Washington Capitals right winger Joel Ward has reportedly found a new home, signing a deal with the San Jose Sharks, according to multiple reports including Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea.com.
Ward tallied 19 goals and 15 assists in 82 regular-season games last season. He also had one of the most memorable moments of Washington's 2015 playoff run when he netted a last-second goal to beat the New York Rangers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
The Capitals have added two right wingers in the past two days, signing free agent Justin Williams away from Los Angeles and acquiring T.J. Oshie from St. Louis in a trade Thursday.

MORE CAPITALS: NOW OR NEVER FOR CAPS?
Washington Capitals GM Brian MacLellan finally got his day.
Over the weekend, MacLellan played host to the Stanley Cup, taking it home to his offseason house in Minnesota.
MacLellan brought the Cup to Powderhorn Park, where a youth hockey tournament was being put on by the Herb Brooks Foundation.
MacLellean talked with local media about the experience:
"It's a fun day, a fun day to see people react to the Cup," MacLellan told FOX 9 TV. "You know, it brings a lot of smiles to people's faces, people that sometimes don't get a chance to get close to it are getting an opportunity and it's fun to watch them enjoy it."

Since the Washington Capitals won the Stanley Cup for the first time over one month ago, Caps fans, (and players), have rushed to their local tattoo parlor to get some ink commemorating the win.
We've seen the classic Capitals logo with the Stanley Cup, but nothing that comes close to the masterpiece that is Shane Peacher's tattoo.
Peacher tweeted to Joe B and Courtney Laughlin the finished tat: a work of art featuring Alex Ovechkin kissing the Stanley Cup for the first time as it's hoisted over his head.
Joe B replied making sure Shane had enough room on his other tricep for next year.
Shane replied that he's thinking of Evgeny Kuznetsov's iconic celebration that has since been dubbed the "birdman."
Shane got his Caps tattoo at the Helix Tattoo Lodge in Rising Sun, Maryland, by tattoo artist, Justin Holcombe.
