Ward will guard the cage in Saturday's road game against the Predators, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ward has struggled in limited action this campaign, compiling a 4-2-4 record while maintaining a sub-par 3.90 GAA and .890 save percentage through 11 appearances. The 34-year-old netminder will look to start righting the ship in a road matchup with a Predators club that's averaging 3.07 goals per game at home this campaign, 22nd in the NHL.

Ward will be in the cage against host Florida on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Ward reportedly will be countered by James Reimer in this battle of the backups. The former will patrol the crease for just the third time in November, squaring off against a Panthers team with the fewest amount of points (19) in the Eastern Conference standings. Chicago hasn't fared much better in the West, though, sitting at 19 points due to an underwhelming 8-10-5 record.

Ward allowed three goals on 40 shots in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

Ward's normal utility is to provide Corey Crawford with relief when the Blackhawks play back-to-back games, but the team gave him a road start against against a team he won the Stanley Cup for in 2006. The veteran netminder played excellent, but it wasn't enough to secure the victory as Sebastian Aho scored 76 seconds into overtime. Ward has struggled to a 3-2-4 record and sports a .887 save percentage.

EDGE Analysis

Ward has struggled in limited action this campaign, compiling a 3-1-3 record while posting an ugly 3.92 GAA and .889 save percentage in seven appearances.

Ward allowed five goals on 54 shots in a 6-3 loss to the Lightning on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Most of the damage to Ward was done in the second period, where Tampa Bay scored three goals on a ridiculous 33 shots, an NHL record for most shots on goal in one period. It obviously wasn't the cleanest outing, but having to face 54 shots rarely yields positive results. Chicago has three games in four days schedule later this week and Ward should be expected to start at least one of those.

Ward will be stationed between the pipes for Sunday's home tilt against the Lightning, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ward will start between the pipes Saturday against the Blues, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ward will return to the cage for the fifth time in as many games for the Blackhawks this season. While the result of his last game didn't show it, Ward played arguably his best game of the season Thursday against the Wild, setting aside 42 of the 46 shots he faced. With a Blues club on deck that fires 34.7 shots on goal per game, he may have a heavy workload on tap again Saturday.

Ward will start in goal versus the Wild in Minnesota on Thursday, John Dietz of the Daily Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Filling in for the injured Corey Crawford (concussion), Ward has picked up two wins through his first three starts, with each game having gone into overtime. The veteran puck plugger can't possibly expect his team to continue averaging five goals per contest, and Ward must round into form pronto considering he's currently working with a 4.62 GAA and .843 save percentage. It's not all on Ward, as the Blackhawks do have a few young blueliners learning on the fly, but the ex-Hurricane is at least testing the patience of his fantasy owners early on.
