RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

There was no outlook written for Aaron Ward.

2009-10

Across the league, there are players who give their respective teams huge boosts even though their efforts don't appear on stat sheets very often. Ward is no exception. When Carolina re-acquired him from Boston in the offseason, they gained a capable body on the penalty kill. Likewise, at 6-foot-2, 215, Ward fits the mold in accordance with GM Jim Rutherford's plans to beef up his defense. Unfortunately, this doesn't add up to much. In fact, his best offensive season was with the 2005-06 Hurricanes when he tallied 25 points (6G, 19A) in 71 games. Since he'll be paired with Pitkanen, we envision about that same level of offense from the blueliner this season, but there should be offensive-minded defensemen to opt for instead.

2008-09

While he's not a big-time offensive factor or a PIM collector, Ward is a solid defensive-minded blueliner who brings a consistent veteran presence to the table for the Bruins.

2007-08

A defensive defenseman with not much fantasy value. He's never scored more than 25 points in a season and his plus-minus will almost always hurt you.

2006-07

The 11-year veteran defenseman has won three Stanley Cups and will give the Rangers some reliability on their blue line. Skated in 71 games with Carolina Hurricanes in 2005-06, Ward notched six goals and 19 assists for 25 points, along with 62 penalty minutes. He'll likely be a top-four defenseman for the Rangers, but whether he'll mesh well with the group will be determined as the season goes along.

2005-06

Ward isn't an offensive threat; you should expect something on the order of a dozen points, tops, from him this year. He will pick up about one penalty minute a game, but even if that's one of your categories, it probably isn't enough to warrant your selecting him.
