11/16/2014 10:13:00 AM
Description: Capitals right wing Joel Ward scored on his one shot on goal against the Blues.
Insight: Ward now has eight goals and two assists this season. Those are decent numbers for the top-line forward in Washington, but Ward has an even rating and two penalty minutes.
 
10/26/2014 10:11:00 AM
Description: Washington right wing Joel Ward recorded two goals and four shots on goal in Saturday's victory over Calgary.
Insight: He now has four goals on the season, and if owners left Ward undrafted, he is a viable waiver candidate, for everyone in need of a goal-scorer.
 
Hot4/10/2014 9:39:00 PM
Description: Washington right wing Joel Ward has produced five points (two goals, three assists) over his last three games.
Insight: The 33-year-old had a goal and two assists Thursday and now has 24 goals and 24 assists (48 points) in 80 games. He never had more than 17 goals, 21 assists or 35 points in a season prior to this one.
 
Hot3/19/2014 10:17:00 AM
Description: Washington right wing Joel Ward scored a goal for the third straight game Tuesday at Anaheim.
Insight: The 33-year-old has set career highs with 21 goals and 41 points in 70 games this season.
 
3/16/2014 7:24:00 PM
Description: Washington right wing Joel Ward collected four points in his last four games and a career-high 40 points in 69 games this season.
Insight: The 33-year-old Ward scored a goal in each of the last two games, giving him a career-high 20 goals.
 
3/14/2014 10:22:00 PM
Description: Washington right wing Joel Ward has a career-high 38 points in 68 games this season.
Insight: Ward scored his 19th goal of the season Friday against the Canucks.
 
2/2/2014 3:55:00 PM
Description: Washington right wing Joel Ward lit the lamp twice in Sunday's win against the Red Wings.
Insight: Ward (17 goals, 16 assists in 56 games) also added an assist. He's now scored in each of his last three games. Sunday marked the veteran's first multi-goal effort of the season.
 
11/1/2013 10:16:00 PM
Description: Capitals right wing Joel Ward earned his first career hat trick Friday in a 7-0 win over Philadelphia.
Insight: He scored two in the second period and one in the third. Ward had just three goals all season before tonight's game. Half of his goals this season have come on the power play.
 
1/20/2013 9:55:00 AM
Description: Washington right wing Joel Ward found the net twice in his season debut Saturday against the Lightning.
Insight: Ward led the team with five shots on goal in 13 and a half minutes of ice time. The 32-year-old's next goal will be the 49th of his career.
 
7/1/2011 4:07:00 PM
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.
 
5/7/2011 11:53:00 PM
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.
 
5/5/2011 11:36:00 PM
Description: Joel Ward scored a goal and added an assist in the Predators' 4-2 loss to Vancouver in Game 4 on Thursday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Ward has been the most consistent option offensively for the Predators in the playoffs. He has scored goals in back-to-back games while posting points in eight of ten games during the playoffs. He currently leads the Preds in playoff scoring with five goals and nine points in ten games.
 
5/4/2011 12:51:00 AM
Description: Joel Ward scored a third-period goal in the Predators' 3-2 overtime loss to Vancouver in Game 3 on Tuesday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Ward, an undrafted player who once played Canadian university hockey in Prince Edward Island, has scored four goals during the playoffs this season. The normally low-scoring Preds have a consistent option in Ward, who has points in seven of nine games during the playoffs.
 
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
Insight: Ward has now posted two points in back-to-back games and points in four of his last five games. Ward doesn't put up a ton of offense, but Predators coach Barry Trotz will continue to reward Ward with lots of icetime because of his recent play.
 
1/24/2011 9:01:00 AM
Description: Ward put a season-high seven shots in goal in Sunday's shootout victory over Edmonton.
Insight: The one on which he scored gave Ward just six goals for the season. He had only topped four shots in a game once before and never surpassed five. (RapidDraft.com)
 
1/3/2011 2:02:00 PM
