    Hurricanes' Cam Ward: Suffers tough-luck loss Sunday

    Ward denied 33 of 34 shots in Sunday's loss to the Canadiens. It was a valiant effort for Ward, as he also turned aside the first four attempts in the shootout, but the offense in front of him fell flat after scoring in the opening minutes of the contest. The 31-year-old has now appeared in net twice since being activated off the injured reserve with a concussion and has stopped 33 shots in each game, so the time off doesn't seem to be effecting him.

    Hurricanes' Cam Ward: In goal Sunday

    Ward is set to start Sunday's contest against the Canadiens, J-F Chaumont of le Journal de Montreal reports. Ward stopped 33 of the 36 shots he faced to earn his 15th victory of the campaign Friday against the Jets, and he'll return between the pipes again Sunday after a day of rest. It could be another challenging outing Sunday, as the netminder will square off against a Canadiens club scoring 3.00 goals per game over three February contests.

    Hurricanes' Cam Ward: Hangs on to beat Winnipeg on Friday

    Ward turned aside 33 of 36 shots in a 5-3 win over the Jets on Friday. Despite allowing three unanswered goals, Ward held on as the benefactor of an offensive explosion by the Hurricanes, who gave him four goals of support in the first 10:04 of the game. He's now 15-11-0 in 33 appearances this season with a .905 save percentage and 2.43 GAA -- which is notably better than his career mark of 2.71 -- and makes for a respectable play in deeper leagues as a third or fourth goaltender.

    Hurricanes' Cam Ward: Scheduled between pipes Friday

    Ward will start in net Friday night against the Jets, who are hosting the contest. Ward was activated from injured reserve before the All-Star break, suggesting that he's over a concussion that had kept him out since Jan. 15. Ward has posted a 2.42 GAA and .905 save percentage in 32 games this season, ranking no better than 21st in the league in either rate category.

    Hurricanes' Cam Ward: Activated from injured reserve

    Ward (concussion) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday, the team's official site reports. It was previously thought that Ward would not be activated until after the All-Star break, so this comes as a pleasant surprise. Look for him to be back in net shortly for the Canes, possibly as soon as Wednesday's game in Calgary.

    Hurricanes' Cam Ward: Return likely comes after All-Star break

    Ward (concussion) skated before Monday's practice, but left early and coach Bill Peters indicated that he's not expected to return until after the All-Star break, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports. Ward's concussion landed him on injured reserve Jan. 20, and it appears the issue will hold him out through the All-Star break at a minimum. An extended break should do the netminder good, with his next chance to return now coming Feb. 3 against the Flames barring a wild swing before Tuesday's game.

    Hurricanes' Cam Ward: Lands on IR with concussion

    Ward is dealing with a concussion and has been placed on injured reserve as a result. Ward expressed concern about neck soreness ahead of his start against the Canucks, but the 31-year-old backstop lasted through overtime in that game and logged 63:25 of ice time between the pipes. With Ward now on injured reserve and concussed, the Hurricanes have recalled Daniel Altshuller from AHL Charlotte. Meanwhile, Eddie Lack becomes the interim starter for Carolina.

    Hurricanes' Cam Ward: Mediocre in loss Friday

    Ward (neck soreness) was able to play Friday, but lost in overtime 3-2 after allowing three goals on 22 shots to Vancouver. The loss snaps a three-game winning streak for Ward, who was beaten twice by the Canucks' Bo Horvat on Friday. Despite having played a hearty 32 games this year, it's tough to place much confidence in the veteran netminder, as he owns dismal ratios (.905 save percentage, 2.41 GAA) on a Carolina team that's 23rd in the league with 2.41 goals for per game.

    Hurricanes' Cam Ward: Tentatively penciled in as starter Friday

    Ward is dealing with neck soreness but will start against the Canucks on Friday, barring discomfort in pregame warmups, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports. According to the report, Ward is feeling the effects of a Phil Kessel shot that caused his mask to fall off Tuesday against the Penguins. It sounds like he will try to give it a go, but conservative fantasy players might want to seek alternatives in case Ward doesn't look ready during warmups. Eddie Lack is the No. 2 netminder for Carolina.

    Hurricanes' Cam Ward: Stops 23, wins third straight

    Ward turned away 23 of 25 shots Tuesday in a 3-2 overtime win against the Penguins -- his third consecutive win. Ward's been putting in plenty of overtime lately -- three of his last four starts have gone to the extra frame -- but he's also been playing very well overall. The 31-year-old netminder has stopped 217 of 232 shots (a .935 save mark) over the course of his last nine games, representing quite a turnaround from the subpar results fantasy owners have grown accustomed to seeing from Ward. Unfortunately, he's rarely been able to maintain this sort of level in the course of his career, so it's just a matter of time until the other shoe drops.
