Cody Eakin skated alongside Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin during Monday's practice.
That would obviously be a great opportunity for Eakin, but Stars coach Lindy Ruff wouldn't commit to going with that line on Tuesday. Eakin typically centers the third line, but he would shift to the right wing in order to play with Benn and Seguin. Oct 13 - 4:15 PM

Cody Eakin potted a goal in Dallas' 3-2 shootout loss to Chicago.

He didn't look rusty at all despite missing most of training camp, while waiting for a new contract. Eakin also won 14 draws and lost just nine versus the Blackhawks. He finished the match with 18:31 of ice time, while seeing plenty of action on special teams (3:05 on PP and 3:00 on PK).
Oct 10 - 11:49 AM

Cody Eakin has agreed to a two-year, $3.8 million contract with the Dallas Stars.

Eakin has missed most of the preseason, but at least he has a week and a half to get back up to speed before the Stars' season opener. He's projected to be Dallas' third-line center after Tyler Seguin and Jason Spezza.

Contract negotiations between the Dallas Stars and restricted free-agent Cody Eakin haven’t progressed very much.

Eakin and the Stars don’t seem to agree on what his fair market value is. The 23-year-old has no arbitration rights and therefore has missed all of training camp holding out. Eakin scored 16 goals and 35 points in 81 games with the Stars last season. If Eakin returns to Dallas, he will be the team’s third line centre behind Tyler Seguin and Jason Spezza.

Restricted free agent Cody Eakin is taking part in workouts in Winnipeg.

He notched 16 goals and 19 assists in 81 game last campaign. However, negotiations could get complicated because now his role on the team has changed with the off-season acquisition of Jason Spezza. Eakin is expected to be bumped to the third line this year. If something isn't worked out quickly then he could be a no-show for the start of training camp.

Cody Eakin still needs a contract from the Dallas Stars.

He's a restricted free agent after completing his entry-level deal, so a two-year, bridge contract is a very good possibility. Negotiations will probably ramp up as training camp draws closer. Eakin lost some bargaining power when the Stars acquired Jason Spezza in the off-season because now he's projected to center the third line instead of the second unit.
Aug 29 - 2:10 PM

Cody Eakin is expected to fall to the third line now that Jason Spezza has been added to the Dallas Stars.

That's good news for the Stars because it helps solidify their bottom-six, but obviously it'll be less pleasant for Eakin owners. He had 16 goals and 35 points in 81 games last season and isn't worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues.

He is dealing with some kind of lower-body injury. That said, there is a good chance Eakin will be able to play Sunday against the Jets.
