Alex Goligoski is finally beginning to feel better and it is having an impact on his performance.

Goligoski has been dealing with a lower-body bone injury for the past two months which has led to a skipping of practices and a monitoring of his game-time minutes. He has certainly struggled to produce offensively like he has in the past as a result of the injury. But recently, Goligoski has been feeling better and his play has reflected that. Keep an eye on the Stars' defenseman. He may be ready to go on a bit of a roll.

Look for Alex Goligoski to have his playing minutes monitored Saturday against New Jersey.

He is still nursing a lower-body injury and the Stars want to keep his minutes to a modest level Saturday so as not to tax Goligoski too much. Bear this in mind if you were thinking of starting the offensive-minided rearguard.

After struggling at the beginning of last season, Stars’ defenseman Alex Goligoski says his team is better prepared for a fast start this season.

The Stars had a new coaching staff last season, and there was clearly an adjustment period that took place. "I definitely think it took time to get used to one another," Goligoski said. "We had to learn what the coaches wanted, and they had to learn what we could do well. I think we were a much better team at the end of the season." Goligoski and Trevor Daley will probably be Dallas’ top defensive pairing this season. Goligoski registered six goals and 42 points in 81 games last season.

Alex Goligoski may be the Stars' de facto number one defenseman, but he played well for the team last season.

He was good alongside Trevor Daley after he was moved off a pairing with Sergei Gonchar. Goligoski led the team in average ice time per game (24:18) and he finished third on the team with 42 points in 81 contests. One area where Dallas and fantasy owners will be looking for improvement from their top blueliner is on the power play. Goligoski produced 15 points on the man advantage despite seeing significant ice time. The arrival of Jason Spezza this season could help that total.
