Cam Ward

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.

Ward Expected To Start For Carolina On Thursday

News: Cam Ward is on track to start Thursday's game against the Ducks, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward was the first goalie off the ice Thursday morning, indicating that he is in line to make his 35th start of the season when the Hurricanes take on the Ducks. While Anaheim has 75 points to date -- second in the NHL -- the team has dropped two straight contests, most recently a 6-2 loss to Florida on Tuesday.

Canes' Ward Gives Up Four Goals In Win

News: Cam Ward came away with a win Saturday, stopping 23 of 27 shots against San Jose.
Analysis: While it was a victory for the 30-year-old, Cam Ward didn't play terribly well, allowing four goals for the second time in three outings. His inconsistent season continues, as he now owns a 13-18-4 record with a .913 save percentage and 2.42 GAA. Ward sees the net often, though, so if you can deal with his inconsistencies, he has some fantasy utility.

Ward Going For 'Canes On Saturday

News: Cam Ward will be in net for the Hurricanes on Saturday against the Sharks.
Analysis: After backstopping the Hurricanes to a 2-1 shootout victory over the Coyotes on Thursday, Cam Ward will earn a second straight start for the Hurricanes. It's too early to say that Ward has claimed back the No. 1 job from Anton Khudobin, but if he can keep the clamps on the Sharks in a hostile road environment, it will surely aid his chances. Antti Niemi is expected to serve as the starting goalie for San Jose on Saturday.

Ward Leads 'Canes Past Arizona In Shootout

News: Cam Ward put an end to 28 of 29 shots through 65 minutes, then was perfect on three shootout tries to deliver a 2-1 win over Arizona on Thursday.
Analysis: Strong work by Cam Ward, who snapped a four-game losing streak with this effort. Of course, it came against the sad-sack Coyotes; few matchups will be that easy for Ward even if he owns a bigger share of the starts than Anton Khudobin. Nonetheless, he appeared unbothered by the lower-body injury that had been holding him out of practice.

Canes' Ward Healthy Enough To Start Thursday

News: Cam Ward (lower body) has been confirmed as the starter in the net for Thursday's match against the Coyotes, Chantel McCabe of FOX Sports Carolinas reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward has missed the Hurricanes' last two practices with the lower-body issue, but he alleviated any concern about the injury by logging a full participation during the squad's morning skate Thursday. With no goalie recalled from the minors as a safeguard, it appears Ward can be considered fully healthy. He actually makes for a fairly attractive fantasy option Thursday, as the host Coyotes have been in the midst of a season almost as equally horrid as the Hurricanes. Both teams rank in the league's bottom five in goals per game, which could make for a low-scoring affair.

Canes' Ward Day-To-Day With Lower-Body Injury

News: Cam Ward is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury, and will start in net Thursday if he is determined to be healthy, Michael Smith of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward reportedly has a "tweak in the lower body." He was held out of practice Wednesday with what was deemed a maintenance day, but the injury indicates otherwise, and leaves his status in question for Thursday's contest. If he can't go, the team would probably recall another goaltender as insurance.

Hurricanes' Ward Burned For Four Goals In Loss

News: Cam Ward gave up four goals on 37 shots in Saturday's loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: It was the fourth straight loss for Cam Ward, who drops to 11-18-4 on the season. While Khudobin had one bad outing Friday, Ward's lackluster play Saturday could mean that team goes back to Khudobin for the time being. Ward's .913 is decent, but the Hurricanes don't win much, so Ward is hard to count on in fantasy.

Hurricanes Turn To Ward On Saturday

News: Cam Ward will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Rangers.
Analysis: Cam Ward will essentially be making back-to-back starts, as he replaced Anton Khudobin at the 3:25 mark in the first period and ended up seeing 61:35 of action in the shootout loss. He stopped all 29 shots he faced in regulation and overtime, setting an NHL record for the longest relief appearance by a goalie without allowing a score, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. He'll look to replicate that success against the Rangers, while also aiming to solidify his claim to the No. 1 goalie job.

Canes' Ward Perfect In Relief

News: Cam Ward stopped all 29 shots he faced in relief of Anton Khudobin in Friday's shootout loss to the Blues.
Analysis: While Cam Ward was beat by Kevin Shattenkirk in the shootout, the 30-year-old turned the game around after Khudobin gave up two goals on three shots. Ward has lost three straight games, but could see some more crease time after his strong outing Friday. Kudubin was playing well and has started the team's last four games, but if Ward can built off his performance vs. the Blues, the Canes might use him more often.

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.
