Highlights
2-time SHL Champion 2

Ward was a big defenseman with a strong physical game. He was naturally aggressive and didn't mind dropping the gloves. Good around his own net and along the boards, he would take a bad penalty at times. A good straight-line skater, he wasn't very agile when turning.
