Canes' Ward Back In Net Thursday

News: Cam Ward (illness) will return to the net Thursday against the Penguins, Chantel McCabe of FOX Sports Carolinas reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward sat out the last five games in favor of Anton Khudobin while battling the flu. The illness never prevented Ward from serving as the backup goalie, but the Hurricanes obviously preferred not to press him into duty while he was less than 100 percent healthy. The Hurricanes had been employing a rough timeshare in goal prior to Ward's absence, and that figures to remain the case yet again, even after Khudobin turned in a handful of quality outings his last few times out. No matter who gets the call on a given night, both Ward and Khudobin will remain low-upside options due to the lack of offensive support they typically receive.

Hurricanes' Ward Returns To Practice

News: Cam Ward (illness) returned to practice Friday, NHL.com's Michael Smith reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward has been healthy enough to serve as a backup, and he may now be ready to actually start. Carolina's next game is scheduled for Saturday against the Rangers.

Canes' Ward Still Feeling Ill

News: Coach Bill Peters relayed Wednesday that Cam Ward (illness) is still feeling sick.
Analysis: Cam Ward was able to serve as the backup goalie during Tuesday's loss to the Senators, but it's clear he's at less than full strength while he works his way back from the illness. He was absent from practice Wednesday, and as a result, Peters announced that Anton Khudobin would make a third straight start in goal for the Hurricanes.

Hurricanes' Ward Under The Weather

News: Cam Ward is under the weather as Tuesday's game against Ottawa approaches, according to NHL.com's Michael Smith.
Analysis: With Cam Ward not feeling well, Anton Khudobin is slated to start Tuesday's contest, with Ward thus a candidate to return to action Thursday against Montreal, health permitting. If Ward's condition fails to improve over the afternoon, the Hurricanes could recall a goalie from AHL Charlotte to serve as Khudobin's understudy Tuesday.

Cam Ward

Canes' Ward To Draw Start Saturday

News: Cam Ward has been confirmed as the starter in goal Saturday against the Panthers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Neither Cam Ward nor Anton Khudobin has played well of late, but coach Bill Peters will turn to his nominal No. 1 goalie with the hope that he can stumble into a decent performance. Ward has been much improved from a season earlier, but is still 18-20-5 with a 2.47 GAA and .909 save percentage over 43 games, making him no better than a middle-of-the-road fantasy option.

Canes' Ward: 20 Saves In Loss

News: Cam Ward made 20 saves in Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Panthers. He allowed just a single goal.
Analysis: It was his best performance of his last five games, but it just wasn't enough. Cam Ward is a long-time removed from his so-called elite years and should be considered a middle-to-low tier option next year.

Cam Ward, G, CAR Canes' Ward In Line To Start Saturday

Cam Ward

Canes' Ward In Line To Start Saturday

News: Cam Ward is in line to start Saturday against the Panthers.
Analysis: The Hurricanes have received sketchy play in the net from both Cam Ward and Anton Khudobin of late, as the team has given up at least three goals in its last six games. Until one of the netminders turns a corner, look for coach Bill Peters to split the starts relatively evenly between the two goalies. Ward should have a decent chance at turning the tide Saturday, as the Panthers' attack isn't especially potent, ranking just 25th in the league in scoring. That being said, Ward's uninspiring performances over his last few outings hardly make him a reliable option.

'Canes, Ward Blow Lead, Lose In Shootout

News: Cam Ward stopped 29 of 32 shots, giving him an identical stat line to opposing netminder Sergei Bobrovsky, but took a 4-3 shootout loss Tuesday against the Jackets.
Analysis: Cam Ward had 2-0 and 3-1 leads, but he gave 'em up, although it's worth noting that all three tallies came with the Jackets on the man advantage. Still, they all count the same in the box score. Ward's given up 14 goals in his last four starts, so things haven't been going well for him lately even though he won two of those games.

Hurricanes Turn To Ward On Tuesday

News: Cam Ward is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward, who backstopped the Hurricanes to a 7-4 win over the Oilers on Sunday, has allowed 11 goals over his last three starts, but overall he has earned wins in five of his last six turns.

Canes' Ward Shaky In Win

News: Cam Ward allowed four goals on 20 shots, but benefitted from his mates' offensive explosion as he picked up a 7-4 win over the Oilers on Sunday.
Analysis: It wasn't his best performance of late, but Cam Ward has won five of his last six starts. He and Anton Khudobin have been rotating starts since the middle of February, so this performance likely won't cause coach Bill Peters to break that pattern. While he has been collecting wins recently, Ward has surrendered 11 goals in his last three, so he's been helped out by a Carolina offense that's heating up lately.

Cam Ward

Canes' Ward To Make Start Sunday

News: Cam Ward will be in the cage for Sunday's game against the Oilers.
Analysis: The announcement isn't a surprising one after Anton Khudobin floundered in Friday's loss to the Wild, yielding three goals on 19 shots. The Hurricanes seem to be embracing a timeshare between Cam Ward and Khudobin at the moment, with neither representing an enticing fantasy option on a consistent basis. For at least Sunday's game, though, Ward could be an intriguing play in daily formats, as the Oilers rank 28th in scoring and will be starting their backup netminder in Richard Bachman.

Canes' Ward Yanked In Loss

News: Cam Ward allowed four goals on 18 shots before being replaced after two periods in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Cam Ward had been on a roll entering Monday's contest, having won four straight and six of his last seven. Though he had seemingly been turning a corner, most of those matchups didn't come against particularly dominating offenses. The loss drops Ward's record to just 17-20-4 on the season.

