  • Sharks' Joel Ward: Collects two points in win over Jets

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/16/17) Ward scored a goal and added an assist during Monday's win over Winnipeg.

    After posting 21 goals and 43 points last year, the second-year Shark has just four goals and 16 points through 42 games this season. It's been a disappointing campaign, and Ward's deservedly been off the fantasy grid. One obvious explanation of his offensive decline is his lack of power-play production. He has failed to register a point with the man advantage after scoring 12 power-play points in 2015-16. Still, this was Ward's third multi-point showing in six games, so perhaps he has a strong finish ahead. It's probably still ill-advised to rely on him in most fantasy settings at this point, though.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Picks up two helpers in victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/8/17) Ward collected a pair of assists in Saturday's win over Detroit.

    Ward has now put put back-to-back multi-point games after managing just one assist in his previous eight outings. The 36-year-old has struggled this season with just three goals and 14 points in 38 games, but hopefully these two games are a sign of what's to come. Ward skates in the bottom-six, but he plays on the power play and has a decent shot, so he could be worth a look in some very deep leagues if he continues to heat up.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Healthy scratch Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/16/16) Ward will not be in the lineup Friday night against the Canadiens, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.

    Ward has really struggled this season, namely in the scoring department. He's found twine only twice on 42 attempts for a 4.8 shooting percentage -- for comparison's sake, he manufactured 21 goals thanks to a 15.2 conversion rate on shots last season. More concerning, his power-play ice time has dropped by nearly two minutes per game, leaving countless fantasy owners in search of more attractive options on the waiver wire.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Dishes out two helpers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/1/16) Ward picked up a pair of assists in a 4-1 win over the Kings on Wednesday. He also skated to a plus-3.

    The points are just the sixth and seventh of the season for the veteran, who is well off the pace of his 43-point campaign from a year ago. At least a portion of Ward's struggles are due to his marked reduction in power-play time, as he's averaged just 0:39 per game compared to last season's 2:32 when he produced a career-high 12 points with the man advantage. The 35-year-old is, however, still clinging to a spot in the top six next to center Logan Couture while averaging over 16 minutes of total ice time, suggesting an uptick in production isn't out of the question given his role and track record.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Flashes speed, craft for shorthanded tally

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/24/16) Ward picked up a shorthanded goal Wednesday in a 2-1 home win over the Blackhawks.

    Sharks forward Chris Tierney broke free after a quick battle along the end boards and made a successful clearing attempt that Ward ended up chasing down. The home fans jumped off their feet after watching Ward fake a slap shot and flick the puck into the twine for his second goal of the season. As exciting as that play was, Ward's only averaging a point every four games along with a minus-1 rating, and fantasy owners simply need more production out of the power forward.
