An assist against the Isles and a plus-three week is about as good as it gets these days for Ward, who hasn't been on the ice for an opposing goal of any kind since February 12 (yet inexplicably continues to not kill penalties and toils away on the fourth line).
Not that interesting to me. Struggling early, changes roles, and is now succeeding. Sounds like he's doing well because he's a good fit for that role, not like it's an indication that he needs to go back to the expanded role at which he wasn't performing.
His check is way too much for the role he excels at.
