  • Sharks' Joel Ward: Made available for expansion draft

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/18/17) 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.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Undergoes successful shoulder surgery

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/19/17) Ward played with a minor shoulder injury this season -- recently electing to have it surgically repaired -- but is expected to be ready for the start of the 2017-18 campaign, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Ward's shoulder injury might help explain why he had something of a down season in 2016-17. While he's never been a truly prolific scorer, the 36-year-old's 29 points this season represent his lowest total since 2011-12 -- if you don't count the 2012-13 campaign, when he played just 39 games. It's also a massive drop-off from last season's 43 points in only one more game played. Ward will look to rehab and mount a comeback season once training camp opens in the fall.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Two assists in Game 4

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/19/17) Ward dished out two helpers in Tuesday's 7-0 Game 4 win over Edmonton.

    Ward's assists came 3:06 apart in the second period. He saw 3:46 of power play time during his team's eight opportunities with the extra man, but all of the veteran winger's production came at even strength. With three points through four games in this series, Ward now has 51 in 81 career postseason appearances.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Gets night off to rest

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/8/17) Ward was a healthy scratch for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Flames, Mark Spector of Sportsnet reports.

    Ward joins Justin Braun, Logan Couture, Tim Heed, Joe Pavelski, Joe Thornton and Joel Ward in the press box as the Sharks are taking no chances with an injury in a meaningless game leading up to the playoffs.

    Sharks' Joel Ward: Stuck in rut

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/29/17) Ward extended his pointless streak to seven games and skated to a minus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Rangers.

    Given Team Teal's high-scoring output, it's a shame that Ward's rating fell on the undesirable side. He's been a huge liability in the defensive zone, going minus-8 over this scoreless stretch. The Sharks and fantasy owners alike depend on the 36-year-old for special-teams contributions, including work on the penalty kill, but he's fading at arguably the worst possible time.
