Alex Radulov and Brett Ritchie Practicing, Stars Make Trade, and More Roster Moves

Alex Radulov and Brett Ritchie Practicing, Stars Make Trade, and More Roster Moves

Dallas has done a lot of roster shuffling lately. Here’s a quick recap of their moves the past couple of days. The Dallas Stars apparently have an injury bug going around, or at the very least are cursed. When John Klingberg was injured on Thursday’s game against the San Jose Sharks, he joined a list of banged-up players that included Alexander Radulov, Brett Ritchie, Marc Methot, Connor Carrick, and Stephen Johns, as well as Gavin Bayreuther and Reece Scarlett in the AHL. Thankfully for the Stars, it looks like their injury woes might be over soon. Well, at least on the forward...

Lack of depth, unfamiliarity spell trouble for Stars in loss to NHL-best Predators

Just before facing the Nashville Predators on Saturday afternoon, the Stars’ defense, which has been depleted by injuries, restocked with AHL call-ups and then depleted again, took another hit: the team announced defenseman Roman Polak would miss the game with an illness.A game after losing John Klingberg at least four weeks to an injury that required surgery, with defensemen Stephen Johns (post-traumatic headaches) and Connor Carrick (foot) also on injured reserve, and with a host of newcomers filling out the roster, the Stars used their 10th defenseman this season.Against the Predators, a...

The key to the Stars unlocking even more possibilities with rookie defeseman Miro Heiskanen

Matthew DeFranks, Stars beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered your questions about the team during a recent live chat. Here are some highlights:Which defenseman do you think has paired the best with Heiskanen's game so far?DeFranks: Just for reference, these are the three defensemen who have started a game alongside Miro Heiskanen: Marc Methot, Connor Carrick and Roman Polak.Currently, Carrick (foot) and Methot (lower-body) are hurt. Neither has skated with the team for a bit now so that's why Polak has been Heiskanen's partner for the last three games, and a...

Dillon Heatherington Recalled as Connor Carrick Put on IR

Dillon Heatherington from the Texas Stars will meet the team in Washington. Earlier today, the Dallas Stars announced that defenseman Dillon Heatherington would be recalled from the Texas Stars as Connor Carrick heads to the injured reserve.

Which Stars defenseman will lose playing time once Stephen Johns returns?

Matthew DeFranks, Stars beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered questions about the team during a recent live chat. Here are some highlights:Who loses playing time when Stephen Johns comes back?DeFranks: Hmm, I think it truly does depend on each player's performance and the matchup. And for how much that sounds like coach-speak, let me explain.This season, Jim Montgomery has shown that he'll healthy scratch Julius Honka, Connor Carrick and Roman Polak. Carrick's seemed to cool off since the blazing start of the season, and now he has a foot injury. Honka's shown...

Stars coach Jim Montgomery uses seven defensemen during win over Los Angeles

Stars coach Jim Montgomery went into his bag of tricks during Tuesday night's 4-2 win over Los Angeles, rolling out a lineup with 11 forwards and seven defensemen instead of the customary 12 and six.With Alexander Radulov and Valeri Nichushkin both nursing lower-body injuries, the Stars had 12 healthy forwards, including recent recall Justin Dowling and oft-scratched Gemel Smith. They had seven healthy defensemen, and Montgomery said dressing all of them (including Roman Polak, Connor Carrick and Julius Honka) would allow him to match up with Los Angeles' size and speed.He opted to scratch...
