Ward will be in the net for Saturday's game against the Islanders, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

The Hurricanes elected to rest Ward on Friday against the Capitals so he could be honored in a pregame ceremony for his 500th career appearance in the NHL, which he made in Tuesday's win over the Flyers. Though Anton Khudobin spun his first shutout of the season in Friday's win, Ward won't be bypassed for a start, as he's been quite excellent in his own right of late. Ward has won his last three starts while conceding a total of five goals, though none of the team he faced during that stretch were as strong as the squad he'll match up with Saturday.

That's three wins in a row and five of six now for Ward, who posted the exact same stat line Tuesday that he did in Friday's win over Toronto. He's not exactly a reliable fantasy netminder, but he does go on nice little runs like this sometimes.

The 30-year-old is now 15-19-4 on the season with a .913 save percentage and 2.39 GAA.

Ward is set to man the net for Friday's game against the Maple Leafs, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.Coach Bill Peters has alternated starts between Ward and Anton Khudobin over the last handful of games, and that trend figures to continue over the weekend, as the Hurricanes will play the second half of a back-to-back Saturday in New Jersey. For what it's worth, Ward has been the better of the two goalies of late, but his middling ratios for the season (2.43 GAA, .912 save percentage) don't exactly inspire much confidence on any given night. He'll at least be playable for fantasy owners against a Leafs squad that has won only four of its last 27 games.
