Jason Demers is starting to look more like himself again.

He earned two assists in Game 4 and logged 18:49 of ice time. "I thought he played fabulous," coach Lindy Ruff said. "I thought he skated well, defended well. That pair was very good for us. Like I said, coming back from injury, he has struggled at times, but I think that's the player that can really help us be real effective in a playoff series." He returned from a shoulder injury just before the regular season ended and he appears to be getting back into form now.

Jason Demers (shoulder) is eyeing the last game of the regular season to get ready for the playoffs.

Jason Demers (shoulder) has started skating again.

"He's skating right now, but limited," coach Lindy Ruff said. "We'll see where he's at when next week starts." Demers suffered a shoulder injury earlier this month, which is expected to sideline him for at least six weeks.
Mar 29 - 11:59 AM

Jason Demers will miss at least six weeks because of a shoulder injury.

Demers was logging 20:54 minutes per game for the Stars, so this is a significant blow for them. Obviously he's not going to come back before the end of the season, so fantasy owners in single season formats should replace him as soon as possible. The question for Dallas though is if Demers will be available at any point during the squad's playoff run. Keep in mind that he will miss at least six weeks, but we don't know if it might be significantly more than that.
