Ward will start the Winter Classic on Tuesday.

Ward allowed five goals on 26 shots in the Blackhawks loss to the Panthers on December 23rd. Despite Collin Delia winning three straight, the Blackhawks will go with the veteran netminder in the Winter Classic. Ward was 2-4-0 with a 3.90 GAA and .879 SV% in December, so he probably isn’t good option against a Bruins team that has gone 7-4-0 in their last 11.

Ward will start Thursday in Dallas.

Ward made 30 saves on 31 shots in the Blackhawks win over the Predators on Tuesday. The win ended a personal four-game losing streak for Ward, who is now 5-5-4 with a 3.95 GAA and .888 SV% on the season. Dallas has typically been a difficult place to play, so Ward likely won’t string two wins together. He is 3-3-2 with 3.83 GAA and .885 SV% on the road.

Ward will start Tuesday vs. the Predators.

Ward gave up five goals on 35 shots after replacing Corey Crawford, who left with a concussion, in Sunday’s loss to the Sharks. With Crawford out indefinitely, Ward becomes the Blackhawks’ No.1 netminder again. Through 14 games, Ward has the second worst GAA (4.17) and tied for the fifth worst SV% (.883) among the 63 qualified starters. He has been terrible and should not be trusted in any format.

Ward will make his Blackhawks debut in Ottawa on Thursday.

Ward spent the first 13 seasons of his NHL career in Carolina, where he had a 2.70 GAA and .909 SV% across 668 games. This summer he signed with the Blackhawks, where he projects to be Corey Crawford’s backup when Crawford gets healthy. He will be a very risky option over the course of the season, but if you can’t trust him vs. the Senators, you’ll never be able to trust him.
