Ward Gives Up Five, 'Canes Lose Again

News: Cam Ward, making his first start since Oct. 14, allowed five goals on 24 shots in Thursday's loss to the Flames.
Analysis: Another poor effort from Cam Ward, who's now given up five goals twice in his three outings this year and hasn't posted a save percentage higher than .885 in an outing. It looks like the decline that he's been going through over the last few seasons is here to stay.

Canes' Ward Returns To Net Thursday

News: Cam Ward will be back in the net Thursday against the Flames.
Analysis: After Anton Khudobin played respectably in the Hurricanes' last two games against the Rangers and Jets, Cam Ward may need a strong showing of his own Thursday to ensure that a timeshare remains in place. Ward, who hasn't played since Oct. 14, was terrible in his first two turns of the season, posting a horrendous .846 save percentage in losses to the Islanders and Sabres.

Ward, 'Canes Fall To Sabres In Shootout

News: Cam Ward surrendered three goals on 26 shots and was stuck with a loss after a lengthy shootout Tuesday against Buffalo.
Analysis: It doesn't look good on any goalie to take a loss to these Sabres, who'd fallen in regulation in their first three games this year. Cam Ward hasn't been good in either of his starts this year, but Anton Khudobin wasn't good in his first start either. The Hurricanes will likely turn back to Khudobin against the Rangers on Thursday, and if Khudobin plays well, it wouldn't be all that surprising to see him displace Ward over the next few games.

Hurricanes' Ward To Get Nod Tuesday

News: Cam Ward is in line to start Tuesday's game against the Sabres, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' website reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward worked in the starter's net during Tuesday's morning skate, indicating he will be in goal for Tuesday's matchup with Buffalo. Ward will look to get back on track after giving up five goals on just 26 shots in the Hurricanes' season-opening loss to the Islanders.

Canes' Ward Surrenders Five Goals In Loss

News: Cam Ward gave up five goals on 26 shots in Friday's loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: Not a good start for Cam Ward, who is expected to split goaltending duties this season with Anton Khudobin. It's hard to count on Ward too much in fantasy nowadays, especially considering the team in front of him is currently without two of their best players in Jordan Staal (leg) and Jeff Skinner (concussion). If Ward continues to struggle, Khodobin could win over the coveted starting gig.

Carolina Turns To Ward For Opener

News: Cam Ward will be in the net for Friday's season opener against the Islanders.
Analysis: Though Cam Ward will get the Opening Night starting nod, it still look like the Hurricanes will go with a timeshare in goal to start the season, after Anton Khudobin impressed in his 36-game run with Carolina in 2013-14. Ward's previous postseason heroics for the Hurricanes as well as his exorbitant contract will probably afford him more opportunities to nail down the No. 1 job, but if his downturn in performance the last three seasons is any indication, a dramatic bounce-back shouldn't be expected.

Canes' Ward Sees First Preseason Game Action

News: Cam Ward started the Hurricanes' first preseason game Sunday, allowing three goals on 13 shots in a 4-3 loss to Columbus. He played roughly half the game, giving way to junior prospect Alex Nedeljkovic in the second period.
Analysis: The good news is, all three goals came on quality shots by the Jackets, and Cam Ward earned a positive review from his coach, Bill Peters. "I thought ‘Wardo' was good," Peters said. "On the goals we gave up, there's nothing the goalies can do. We've got to be better defensively than that." Overall, this was probably not the preseason start Ward was looking for, but it doesn't sound like it has hurt his chances at starting the season as the Canes' No. 1 goalie. In the meantime, however, Anton Khudobin will get a look in the Canes' second preseason scrimmage Tuesday against the Sabres.

Canes' Ward To Battle For Top Job This Season

News: Cam Ward says he worked on his physical conditioning this summer and changed his diet, with an eye towards earning back the No. 1 goaltening job for the Hurricanes this season, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports. "Every summer you learn new things," Ward said. "For me, I became addicted to watching what I eat and looking for ways to improve my weight training. I focused a little more on strength and growing the muscles and I feel a lot stronger physically."
Analysis: Cam Ward suffered an assortment of injuries last season and wound up posting a disappointing 10-12-6 record along with a dismal 3.06 GAA and .898 save percentage. In his place, Anton Khudobin wound up posting excellent numbers (19-14-1, 2.36, .926) and eventually surpassed Ward as the team's everyday starter. The good news is, despite offseason trade and buyout rumors, Ward looks to open the upcoming season in at least a time-share with Khudobin for the starter's gig. However, if he falters, don't be surprised if Ward is once again relegated to the backup role at some point as the season progresses.

Canes Expected To Hang On To Ward

News: Cam Ward will likely remain in Carolina next season, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward started 28 games for the Canes in 2013-14, recording a 3.06 GAA and .898 save percentage. His name had been the subject of several trade and buyout negotiations, but it appears Carolina has had a change of heart. Barring the unexpected, Ward would likely be the team's No. 1 goaltender next season if he remains in town.

Ward Strong In Canes' Win

News: Cam Ward stopped all but one of the 28 shots he faced in Friday's 2-1 win over Detroit, giving him 10 wins on the season.
Analysis: Once one of the most reliable goalies in hockey in terms of games played, Cam Ward has been a victim of injury and inconsistency the last two seasons, essentially ceding the Raleigh crease to Anton Khudobin. Ward reminded people he still can deliver a solid game, as evidenced by his effort Friday. He's not likely to return to the Canes next season as the team's starter, but the veteran will latch on somewhere.

