Cam Ward sticked aside 31 shots in Carolina’s 5-4 shootout loss to the Blues on Saturday night.

Overall, Ward has surprisingly been pretty good this season. He won’t win you a game on his own, but he seems to be doing a good job keeping the Hurricanes in most of them, this one notwithstanding. He gave up one in the first, two in the second and the game-tying goal in the third. Ward has a 2.40 goals-against average and .913 save percentage this season.

Cam Ward will start against the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.

Ward comes into the contest with a 11-16-2 record with a 2.32 GAA and a .914 save percentage this season. In his last five starts against the Blues since 2012, Ward has won four times while allowing just eight goals. Four of which came during the single loss back in December of 2013.

Despite a lot of speculation, do not expect the Carolina Hurricanes to deal Cam Ward.

Ward has a no-trade contract and GM Ron Francis also stated that the Hurricanes do not have anyone ready in the farm system to take over if Ward is dealt. Ward is 11-16-2 this season with a 2.32 GAA and a .914 save percentage. The Canes would have to get an awful lot to make a potential trade worthwhile.
Jan 10 - 8:23 AM

Cam Ward had an easy night on Thursday, needing just 18 saves to clinch a lopsided victory over the Buffalo Sabres in a 5-2 win.

Ward's record is now 11-16-2 this season with a .914 save percentage and 2.32 goals against average. Ward owners were thrilled with the veteran's 6-5-2 start to the season, but a 5-11-1 record in his past 17 games has weakened the case for the goaltender's re-emergence.

Cam Ward will get the start against the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night.

The Hurricanes have spent much of the year challenging Edmonton for the highest percentage chance at this year's first overall draft pick, and their choice of Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel, or whomever they'd like to select. Tonight is no different, except that the Buffalo Sabres trail close behind in third place. As for Cam Ward, he comes in sporting a respectable .915 GAA and 2.37 save percentage through 26 starts and 28 games so far this season.
Jan 8 - 5:14 PM

Cam Ward and the Hurricanes blew a third period lead Tuesday and eventually fell to Nashville by a score of 3-2.

Ward allowed three goals on 26 shots in the outing and was handed his fourth loss in five starts. His record falls to 10-16-2 in the process, but his 2.37 GAA and .915 save percentage are actually quite respectable. Considering his supporting cast and the fact he cedes quite a few starts to Anton Khudobin, Ward is a low-end fantasy option.
Jan 6 - 11:07 PM

Cam Ward will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

"We have two good goaltenders playing real well right now, but Wardo is our starter. He's our No. 1 guy," coach Bill Peters said. Ward hasn't allowed more than two goals in any of his last six games. He now has a 2.34 GAA and .916 save percentage in 27 contests in 2014-15.
Jan 6 - 2:12 PM

Carolina goaltender Cam Ward made 23 saves to help the Carolina Hurricanes edge the visiting Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 Friday night.

The Canes won for only the third time in a month and scored as many as two goals for just the fourth time in the past 14 games. Ward is now 10-15-2 on the season. Despite playing for a last-place team, Ward's goals-against average is a respectable 2.34. His save percentage is .916. You could do worse than use Ward as your goalie on fantasy nights. He has allowed two goals or fewer in each of his last four starts.

It looks like Cam Ward will be the Carolina Hurricanes' starter on Friday.

Ward was the first goaltender off the ice after the morning skate, which is usually a good way of determining who the starter will be. He has allowed just two goals in each of his last three starts, but has lost all of those contests due to Carolina's lackluster offense.
Jan 2 - 10:56 AM

Cam Ward kicked away 37 of the 39 shots that the Penguins fired at him Wednesday night but the Carolina goalie still came away with a loss as Pittsburgh prevailed 2-1.

Losing tough games to Pittsburgh has become something of a trend for Ward. He's lost his last four games against the Pens but allowed only two goals in all four. Wednesday's loss gave Ward a season record of 9-15-2. His goals-against average is 2.39 and his save percentage is .914. Again, you can't help but wonder how successful Ward would be if he were part of a better team.

Cam Ward will start for the Carolina Hurricanes against Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

Ward has a career 2.37 GAA and .923 save percentage in 22 games versus the Penguins. He's lost his last three contests, but only allowed two goals in each of those three starts.

Carolina goaltender Cam Ward faced only 18 shots but allowed two in the Hurricanes' 3-1 loss to the visiting Montreal Canadiens Monday night.

Ward is on a bad team so his record isn't good. It's 9-14-2. His goals-against average is 2.41 and his save percentage is .912. And you can't help but wonder how much better he'd be if he were the goalie on a team that wasn't in last place.

Cam Ward will start in Monday's game against Montreal.

Ward kicked out 36 of 38 shots on Saturday, but he still ended up with the loss. He has a 2.42 GAA and .913 save percentage in 24 contests in 2014-15.
