Dan Hamhuis won't suit up in Friday's game against the San Jose Sharks.

It's unclear as to why he's not playing tonight, but reporter Mark Stepneski believes Hamhuis could be "banged up". Stephen Johns will take his spot in the lineup.

Dan Hamhuis picked up his seventh point of the season during Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Flyers.

Through 27 games now the veteran defender has seven helpers. With just 55 career goals in 899 games, we wouldn't expect much unfortunately.

Dan Hamhuis will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the St. Louis Blues.

Hamhuis is in his first year with the Stars, but he hasn't fit in as well as he would have hoped. He has no goals and five assists in 21 games this season. Curtis McKenzie and Stephen Johns will also watch from the press box.

Dan Hamhuis will be scratched against the Wild on Saturday.

With two points, nine hits, and 10 blocks in seven games thus far, Hamhuis is providing his usual type of production. A bit of physicality with a few points mixed in.

Dan Hamhuis wants to bring defensive stability to the Dallas Stars.

The Stars signed Hamhuis as an unrestricted free agent this summer after losing puck movers like Alex Goligoski and Jason Demers. "The strength of this team is the offensive power, and I’m hoping what I can bring to the team is sound defensive presence," Hamhuis said. "That’s the way I have played throughout my career, I take a lot of pride in my defensive game."

Newly-signed defenseman Dan Hamhuis will likely get plenty of second power-play ice time this upcoming season.

We expect John Klingberg to anchor the power-play and skate for the first minute or so on the Stars' first unit, but Hamhuis would be the next off the bench to direct the second team. That makes him somewhat valuable in fantasy pools. Don't forget about him on draft day. He should make a solid late-round selection.

Dallas has agreed to terms with Dan Hamhuis on a two-year contract.

His new deal has an AAV of $3.75 million. Hamhuis had three goals and 13 points in 58 games last season with Vancouver.

Dan Hamhuis enters July 1 as one of the top unrestricted free agent targets on defense.

The 33-year-old is sure to receive considerable interest, as he is just one of a small handful of UFA's on the market who can step into a reliable top-four role. The 6'1, 210-pound veteran has been an NHL regular since 2003. He's missed the playoffs just three times since then, and has only held a negative plus-minus rating four times.

The negotiation rights to Dan Hamhuis could be moved by Vancouver at the NHL Draft this weekend.

"We would do something like that, but we haven't had any calls," GM Jim Benning said Monday. "And that whole situation with Dan I would say is still fluid. We're going to see at the draft when we're talking to other teams if there are players who make us better and then we can circle back with Dan and try to get something figured out. There's nothing that has changed on that, we're still trying to figure it out." Hamhuis is expected to test unrestricted free agency on July 1.

Dan Hamhuis picked up his second goal of the season during Friday's 3-2 win over Anaheim.

Hamhuis' first goal came just eight games ago, if this were October we'd say something about being on track for a 10 goal season. But it's April, so just enjoy the tally for what it is.

Dan Hamhuis was the lone goal scorer for the Vancouver Canucks on Monday.

It was Hamhuis' second goal of the 2015-16 campaign. He has ten points this season in forty-one games played. Hamhuis' goal was assisted by Linden Vey and Daniel Sedin.

Dan Hamhuis assisted on both of Vancouver's goals during Thursday's 3-2 loss to San Jose.

The veteran defender is now up to just eight points on the season, and is without a goal through 39 games. With just 52 goals and 296 points in 852 career games, we wouldn't look to him for offensive production.

Dan Hamhuis will indeed play Sunday night against San Jose.

This could be Hamhuis' final game with the Canucks, as he's already agreed to be traded to certain teams. All that's left to do is for Vancouver to pull the trigger.

Dan Hamhuis has agreed to be traded to certain teams.

Hamhuis has a no-trade contract so getting permission was important. "We’d like to stay," Hamhuis said. "But we have an open mind to going, possibly to the right fit, if that’s what (the Canucks) want to do." Hamhuis has little fantasy value with only six assists in 36 games but he is a valuable defenseman in real hockey.
