Cody Eakin was back between Ryan Garbutt and Antoine Roussel in Tuesday's game against Edmonton.

Coach Lindy Ruff made the move midway through the contest. While Garbutt was injured, Eakin had been playing with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn and Roussel was skating with Jason Spezza and Ales Hemsky. The reunited trio can provide energy, but they obviously lose fantasy value outside of the top-two lines.

Look for Cody Eakin to stay on Dallas' top line between Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin for Saturday night's game against the Kings.

In line rushes Saturday morning the Stars' other lines were as follows: Antoine Roussel-Jason Spezza-Ales Hemsky, Travis Moen-Vern Fiddler-Patrcik Eaves and Erik Cole-Shawn Horcoff-Curtis McKenzie. The first PP unit featured Benn, Spezza and Seguin but also surprisingly Antoine Roussel and John Klingberg, who has impressed the Dallas coaching staff. The second unit had Trevor Daley and Alex Goligoski at the points and Eakin, Hemsky and Eaves up front. Adjust your roster accordingly.
