Description: The Washington Capitals have signed Joel Ward to a four-year contract worth $12 million. The Capitals have also signed Roman Hamrlik to a two-year contract worth $7 million. TSN
Insight: Ward hiked up his value with a stellar playoff scoring run (13 points in 12 games), although he probably won't be more than a second-line scorer on a loaded Capitals' offense. Hamrlik should provide the Caps with much-needed blueline experience.

Description: Joel Ward scored two goals and added an assist with a +3 in the Predators' 4-3 win over Vancouver in Game 5 on Saturday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Ward has turned into one of the true sleepers of this season's playoffs. His seven goals in the playoffs ties him with another surprise player, Sean Bergenheim, for the playoff lead in goals. Ward seems to have great hands and a nose for the net, so it's difficult to believe that he only scored ten goals during the regular season.

3/13/2011 2:07:00 AM
Description: Joel Ward scored a goal and added an assist in 20 minutes of icetime in the Predators' 4-2 win over Colorado on Saturday. Yahoo Sports
