With Antoine Roussel suspended, Vernon Fiddler will center the Stars' third line.

Cody Eakin and Ryan Garbutt will be Fiddler's linemates on Friday. "I'm just rewarding [Fiddler] for how well he’s played," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. "Instead of having him on the fourth line, I've bumped him up. He's played really well and I'm giving him an opportunity for some added responsibility, some added ice time, which I think he deserves." Fiddler has seven goals and 19 points in 52 contests in 2014-15.

Jan 17 - 2:55 PM

Jan 4 - 11:57 AM

Vernon Fiddler has no goals and two assists in his last 14 games.

Vern Fiddler and Erik Cole did not practice on Friday.

It is not clear if either is injured or was just getting a maintenance day off but it is interesting that Curtis McKenzie was recalled from Texas of the AHL as insurance.

Vernon Fiddler chose to re-sign with the Dallas Stars because he likes the direction of the team.

"Honestly, I had better offers. But I wanted to stay with this team and finish the job," Fiddler said. "There is a real attraction to playing here and playing to win, and seeing this through. I think this is going to be a really good team, and I want to be a part of that." In addition to Fiddler, the Stars signed Ales Hemsky, Patrick Eaves and goalie Anders Lindback. The team also acquired Jason Spezza from the Ottawa Senators. Fiddler requested a trade last year because he wanted more ice time, but he stayed the with the club and "everything took care of itself." He'll make $1 million next season and $1.5 million in 2015-16, while continuing to serve as a bottom-six forward.
