Ward (shoulder) is on the list of available players for Wednesday's expansion draft, TSN reports.

The Sharks were willing to gamble on Ward not being selected given his age and the fact that he has just one year remaining on his contract. Some of the other names available to the Golden Knights from San Jose may be more attractive, but the team's roster is aging, so some of the better names are veterans. Ward could be one of the candidates to hear his name called Thursday, but he's not necessarily the top candidate to go.
