Ward will start between the pipes Saturday against the visiting Blues, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.

Ward will return to the cage for the fifth time in as many games for the Blackhawks this season. While the outcome of Thursday's tilt against the Wild didn't favor the veteran, Ward played arguably his best game of the season, setting aside 42 of 46 shots. With a Blues club on deck that fires 34.7 shots on goal per game, he may have a heavy workload on tap again Saturday.
