Julius Honka was a healthy scratch Thursday night.

Honka wasn't in the lineup for the first two games and then he played four games in a row. Dallas has been juggling eight defensemen on the roster. "I try to take as much as I can," Honka said. "I work hard every day and try to make myself better. I definitely think you can learn from watching, so I'm trying to do that."

John Klingberg contributed a pair of assists in a 5-4 victory versus Arizona on Thursday night.

Klingberg had the secondary helper on two goals by Tyler Seguin during the third period. He didn't have a point in his previous two outings after he opened the regular season with a four-game point streak. Klingberg is up to two goals and five assists in seven matches this year.
Oct 20 - 11:10 AM

Jamie Benn amassed three points in Thursday's 5-4 win over Arizona.

Benn scored a power-play marker and he assisted on both goals by Tyler Seguin in the contest. The Stars captain has seven points in seven games.
Oct 20 - 11:03 AM

Ben Bishop recorded his third straight victory on Thursday night, stopping 27 of the 31 shots he faced as the Dallas Stars defeated the Arizona Coyotes 5-4.

Bishop made a key save in the final seconds to preserve his team's victory. On a night where three players had two-goal games, he was kept out of the three star selection even though he played well enough to be considered. He now owns a 4-1-0 record with a 1.93 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage.
Oct 20 - 12:47 AM

Tyler Seguin scored a pair of goals as the Dallas Stars defeated the Arizona Coyotes 5-3 on Thursday night.

Both of Seguin's goals came in the third period and he came within inches of adding another with the net empty late in the game. He is playing extremely well alongside Jamie Benn who had a goal and an assist in this game. Seguin now has five goals and seven points in seven games this season. He is a sure fantasy bet, as he has topped the 70-point marker in each of his last four seasons.
Oct 20 - 12:41 AM

Jamie Oleksiak is projected to play Thursday night.

Oleksiak's return is expected to make Julius Honka a healthy scratch against Arizona. Oleksiak doesn't have any fantasy value.
Oct 19 - 10:25 AM

Look for Ben Bishop to play between the pipes on Thursday.

Bishop will be going for his third straight win. He has a 1.49 GAA and .944 save percentage in five contests this season.
Oct 18 - 3:01 PM

Dan Hamhuis posted a goal with an assist and a plus-2 rating while delivering three hits in 19:44 of ice time Tuesday against the Coyotes.

Hamhuis failed to post a point over his first three games and he was slowed by a groin injury. He has never been much of a threat to score, and he managed just one goal in 79 games during the 2016-17 season. Needless to say, he remains relevant only in deeper fantasy pools and formats using hits and blocked shots.
Oct 18 - 12:38 AM

Radek Faksa scored a goal and he added an assist with a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 3-1 victory against the Coyotes.

Faksa had been scoreless over his first five games, so don't get terribly excited about this offensive performance. He posted 12 goals and 33 points last season, but he is most useful to fantasy owners for his work in the hits department.
Oct 18 - 12:33 AM

Ben Bishop earned his third win of the season as the Dallas Stars defeated the Arizona Coyotes 3-1 on Tuesday night.

Bishop stopped 27 of the 28 shots he faced, including all 15 fired his way in the third period. He followed up a solid effort against Colorado on Saturday with an outstanding performance against the Coyotes, earning praise on social media. He is now 3-1-0 this season with a 1.49 goals-against average and a .944 save percentage. He continues to be a solid choice in fantasy leagues.
Oct 17 - 11:21 PM

Alexander Radulov scored his first goal as a Dallas Star as his team defeated the Arizona Coyotes 3-1 on Tuesday night.

Radulov's empty-net goal was reviewed by the referees but eventually stood. The Russian is off to a bit of a slow start by his standards so far this season, with just one goal and two assists in six games. He notched 54 points in 76 games last season in his return to the NHL with the Montreal Canadiens, but is now playing with two of the game's best in Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn. If Ken Hitchcock keeps this top line together, look for Radulov to top last season's totals.
Oct 17 - 11:14 PM

Jamie Oleksiak will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's contest against Arizona.

Oleksiak suited up in each of the first four games of the regular season, but he's now been scratched in back-to-back contests. He finished with a minus-1 rating in each of those four outings. Greg Pateryn and Gemel Smith will also watch from the press box. None of these three players carry any fantasy value.
Oct 17 - 8:11 PM

Ben Bishop will get the start in Tuesday's game against the Arizona Coyotes.

Bishop has been solid this season, as he owns a 2-1-0 record with a 1.62 goals-against-average and a .938 save percentage. He'll be a solid fantasy option in daily leagues tonight.
Oct 17 - 3:36 PM

Jamie Benn scored a goal and registered an assist in a 3-1 win against Colorado on Saturday.

Benn's on a three-game point streak after being held off the scoresheet in his first two contests of 2017-18. He's up to two goals and four points this season.
Oct 15 - 4:55 AM

Devin Shore registered two assists in Dallas' 3-1 win against Colorado on Saturday.

It was Shore's first multi-point game since Feb. 24. He's up to four assists in five games this season. It wouldn't be surprising to see him surpass his 2016-17 totals of 13 goals and 33 points in 82 contests, but he still probably won't have much fantasy value in standard leagues.
