Jozef Stumpel scored one goal and added two assists in Slovakia's 6-0 win over Latvia Saturday night.
Stumpel’s multipoint night included his first points of the tournament. Michal Handzus finished with the same stat line, recording his first three points with a goal and two assists. Handzus, who plays for the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings, and Stumpel, who played with the Kings from 1997-2002 and again in the 2003-04 season, tie Pavol Demitra for the team lead in points after round play. Zigmund Palffy, another former King, registered one assist for the surprising Slovakia team, who knocked off favourite Russia just two nights before beating Latvia. Sat, Feb 20, 2010 09:52:00 PM

Jozef Stumpel played on Tuesday night for the first time in roughly eight weeks.

Jozef Stumpel may return to the lineup if Ville Peltonen cannot return from a foot injury.

Stumpel missed 21 games with a shoulder injury, but has been a healthy scratch for the past three. Coach/GM Jacques Martin does not want to alter a winning lineup that has gone 8-0-1 in March to leap back into the playoff hunt. Stumpel has minimal fantasy value until he proves that he can return to the lineup on a full-time basis.

Jozef Stumpel is fit to return to the lineup.

However, it may be in a limited capacity on the fourth line as coach/GM Jacques Martin is loath to alter a lineup that has won seven consecutive games. Because of that, he is not worth a fantasy roster spot.

Jozef Stumpel could finally be able to return to the Panthers' lineup on Thursday.

He has sat out the past 21 games with a shoulder injury, but he seems to be fully healed now. If Stumpel is ready to play it will likely be on Florida's fourth line though, as coach Jacques Martin is happy with his first three line combinations. "Right now, when you look at how we've been going, our first three lines, I don't think I'll change that," Martin said. "We've got some chemistry there."
