.42 GAA and .913 save percentage this season, and probably deserves to start when Carolina takes the ice next Monday against the Canadiens.

Cam Ward

Carolina's Ward To Play Saturday

News: Cam Ward will be in the crease Saturday against the Lightning.
Analysis: He'll square off against the Bolts' Ben Bishop in a rematch of their meeting that occurred just two weeks earlier. Cam Ward took a hard-luck loss in that outing by stopping 25 shots in a 2-1 defeat, and it's difficult to see him drawing much closer than that unless he somehow manages to shut out the powerful Bolts attack. The Hurricanes have been abysmal offensively of late, providing more than two goals in a game just once in their last 12 contests.

Canes' Ward Strong, But Loses Again

News: Cam Ward made 32 saves through overtime, but allowed a shootout goal in a 3-2 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: He earned the game's third star for his efforts. He has just one win in his last six starts and is 1-4-1 in that span. It's tough to roll him in any fantasy format -- the Canes are awful and he just isn't good enough to lift them out of the muck.

Canes' Ward Confirmed As Saturday Starter

News: Coach Bill Peters confirmed that Cam Ward would make the start in goal Saturday against the Rangers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Though Cam Ward will get the call Saturday, don't be surprised if he's rested when the Hurricanes and Rangers get together in New York on Sunday. That start will likely go to backup Anton Khudobin, who has yet to record a win in his nine starts this season.

Canes Expected To Start Ward On Saturday

News: Cam Ward is expected to be the starter in goal for Saturday's home tilt with the Rangers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward was the first goalie off the ice at the Hurricanes' morning skate and appears in line to get the nod for what would be his 23rd appearance of the season. Quite surprisingly, Ward (2.47 GAA, .909 save percentage) has posted numbers similar to opposing goalie Henrik Lundqvist (2.49 GAA, .912 save percentage), who is generally considered one of the league's best netminders. Unfortunately for Ward, he hasn't gotten nearly as much offensive support as Lundqvist, which is reflected in the stark difference in their win-loss records.

Ward, 'Canes Quiet Leafs

News: Cam Ward stopped 25 shots in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: The Leafs came into the game sporting the NHL's best offense, so it's quite an accomplishment for Cam Ward and the Hurricanes to step up and silence that Toronto attack. Unfortunately, Ward hasn't been able to maintain such a high level of play consistently -- Thursday's victory ended a four-game losing streak in which he'd posted three save marks of .875 or worse. Ward remains an unreliable, though surprisingly not terribly blowup-prone fantasy option in net.

Hurricanes' Ward Gets Thursday Nod

News: Cam Ward will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Cam Ward will be looking to get back in the win column after losing four straight starts. That certainly will not come easy, however, with Carolina taking on a Toronto squad that currently leads the league with 3.45 goals per game.

Canes' Ward Stuck With Four Goals

News: Cam Ward was beaten four times on 29 shots in Tuesday's loss to Montreal.
Analysis: It's been tough times for Cam Ward lately, as he's lost four straight games and the 'Canes have supported him with exactly one goal in each of them. It can't just be chalked up to the lack of offense, though, as Ward has posted sub-.900 save marks in three of those four contests.

Hurricanes' Ward In Line For Tuesday Start

News: Cam Ward is on track to start Tuesday's game against the Canadiens, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' website reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward was the first goalie off the ice following Tuesday's morning skate, which lines him up to start Tuesday night. He will take on a Montreal squad that tallied nine goals over its last two games -- both victories -- after a stretch that saw them lose six of seven contests.

Canes' Ward Saves 25, Takes Loss To Tampa

News: Cam Ward delivered a solid game against the Lightning on Thursday, putting a stop to 25 of 27 shots, but ended up with a 2-1 loss.
Analysis: A tough one for Cam Ward, who had dueling shutouts going with Evgeni Nabokov entering the third period and appeared to be heading for at least an overtime point until Nikita Kucherov's goal with 31 seconds remaining untied it. Ward's all-too-brief hot streak now feels like it was a long time ago, as he's lost six of his last eight starts despite generally decent play.

'Canes Likely To Start Ward On Thursday

News: Cam Ward was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and will likely be in net Thursday versus the Lightning.
Analysis: Though he's played poorly in back-to-back losses for the Hurricanes, Cam Ward has generally been a stable force for the team in goal this season, delivering a 2.49 GAA and .908 save percentage over 19 outings. Those aren't especially impressive numbers, and he's not receiving much goal support, but Ward's standing as the Hurricanes' clear No. 1 will at least allow him to pile up counting stats for fantasy owners.
