Ward will start against the Golden Knights on Tuesday night, CardiacCane.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran backstop will make his ninth start of the season, and his previous eight outings haven't been spectular with a .906 save percentage and a 3.12 GAA, but he's managed a 4-2-1 record regardless. Vegas has won their last four games and will be at home, where they have only lost two games all season. On the contrary, this is the fifth straight road game for the Canes -- they lost the previous four -- and the second half of a back-to-back, leaving Ward as a low-tier fantasy option Tuesday.

Ward allowed five goals on 33 shots in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to San Jose.

EDGE Analysis

Making his second start in three games, Ward failed to tighten the gap between himself and struggling starter Scott Darling. He blew a 4-1 lead while surrendering two power-play goals and two shorthanded tallies before Brent Burns completed the comeback 22 seconds into overtime.

Ward will be in the crease for Thursday's road tilt versus San Jose.

EDGE Analysis

Ward will be making his second start in three games -- a fact that takes on extra significance considering Scott Darling has lost five of his previous six contests. While it's likely too soon to say Ward will be retaking the No. 1 job in Carolina, if he continues to perform well between the pipes, one has to imagine coach Bill Peters will consider making a change.

Ward made 37 saves in a 3-2 overtime win over Florida.

EDGE Analysis

It was a stark contrast to his last start in Toronto when he was yanked after two periods. Ward is a below-average twinetender who is best utilized as a handcuff to Scott Darling.

Ward will start Saturday's home tilt against the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Ward's appearances in goal have been few and far between so far this season, and for good reason. He's posted just a 3.03 GAA and a .907 save percentage so far this season, letting four past him on 16 shots before being pulled from his last outing against the Maple Leafs. The veteran netminder will look for a better result Saturday against a Panthers squad that tallied just 2.31 goals per game in November.

Ward was pulled from Friday's loss to the Maple Leafs after allowing four goals on 16 shots.

EDGE Analysis

After two excellent performances in his two most recent starts, the veteran netminder turned in a lackluster showing against Toronto. The 33-year-old has only appeared in six games this season, posting a 3-2-0 record with a .907 save percentage. He's been sensational on a few occasions, but it's outings such as what we saw Friday that make him a frustrating fantasy option. Even when he does get a start in place of starter Scott Darling, Ward isn't consistent enough to warrant a start in most fantasy formats.

Ward will tend the goal at home against the Maple Leafs on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

This is perhaps a bit of a surprise, but Ward has played unusually well this year. He has a .922 save percentage through five games, but that's not likely to continue. He hasn't posted a save percentage higher than .910 in his last five seasons.

Ward turned away 27 of 29 shots in Sunday's win over the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

Ward made several highlight-reel saves and put on a clinic in the second period, turning away chance after chance. Aside from a rough outing against Colorado, the veteran has been dynamite when he's gotten the nod this season. Ward has only made five appearances, however, posting a 3-2-0 record with a solid .922 save percentage. Starter Scott Darling has been up-and-down since arriving in Carolina, so Ward could see some more crease time in the near-future following consecutive impressive victories.

Ward will man the crease against the Islanders on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Ward will make his first appearance since Nov. 10 when he picked up a victory over Columbus, allowing just one goal on 26 shots. On the year, the 33-year-old is 2-2-0 with a .920 save percentage and a 2.78 GAA. As far as backups go, Ward is serviceable, but isn't necessarily a great start in fantasy matchups.

Ward stopped 25 of 26 shots during Friday's 3-1 win over Columbus.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran had lost consecutive starts entering Friday, so this stands out as a strong showing, and especially with Columbus boasting a strong offensive attack. Scott Darling projects to continue seeing the lion's share of starts for Carolina, so Ward's fantasy value is extremely limited. He's likely best viewed as a matchup-based streamer in most settings.
