    Sharks' Joel Ward: Dishes out helper in loss

    Ward dished out an assist in Monday's loss to the Senators. Ward helped set up what was the game-tying goal at the time in the third period, but both sides ended up scoring again before the Senators grabbed the contest in a shootout. The 35-year-old has seen his scoring pace slow down after a hot opening two months, but he's still on his way to topping the 40-point plateau for just the second time in his career.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Can't produce in rout

    Ward didn't record a point and just had a single shot in Saturday's 7-0 rout of the Maple Leafs. Ward's torrid pace from the start of the season has not held. Over the last 14 games he has just two goals and four assists. In his first 15 games this season he posted eight goals and six assists. Don't be fooled by his season totals, production has been hard to come by lately.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Nets goal in loss

    Ward registered San Jose's loan goal in a 2-1 defeat Thursday against Detroit. Ward will be relieved to have put an end to his nine game goalless streak. Its been a difficult stretch for the 35-year-old, tallying just four points in his last 10 contests, despite averaging almost 18 minutes of ice time per night. Even though the winger has been ice cold lately, he has been having a productive first season with the Sharks, notching 25 points in 36 outings.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Slump stretches on

    Ward had a minus-3 rating and three shots in Sunday's loss to the Jets. With no points yet again, Ward's slump stretches on. He is without a goal in nine games and has just three assists over that stretch. He's still having a solid year, but it's bringing his numbers back down toward what you expect from him. This may not be the career year Ward was on pace for. At 35, it shouldn't be surprising that he's not going to blow the doors off his personal best marks.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Will return Monday

    Ward is ready to return to the lineup on Monday against the Avalanche, reports Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area. Ward missed the last couple of games with an undisclosed injury after taking a high dirty hit on December 18 against Ottawa. Hopefully he was able to hit the reset button over break. His production on the season has been strong, but he's gone six straight games without a goal. It will help that he'll jump right back onto Patrick Marleau's second line.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Aiming to return Dec. 28

    Ward (undisclosed) indicated that his injury is not long-term and he hopes to return Dec. 28, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports. This rules Ward out for Tuesday's road contest against the Kings, but the resurgent winger is aiming to return for the first game after Christmas break. Ward looks quite comfortable in his first year playing for Team Teal -- he has 10 goals and 13 assists, putting him on pace for 57 points, which would be a career high if he's able to sustain such lofty totals.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Doubtful Tuesday

    Ward (undisclosed) is considered doubtful to play Tuesday against the Kings, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports. Ward was scratched from Sunday's matchup with the Blackhawks with an undisclosed injury. While the team is yet to comment on the matter, Ward is reportedly visiting with a doctor Monday afternoon, and the expectation is he'll miss at least one more game. Following Tuesday's game, the Sharks are off until Monday, so it would make sense to allow Ward more than a full week to recover.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Late scratch Sunday

    Ward was a late scratch Sunday against the Blackhawks due to an undisclosed injury. It's unclear exactly why Ward will miss the contest, but Joonas Donskoi replace him on the second line alongside Matthew Nieto and Patrick Marleau. Ward's next chance to return comes Tuesday against the Kings, but it's also possible the club will take precaution and hold him out through the holiday break.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Continues career pace

    Ward grabbed an assist, a hit and a blocked shot in Tuesday's win over the Habs. Ward, who has 10 goals and 23 points on the season, is on pace to set a career-high mark in points at age 35. He's on pace for 63 points, clearing his career-high of 49 by a good deal. The only real question mark there is whether he can keep the goal pace up. He's not shooting a ton and his 19.6% shooting percentage is over seven percent above his career average, making it unlikely to hold.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Continues to shine offensively

    Ward notched an assist Tuesday night versus the Penguins, extending his points streak to five games. Ward is thriving in his first season donning a teal sweater. He's on pace for 30 goals and 37 assists, which would crush his career high of 49 points set with the Capitals in 2013-14 if he's able to sustain the lofty production. It doesn't stop there, as Ward is averaging 2:17 of ice time on the power play. Considering putting him in your sights if you need help at the winger position.
