The 32-year-old has been well below average lately, though, compiling a 4-7-1 record, 3.78 GAA and an .871 save percentage in 12 starts since Jan. 14.
|Feb. 20 10:34 PM PT11:34 PM MT12:34 AM CT1:34 AM ET6:34 GMT14:34 11:34 PM MST1:34 AM EST10:34 UAE1:34 ETNaN:� BRT - Ward allowed four goals on 24 shots before being pulled midway through the third period of Sunday's loss to Toronto.

|Feb. 17 6:58 PM PT7:58 PM MT8:58 PM CT9:58 PM ET2:58 GMT10:58 7:58 PM MST9:58 PM EST6:58 UAE (+1)21:58 ETNaN:� BRT - Ward stopped 35 of 37 shots in Friday's 2-1 OT loss to the Avalanche.

|Jan. 21 7:18 AM PT8:18 AM MT9:18 AM CT10:18 AM ET15:18 GMT23:18 8:18 AM MST10:18 AM EST19:18 UAE10:18 ETNaN:� BRT - Ward's recent struggles continued when he was tagged for seven goals on 41 shots in Friday's loss to Pittsburgh.

On the positive side, Ward had won four consecutive starts prior to losing his last two. The 32-year-old may receive a much-needed rest when the Hurricanes visit Columbus on Saturday.
|Jan. 17 6:11 PM PT7:11 PM MT8:11 PM CT9:11 PM ET2:11 GMT10:11 7:11 PM MST9:11 PM EST6:11 UAE (+1)21:11 ETNaN:� BRT - Ward allowed all four Blue Jackets' goals and was lifted in the second period of Tuesday's 4-1 loss to snap a four-start winning streak.

Analysis: Ward has won four consecutive starts, posting a 2.98 GAA in that span. Coach Bill Peters said backup Eddie Lack is close to returning from a concussion, so Ward could get a rest soon.
|Jan. 14 7:32 AM PT8:32 AM MT9:32 AM CT10:32 AM ET15:32 GMT23:32 8:32 AM MST10:32 AM EST19:32 UAE10:32 ETNaN:� BRT - Ward stopped 36 shots while playing in his 600th NHL game in Friday's 5-2 win over Buffalo.

|Jan. 9 5:42 AM PT6:42 AM MT7:42 AM CT8:42 AM ET13:42 GMT21:42 6:42 AM MST8:42 AM EST17:42 UAE8:42 ETNaN:� BRT - Ward stopped 32 shots to help the Hurricanes to Sunday's 4-3 overtime victory over Boston.
Analysis: Ward is quietly having a nice bounce-back season, as his 2.28 goals-against average is the lowest of his 12-year career and his .915 save percentage is his highest since 2011-12. The 32-year-old isn't a top-tier fantasy goaltender but is worth using in the right matchup.
|Jan. 4 9:33 AM PT10:33 AM MT11:33 AM CT12:33 PM ET17:33 GMT1:33 10:33 AM MST12:33 PM EST21:33 UAE12:33 ETNaN:� BRT - Ward turned aside just 15 of 17 shots in Tuesday's loss to the Devils.

|Dec. 31 8:44 AM PT9:44 AM MT10:44 AM CT11:44 AM ET16:44 GMT0:44 9:44 AM MST11:44 AM EST20:44 UAE11:44 ETNaN:� BRT - Ward made 27 saves in Carolina's 3-2 win over the Blackhawks on Friday.
Analysis: Ward improved to 4-1-0 with a 1.77 GAA in his last five games and is 8-0-1 with a 1.55 GAA in his last 10 at home. The Hurricanes visit Tampa Bay on New Year's Eve, and it's uncertain if Ward will be in goal in the second half of a back-to-back. However, he has posted a 1.28 GAA in winning his only three starts on zero days' rest this season. The veteran also stopped 30 shots in a 1-0 OT home win over the Lightning on Dec. 4.

|Dec. 5 9:16 AM PT10:16 AM MT11:16 AM CT12:16 PM ET17:16 GMT1:16 10:16 AM MST12:16 PM EST21:16 UAE12:16 ETNaN:� BRT - Ward had 30 saves in his 25th career shutout in the Hurricanes' 1-0 overtime win over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Analysis: The veteran had began November on a strong run, turning aside 94 of 100 chances over his first three starts of the month. Ward's overall numbers remain rather pedestrian, though, as he's posted a 2.95 goals-against average and .897 save percentage in nine starts.
|Nov. 8 6:42 PM PT7:42 PM MT8:42 PM CT9:42 PM ET2:42 GMT10:42 7:42 PM MST9:42 PM EST6:42 UAE (+1)21:42 ETNaN:� BRT - Ward was very good for the third straight start, making 39 saves in a 3-2 shootout loss Tuesday at New Jersey.

Analysis: This was easily one of Ward's better performances of the season, as he had allowed four or more goals in three of his first five starts. He's still won just once so far and isn't the most appealing of fantasy options at the goaltender position.

Analysis: Ward's days as a top-level goaltender are well behind him, and he's recorded a save percentage of under 90 percent in four of his five starts. The 32-year-old isn't a recommended play for fantasy purposes most nights.
|Oct. 29 7:32 AM PT8:32 AM MT9:32 AM CT10:32 AM ET14:32 GMT22:32 7:32 AM MST9:32 AM EST18:32 UAE10:32 ETNaN:� BRT - Ward recorded his first win of the season after stopping 28 shots in Carolina's 3-2 victory over the Rangers on Friday.
Analysis: A much-needed sharp effort from the veteran goaltender, who entered the matchup 0-2-1 with a poor 4.03 goals-against average and .848 save percentage over his first three starts. Ward should keep splitting work with Eddie Lack, making neither an appealing fantasy option.
|Oct. 19 9:59 AM PT10:59 AM MT11:59 AM CT12:59 PM ET16:59 GMT0:59 9:59 AM MST11:59 AM EST20:59 UAE12:59 ETNaN:� BRT - Ward returned to Carolina's net on Tuesday and made 25 saves in a 3-2 loss at Edmonton.

|Oct. 14 9:12 AM PT10:12 AM MT11:12 AM CT12:12 PM ET16:12 GMT0:12 9:12 AM MST11:12 AM EST20:12 UAE12:12 ET13:12 BRT - Ward had a rough season debut Thursday, making just 21 saves in a 5-4 overtime loss at Winnipeg.
Analysis: Ward could be in for more problems if he starts Carolina's next game because it comes Sunday in Vancouver. He's 2-5-2 with a 3.33 goals-against average against the Canucks, including losses in all four of his starts in Vancouver with a 3.98 GAA.
