Jiri Hudler has had a rough 2016-17 and he made the highlight reel for the wrong reason on Thursday night.

He scored into his own net during a delayed penalty in the first period of a 3-2 loss to Ottawa when his drop pass went between Dallas' defensemen. "I wasn't trying to do it, it was just a mistake," Hudler said. "It was unfortunate." He has skated in just 24 games this season, while dealing with illness and healthy scratches, and he has contributed a mere seven points.

Jiri Hudler scored his first goal of the season at the 7:44 mark of the third period to give Dallas a 6-4 win over Los Angeles on Monday night.

After a relatively calm first and second period, the third exploded with six goals scored. Dallas entered that period with a 3-1 lead, but the Kings scored three times in the first five and half minutes with one answer from the Stars. A little more than two minutes after Drew Doughty tied the game, Hudler reestablished the Stars lead. Hudler’s first goal in 16 games this season was not the only drought-killer for the Stars. Brett Ritchie kicked off the scoring for the team late in the first to snap a 12-game goalless streak. Hudler also had an assist on Tyler Seguin's second period goal

Jiri Hudler is not quite ready to return on Saturday against the Flyers.

He's so close you can taste it. (Now go rinse your mouth out.) Hudler probably just needs a couple more days to work up his strength as he hasn't played since Nov. 1st. He has no points in four games thus far.

Jiri Hudler (illness) skated Monday and could be back in the lineup soon.

"I think now it's just all about conditioning," coach Lindy Ruff said. "He's missed a tremendous amount of time, but he's got a good week ahead of him here. I don't know where he'll be by the end of the week, but I think we can get him five real good days and we'll see by the weekend where he's at." Hudler has appeared in just four games this season because of an illness and he hasn't played since Nov. 1.

Jiri Hudler is still dealing with some sort of illness that saps his strength.

Hudler is practicing with his teammates but he tires easily. It seems that whatever illness he is battling is going to take some more time to resolve.
