David Schlemko will be a healthy scratch in Chicago on Sunday night.

A night after playing nearly 13 minutes and rating a plus-1 rating with a hit and a block, Schlemko will return to his familiar seat in the stands to watch his teammates. Schlemko has played just twice since coming over to Dallas, deflating any potential fantasy value.
Jan 18 - 5:30 PM

Updating the Stars’ scratches, David Schlemko will be the healthy scratch on defense and not Jyrki Jokipakka.

Jan 17 - 8:01 PM

David Schlemko is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Winnipeg.

Jan 6 - 8:31 PM

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".
Jan 3 - 8:13 PM

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.
Jan 3 - 1:56 PM

David Schlemko has been placed on waivers.

The Coyotes previously waived Schlemko in November and he cleared then, so the same will probably happen this time. He has a goal and four points in 20 contests in 2014-15.

David Schlemko will once again be in the press box Monday night versus the Flyers.

Schlemko hasn't been able to dress since December 20th and will be a healthy scratch again Monday night. In 20 games played this season, he has a goal, three assists, and a minus four rating. Arizona coach Dave Tippett seems comfortable pairing Brandon Gormley and Connor Murphy together as the Coyotes third defensive pairing right now.

David Schlemko will be a healthy scratch for the Coyotes Saturday night.

David Schlemko and Keith Yandle were defense partners on Saturday.

It was thought that the pairing would have a tough time as both are offensive minded rearguards who like to carry the puck but they worked out nicely together on Saturday. Schlemko has a goal and four points in 17 games this season but if he continues to play with Yandle in even strength situations, he should do better.
