Ward (shoulder) took part in Friday's training camp session, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Ward appears to be ready for the upcoming season after having his shoulder surgically repaired in the offseason. This ailment had plagued him throughout the 2016-17 campaign, but with the winger now healthy, he could be tasked with an increased role following the departure of Patrick Marleau. The 36-year-old failed to break the 30-point barrier for the first time since the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season last year, so Sharks fans and fantasy owners alike will hope that proves to be an outlier and not the new normal for Ward.
