News: Ward netted two goals in 16:20 of ice time in Saturday's win over Calgary. Impact: A dominant performance from Ward, who opened the scoring with a power-play tally in the first period, before scoring the eventual game-winning goal at even strength in the second period. Although his fourth-line role isn't ideal for fantasy owners, Ward has still managed four goals in seven games this season, making him worth a look in deep leagues. His great shot comes in handy on the power play, where he lines up on the Capitals' second unit. Expect another 20-goal season from the 33-year-old.(RotoWire, )

News: Ward scored his second goal of the season in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Devils. Impact: Ward's unassisted marker with 17:35 remaining in the third period resulted in the Devils removing goalie Cory Schneider from the game. The winger is off to a respectable start to the 2014-15 campaign, but don't expect him to repeat last season's 24-goal, 49-point performance, which was aided heavily by an unsustainable 18 percent shooting rate.(RotoWire, )