Hurricanes Will Start Ward On Friday

News: Cam Ward (upper body) will be in the net Friday against the Red Wings, Jamie Kellner of Canes Country reports.
Analysis: Much to the chagrin of fantasy players, the Hurricanes didn't announce their goalie until pregame warmups, but it looks like Cam Ward is sufficiently recovered from his upper-body injury and will be ready to play. Even with a solid outing against the Red Wings, the Hurricanes could opt for a buyout of Ward in the offseason, given his exorbitant contract and the excellent play of Anton Khudobin this season.

Canes' Ward Questionable For Thursday

News: Cam Ward is questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Capitals due to an upper body injury, Michael Smith of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward was held out of practice Wednesday to try to get healthy, but the team may opt to hold him out of Thursday's game as well. With Anton Khudobin getting the nod in net for the Canes, Ward's status shouldn't affect too many lineups either way.

Canes' Ward Allows Four In Loss

News: Cam Ward surrendered four goals on 36 shots in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: Cam Ward continues to be a highly unreliable netminder both for fantasy owners and for the Hurricanes, who have a conundrum on their hands with him at this point. It seems Anton Khudobin should be the future in goal for the 'Canes, at least for now. That in mind, they'd surely like to deal Ward in the offseason, but the fact that he's signed for $6.3 million in each of the next two seasons may make it difficult.

Hurricanes Set To Start Ward On Tuesday

News: Cam Ward is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Rangers, according to Michael Smith of NHL.com.
Analysis: Cam Ward, who gets his first turn since March 31, will face a Rangers' squad still clawing for playoff seeding. Meanwhile, the Hurricanes' faint postseason hopes took a major hit with Saturday's loss to New Jersey.

Hurricanes' Ward Lets In One In Loss

News: Cam Ward made 28 saves on 29 shots but took the loss in a shootout Monday against the Senators.
Analysis: A nice start for Cam Ward, despite the loss, but the fact remains that on the season he has a .896 save percentage and 3.11 GAA. Going forward, beyond this season the Hurricanes likely won't expect Ward to remain their starting goalie.

Canes' Ward Starting Monday

News: Cam Ward will start in net Wednesday against the Senators.
Analysis: Cam Ward was pulled from his last outing after allowing three goals on just nine shots against the Islanders. He'll look to turn things around Monday against the Senators.

Canes' Ward Doesn't Last Long Tuesday

News: Cam Ward allowed three goals on nine shots before being yanked just 6:12 into Tuesday's loss to the Isles.
Analysis: Not to excuse Cam Ward allowing three goals in six minutes, but nine shots in six minutes is quite a lot of action. Anton Khudobin replaced him, stopping 21 of 23 in relief as the Hurricanes' rally came up just short.

Hurricanes To Start Ward On Tuesday

News: Cam Ward will start Tuesday's game against the Islanders, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward, who will be making his second start in a row for the Hurricanes, checks in with a 3.09 GAA and .896 save percentage in 26 games overall, but he does have three wins in his last four starts.

Canes' Ward: Third Win in Last Four Starts

News: Cam Ward, who has struggled this season, stood on his head Saturday night in a 3-2 win over the Jets. He has three wins in his last four starts.
Analysis: He made several spectacular saves and those boosted his confidence in a huge way. Maybe this little run of late will help him resurrect a flagging career. Yes, it's gotten to that. He's been hard to trust.

Hurricanes' Ward Draws Start Saturday

News: Cam Ward will be back in the net Saturday vs. the Jets.
Analysis: After surrendering five goals his last time out a week ago, Cam Ward watched Anton Khudobin make three consecutive starts for the Hurricanes. The goalie battle remains hotly contested, but Ward will probably need a good performance here to see regular work in coach Kirk Muller's rotation.

Canes' Ward Surrenders Five To Bruins

News: Cam Ward gave up five goals on 41 shots Saturday as the Canes lost 5-1 to the Bruins.
Analysis: Cam Ward's 36 saves were nice, but five goals against, especially against a potent opponent like the Bruins, simply won't cut it. This poor showing is likely to reignite the goalie debate in Raleigh, with Anton Khudobin itching for his first start in five games. Despite having 222 career wins, the 2006 Stanley Cup winner has only 17 in the last two seasons combined after battling both injuries and inconsistency. Ward is now a dismal 8-11-5 on the year and has been one of the most disappointing fantasy netminders of the season.

Canes Start Ward On Saturday

News: Cam Ward will be in goal for Carolina when they face the Bruins on Saturday, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward is coming off two solid wins against the Rangers and the Sabres in which he's allowed just three goals in total. He'll get another opportunity to lower that 3.06 GAA Saturday.

Hurricanes Expected To Roll With Ward On Saturday

News: Cam Ward is expected to receive the start Saturday vs. the Bruins, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: It's hard to blame coach Kirk Muller if he decides to stick with Cam Ward after he's put together arguably his two best back-to-back starts of the season. He's stopped 45 of 48 shots in wins over the Rangers and Sabres, keeping the Hurricanes on the edge of the playoff race in a competitive Eastern Conference.

Ward Delivers For Carolina

News: Cam Ward stopped all but two of the 23 shots he faced in Thursday's 4-2 win over Buffalo, his second win in as many starts.
Analysis: Cam Ward didn't have to do much considering how Carolina dominated the game in terms of shots on goal (54-23) and faceoff wins (47-17), but he did enough to allow Carolina to win the game. Ward has been playing solid hockey since his name was thrown around on trade deadline day, allowing just four goals in the last three games.

Canes' Ward Confirmed As Thursday Starter

News: Cam Ward led the Hurricanes onto the ice for pregame warmups Thursday, indicating that he will start against the Sabres.
Analysis: As expected, Cam Ward will make a third consecutive start after leading the 'Canes to a 3-1 win over the Rangers on Tuesday.
