Marc Methot is unlikely to play Friday because of a lower-body injury.

Methot didn't participate in Thursday's practice. He has no points along with 14 penalty minutes, 36 hits and 22 blocks in 15 matches this season.

Marc Methot has been moved onto a pairing with John Klingberg.

The Stars are off to a rough 1-3-0 start, so head coach Ken Hitchcock is mixing things up. Methot isn't a point producer, but he has experience playing big minutes with good puck-movers. In Ottawa, he often found himself paired with Erik Karlsson, so this won't be anything new for him. "I think Klinger is getting targeted, and we are looking for a more veteran presence that's going to have to communicate with him and talk him through some of the stuff," Hitchcock said. "I don't mean that he is getting run over. They are going after him to try to hem him in, and we can help him if we can communicate to help him exit a little cleaner. They worked together in training camp, and Methot was a good voice for him."

Marc Methot will make his preseason debut with Dallas on Tuesday night.

He is expected to be paired with Stephen Johns, while John Klingberg will skate alongside Esa Lindell. It was thought that Methot would have Klingberg as a defense partner, but coach Ken Hitchcock wants to experiment with his combinations at training camp and see what works best.

Marc Methot is projected to be paired with John Klingberg this campaign.

He played well as the defense partner of Erik Karlsson with the Senators, so it makes sense to have him play with Klingberg. "They're both fantastic defensemen," Methot said. "I think with guys like that, you just have to give them the puck when you can, support them when you can, and being able to skate is huge, too, and I think I can do that." It is also hoped that Methot will help the Stars on the penalty kill.

Marc Methot is happy that his playing future is finally settled.

Methot was selected by Vegas in the expansion draft, but it became increasingly clear that the Golden Knights had no intention of keeping him. On Monday night, they shipped the veteran to Dallas, which ended the craziness of the last week. "It was tough, not only for myself but for my pregnant fiancée," Methot said. "I think the unknown aspect of it all was the worst part. Not knowing where we were going to end up and the uncertainty of all that was tough."

Vegas has traded Marc Methot to the Dallas Stars in exchange for the rights to prospect Dylan Ferguson and a second-round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.

Methot was picked up by the Golden Knights in the expansion draft, but it was expected that he would be flipped for future assets. The former Ottawa defender should help bring some stability to a young Stars defense corps.

Marc Methot has been picked up by Vegas in the expansion draft.

Methot is another player who could be traded to another team. He is drawing considerable interest, but the Golden Knights would be more than happy to keep him if they can't get a good return. Methot formed a great defense partnership with Erik Karlsson during his time with the Senators, but his fantasy value is limited at best.

Marc Methot has been selected by the Golden Knights in the expansion draft, according to league sources.

Vegas will announce their selections at the NHL Awards Wednesday night, but the names of some players have leaked to the public. Methot is also being mentioned as possible trade bait for the Golden Knights, so he could be flipped to another team soon. The soon-to-be former Senators defenseman has a 10-team no-trade clause so he has some control over where he will end up playing.

Ottawa tried to work out a deal with Vegas to keep Marc Methot from being taken in the expansion draft, but it's unclear if they were successful.

"We've got until (10 a.m.) tomorrow so there could still be a deal, but I think the ball is in (McPhee’s) court," Senators GM Pierre Dorion said Tuesday. "Whether we lose Marc Methot or anyone else, we know there will be a big loss for our organization, but we feel we have the depth and we can sustain any type of loss." Other teams have reportedly been calling Vegas to trade with them if they select Methot, so that could tip the balance especially if the offers are better than what Ottawa is willing to give.

It is believed that the Senators are working on a side deal with the Vegas Golden Knights so they can keep exposed defenseman Marc Methot.

As it seems Dion Phaneuf did not waive his no-movement clause, Methot was not able to be protected by Ottawa. Stay tuned as Methot would be a nice get for the Golden Knights and they may extract a nice ransom from the Sens to forgo the opportunity of drafting him.

Marc Methot could be picked up by the Vegas Golden Knights in the expansion draft.

TSN's Bob McKenizie reported Tuesday that Dion Phaneuf is unwilling to waive his no-move clause. That would leave Methot available to Vegas if the Senators protect Cody Ceci, Erik Karlsson and Phaneuf. Senators GM Pierre Dorion may have to get creative and work out a deal with the Golden Knights, or another club, to keep Methot on the roster.

Marc Methot's finger was still bothering him during the postseason.

He had part of his finger hacked off by Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby late in the regular season. "It was hanging," Methot said. "When I say that, it was off, it was hanging on the side. The doctors were so good (sewing it back on), they salvaged a lot of the end of the finger. If I had to go to the hospital and maybe lost 15 or 20 minutes, I might have lost it altogether. It looked like it was burnt off." He added that he is slowly getting the feeling back.
