Shawn Horcoff snapped a five-game pointless drought with a goal and an assist in Thursday night's 4-3 shootout win over Florida.

The veteran has 23 points in 61 games in what has been an up-and-down year for Horcoff. On one hand, he's already three points ahead of last year's points output, but the Stars are eight points and three teams back of the final Wild Card spot in the West.

Shawn Horcoff knows he could be traded, but he's hoping to stay in Dallas.

"My best situation is we win some games and you don't trade anybody," said the 36-year-old center, who can become an unrestricted free agent in the summer. "That's what I would prefer." Erik Cole is another possible trade candidate who would like to remain with the Stars.

Shawn Horcoff (illness) took part in Tuesday's game.

Wed, Dec 10, 2014 02:08:00 AM

Shawn Horcoff was absent from Monday's practice because he was feeling under the weather.

Ales Hemsky, who was a healthy scratch Saturday, skated on the fourth line instead. It's unclear if Horcoff will be ready for Tuesday's game or if Hemsky will play in the match.

Shawn Horcoff cashed in on a rebound during the the first period to give Dallas a 2-1 lead on Sunday.

Veteran Shawn Horcoff scored the only goal for Dallas in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Los Angeles.

The goal came just 2:37 into the first period and pushed the Stars out to a 1-0 that were unable to retain. Vernon Fiddler and Jordie Benn drew assists on the tally as the Dallas top line was surprisingly held off the scoresheet.

Shawn Horcoff has meshed well with Erik Cole of late.

The duo has been productive in Dallas' last two games, with Horcoff assisting on three goals by Cole. "I'm in a different part of my career now, but I know with the minutes I get, I can still produce, I can still find a way to help the team," said Horcoff. He started the season on the fourth line and he's averaged just 11:25 of ice time per game. His hot streak is unlikely to last.

Shawn Horcoff appears to be penciled in to play left wing on the fourth line this season.

If the Stars want to shake up their lines at some point then he could end up skating with Jason Spezza and Ales Hemsky. Horcoff played with Hemsky in Edmonton, but a move to the second line would be a significant jump after averaged just 12:51 of ice time last season. He recorded just seven goals and 20 points in 77 games. Horcoff ended the year well with a team-leading six points in the playoffs. However, it's unlikely he'll chip in much offensively in 2014-15 while serving as a decent depth forward for the Stars.

Shawn Horcoff collected two assists in Wednesday's 4-2 victory over Anaheim.