Canes' Ward In Net Monday

News: Cam Ward will start in net Monday against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Cam Ward has been hot in net lately, winning each of his last four contests between the pipes. He cooled down a bit in his last outing, allowing three goals in the tilt, but still came out victorious. He will have to be up to the task Monday to continue his streak, as he will face one of the most powerful offenses in the league in the Blackhawks.

Carolina's Ward To Get Nod Saturday

News: Cam Ward will be in the net for Saturday's game against the Islanders, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: The Hurricanes elected to rest Cam Ward on Friday against the Capitals so he could be honored in a pregame ceremony for his 500th career appearance in the NHL, which he made in Tuesday's win over the Flyers. Though Anton Khudobin spun his first shutout of the season in Friday's win, Ward won't be bypassed for a start, as he's been quite excellent in his own right of late. Ward has won his last three starts while conceding a total of five goals, though none of the teams he faced during that stretch were as strong as the squad he'll match up with Saturday.

Canes' Ward Gets Fourth Straight Win

News: Cam Ward made 21 saves in a 5-3 win over the Islanders on Saturday night. It's his fourth straight win.
Analysis: Don't look know, but Cam Wardo is warming up. He has won six of his last seven starts and even his loss was a tight one -- he allowed just two goals that game. He could just deliver you some fantasy goodness down the stretch.

Ward's 23 Stops Lead Carolina To Win

News: Cam Ward stopped 23 of 24 shots Tuesday in a 4-1 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: That's three wins in a row and five of six now for Cam Ward, who posted the exact same stat line Tuesday that he did in Friday's win over Toronto. He's not exactly a reliable fantasy netminder, but he does go on nice little runs like this sometimes.

Hurricanes Turn To Ward On Tuesday

News: Cam Ward is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Flyers, Michael Smith of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward, who gave way to Anton Khudobin in Saturday's loss to New Jersey, is thus on track to make his 500th career appearance for the Hurricanes. Ward has won his last two decisions for the team, most recently a 2-1 win over the Leafs this past Friday.

Canes' Ward Expected To Start Tuesday

News: Cam Ward is expected to start Tuesday's game against the Flyers, the Hurricanes' official website reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward is set for his 500th career appearance in a Carolina uniform, which will make him the fourth active goaltender to play that many games for one team. With the Canes out of playoff contention, Ward and Anton Khudobin have traded off starts over the last two weeks.

Canes' Ward Gives Up One Goal In Win

News: Cam Ward stopped 23 of 24 shots in Friday's win over the Leafs.
Analysis: Another solid outing from Cam Ward, who has won four of his last five games. The 30-year-old is now 15-19-4 on the season with a .913 save percentage and 2.39 GAA. If you can deal with inconsistency. the former Conn Smythe winner is a decent fantasy option who can deliver reliable rate stats. It's the Hurricanes, though, so don't expect too many wins.

Canes' Ward Set For Friday Start

News: Cam Ward is set to man the net for Friday's game against the Maple Leafs, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Coach Bill Peters has alternated starts between Cam Ward and Anton Khudobin over the last handful of games, and that trend figures to continue over the weekend, as the Hurricanes will play the second half of a back-to-back Saturday in New Jersey. For what it's worth, Ward has been the better of the two goalies of late, but his middling ratios for the season (2.43 GAA, .912 save percentage) don't exactly inspire much confidence on any given night. He'll at least be playable for fantasy owners against a Leafs squad that has won only four of its last 27 games.

Ward, Hurricanes Roll Past Senators

News: Cam Ward stopped 29 of 32 shots in Monday's 6-3 win over the Senators.
Analysis: Cam Ward has yet to truly separate himself from Anton Khudobin for playing time this season, but he's now won three of his last four and surrendered just two goals in the lone loss in that span. Still, there isn't much of a margin for error and he's just 14-19-4 on the season.

Hurricanes Go With Ward On Monday

News: Cam Ward is slated to start Monday's game against the Senators, according to Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun.
Analysis: Cam Ward, who will square of against Ottawa's Robin Lehner on Monday, thus returns to the Carolina net on the heels of Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Wild, which was started by Anton Khudobin.

Hurricanes Expected To Turn To Ward On Monday

News: Cam Ward appears on track to start Monday's game against the Senators, Michael Smith of hurricanes.nhl.com reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward -- who has 35 starts under his belt to date this season -- is thus in line to get the nod Monday after giving way to Anton Khudobin in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Wild.

Ward Stops 15 As 'Canes Fall

News: Cam Ward faced just 17 shots Thursday, but allowed two goals to take a 2-1 loss to Anaheim.
Analysis: Despite seeing less than half as many shots as his mates put on opposing netminder John Gibson, Cam Ward wasn't able to come away with the win. He's now lost five of his last seven appearances, so his edge on Anton Khudobin for starts has to be slim.

Carolina's Ward Confirmed To Start Thursday

News: Cam Ward has been confirmed as the starter in goal for Thursday's showdown with the Ducks.
Analysis: Cam Ward seems to have usurped Anton Khudobin for the top spot on the Hurricanes' goalie depth chart, as he'll be making his fourth straight turn. While the Hurricanes' 6-2-2 record over its last 10 games belies its last-place standing in the Metropolitan Division, Ward doesn't look like an especially strong play against one of the Western Conference's premier teams. Ward owns a 2-1-1 record and 2.98 GAA for his career against Anaheim.
