Joel Ward

 

Fantasy Impact: The Washington Capitals have signed winger Joel Ward to a four-year deal worth $12 million.

 

The Capitals get: A gritty playoff warrior who is strong at both ends of the rink. They want some sandpaper for the postseason? They've got it.

 

Fantasy Players Impacted: Ward slides into the third line, and thus doesn't hurt anyone except perhaps Eric Fehr slips a little further down the depth chart. Ward can sub in on a scoring line, which puts the pressure on Brouwer to remain consistent.

 

Potential Line Combos:

Ovechkin-Backstrom-Brouwer

Semin-Johansson-Knuble

Chimera-Laich-Ward

Hendricks-Perreault-Fehr

 

Fantasy Players this helps, in order:

1. Helps the team in general, but nobody in specific.

 

Fantasy Players this hurts, in order:

1. Fehr

2. Ward

3. Brooks Laich
