Wed, Nov 16th 8:07am EST
By Roy Widrig

Cam Ward recorded a shutout on Tuesday night versus the visiting San Jose Sharks. Ward stopped 22 shots for his first shutout of the season and 24th of his career.

Fantasy Impact: While the team in front of him isn't great, Ward has been decent so far in 2016-17. He's a solid No. 2 G option but won't contribute much in leagues or contests that count wins.

Carolina netminder Cam Ward made 22 saves, but took the loss by allowing three goals in the 'Canes 3-2 loss to Buffalo on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Ward hasn't made a start in net since March 10th, and especially this late in the season his 2.44 goals against average and 20-16 record should be enough to keep most fantasy owners away unless they are starved for options at goalie.

Fantasy Impact: Ward has been even this season, winning and losing 11 games to go with the four OT losses. He's not much of a fantasy option at this point considering the team he plays on and his middling stats to this point in the season.

Thu, Oct 22nd 9:04am EDT
By Blaine Blontz

Fantasy Impact: This was a bit unexpected, as it was the first start for Ward in which he didn't allow at least two goals. The veteran allowed 11 goals over his last three starts, so owners or those considering Ward hope that he's righted the ship following Wednesday's impressive performance.
