Feb 21 - 7:40 PM

David Schlemko has been scratched for eight straight games.

"For me, when he has played he hasn't knocked anybody out of the lineup," coach Lindy Ruff said. "We've won three of our last four [entering Tuesday's game], and I don't feel in this case that I want to take anybody out. When he's in, he has to earn his spot, and I didn't feel he moved ahead of anybody." He has suited up in just five games with the Stars since he was claimed off waivers from Arizona in January.

David Schlemko will sit out against Boston on Tuesday night.

Schlemko has dressed for Dallas just five time this season, and with little to show for it. He has only four points, four penalty minutes, and 36 hits this season, which adds up to a non-viable option for your fantasy squad.

David Schlemko will dress for just the fifth time as a Dallas Star against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday.

With just four points, four penalty minutes, and 36 hits this season, Schlemko is not much of a fantasy option. Even if he is skating with Trevor Daley.

David Schlemko will not debut for Dallas on Sunday night in Chicago.

Through 209 career games since debuting in 2009, Schlemko has nine goals, 50 points, 76 PIMS, 246 hits, and 339 blocks. While he could be a boon for an otherwise underwhelming and inexperienced Dallas defense corps, he is not a very good player for fantasy purposes.
Jan 4 - 6:24 PM

David Schlemko will not be in Dallas' lineup on Saturday against Minnesota.

He wasn't able to get to the game on time, but that is not to say that he will make an immediate impact on the team. GM Jim Nill has noted that Schlemko is only expeted to "provide depth".

The Dallas Stars have claimed David Schlemko off waivers from the Arizona Coyotes.

The Stars are looking for a veteran presence on their blueline so they don't have to use rookies Jamie Oleksiak and Jyrki Jokipakka as extras when they should be playing regularly in the AHL. Schlemko will likely be the Stars' seventh defenseman and will be in and out of the lineup. He has no fantasy value.
