Cody Eakin will miss the next six weeks with a knee injury.

The six week mark puts Eakin's return in early November. The 25-year-old is coming off three straight seasons of at least 16 goals and 35 points. However he's also seen his raw shot attempt totals drop sharply in that time, so we wouldn't put a lot of stock into him when he does come back unless your pool is especially deep.

Cody Eakin suffered a low-body injury during Friday's skate.

Eakin will be kept off the ice Saturday as a result. His issue isn't believed to be a serious one and given that it's September it's entirely possible that Dallas would just rather have him rest anything minor rather than risk it lingering on.

Cody Eakin scored the overtime winner for the Stars in Game 4 on Thursday night, sending the series with the Blues back to Dallas squared at two.

Eakin chose a great moment to score his first goal of the playoffs after picking up seven assists in nine post-season games so far. The 24-year-old has picked up the offensive slack left by Tyler Seguin and his injury. Jamie Benn and Jason Spezza each had two points to boost the Stars.
May 5 - 11:19 PM

Cody Eakin registered three assists in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Eakin set up all three of Dallas' goals in the game. Two of the three were primary assists. The 24-year-old has yet to find the back of the net in the playoffs, but he has picked up seven assists in eight games. He's an underrated part of the Stars' team.

Cody Eakin didn't attend Tuesday's practice, but it was just a maintenance day for him.

He is expected to be back on the ice for the Stars' next session. Valeri Nichushkin, who was a healthy scratch in Game 6 against Minnesota, filled in for Eakin on the top line during Tuesday's practice.

Cody Eakin picked up an assist in a 5-4 win over Minnesota in Game 6.

His helper came on a first-period tally by Patrick Sharp. Eakin and the Stars advanced into Round 2 on Sunday and he registered four assists in the series.
Apr 25 - 10:21 AM

Cody Eakin is projected to center the top line on Thursday in the Stars' playoff opener against Minnesota.

He finished the regular season alongside Jamie Benn and he will start the postseason there as well. Eakin didn't record a point in the last eight games of the year, but playing between Benn and Patrick Sharp still makes him an intriguing option for playoff pools and daily fantasy.
Apr 14 - 1:59 PM

Cody Eakin has five goals and nine points in his last seven games.

Eakin has been playing with Jamie Benn because Tyler Seguin is out with a cut Achilles. Obviously Benn is an offensive force and Eakin has done a great job of taking advantage of this opportunity. There's a good chance Eakin will stay hot for the remainder of the season, but if you're getting ready for a playoff pool you'll want to keep in mind that Seguin should be back for the postseason. It's not clear what will happen then, but there's a good chance that Seguin will take his old top-line spot and Eakin will center the third unit.
Mar 24 - 10:41 AM

Cody Eakin notched a goal in the Stars’ 3-0 win against the Islanders on Saturday night.

Thrust into a more prominent role with Tyler Seguin injured, Eakin made his presence felt in 18:20. Eakin has recorded six points during a four-game point streak. It remains to be seen if he can keep this up, but it helps to play with Patrick Sharp and Jamie Benn. He has 15 goals and 34 points on the year. Patrick Eaves and Ales Hemsky got the other goals.
Mar 19 - 11:05 PM

Cody Eakin picked up three assists in Thursday's 4-3 win over Tampa Bay.

He experienced some stiffness in his neck after he was hit into the boards by Washington defenseman Dmitry Orlov on Saturday. Eakin practiced Monday morning and it's likely he'll play versus Nashville.
Feb 15 - 5:58 PM

Cody Eakin is on the ice with his teammates during Monday's practice.

This is good news as it was unclear how serious he was injured in Saturday night's contest which he exited in the third period. Although we can't say that Eakin will suit upt for certain Monday night against Nashville, odds are good that he will.
