Jason Demers recorded a goal for the Stars in their 4-3 win over the Blues on Saturday night.

Demers has four of his seven points in 13 games with the Stars, so he has done just what general manager Jim Nill hoped for when he traded for him. The goal was his first of the season, so he’s not much of a fantasy option at this point. Trevor Daley, Ryan Garbutt and Travis Moen also scored for Dallas.

Kari Lehtonen set aside 30 shots in the Stars’ 4-3 win against the Blues on Saturday night.

It has not been an easy year for the Finnish goalie. Lehtonen should certainly be better than his 2.99 goals-against average and .904 save percentage, however his teammates’ play in their own zone has been lackluster for most of the season. If they can figure it out, Lehtonen will benefit. It's hard to be optimistic in that regard, though.

Travis Morin and Cameron Gaunce will be healthy scratches Saturday night against St. Louis.

Morin has played in five games for the Stars this year without recording a point while Gaunce has yet to crack the lineup this season. Both players are not worthy of a fantasy spot on your roster.
Dec 27 - 7:20 PM

Travis Moen is expected to return to the Dallas lineup Saturday night against the Blues.

Moen has been sidelined since December 9th with an upper body injury but will return to the Stars lineup Saturday. He has yet to record a single point in 21 games played but will lineup on the wing with Shawn Horcoff and Vernon Fiddler in hopes of scoring his first point of the season.
Dec 27 - 7:18 PM

Colton Sceviour may get the chance to play alongside Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin against St. Louis Saturday night.

At least that's how the first line looked during Saturday morning's skate. Jason Spezza skated between Ales Hemsky and Erik Cole. If you looking for a one-night pick up, consider Sceviour.
Dec 27 - 2:48 PM

The Stars have recalled defenseman Cameron Gaunce from Texas of the AHL.

Gaunce isn't much of a scorer but he could be a penalty minute-per game guy when he gets a chance to play. He was likely recalled because one of the Dallas blueliners is injured. As soon as we know more we will let you know.
Dec 27 - 2:42 PM

Kari Lehtonen will get the start when the Stars face off against the Blues Saturday night.

Lehtonen is coming off a 4-0 loss to Toronto this past Tuesday. For the season he has a 3.00 GAA and a .904 save percentage. Start him at our own peril.
Dec 27 - 2:39 PM

Vernon Fiddler has no goals and two assists in his last 14 games.

Fiddler has played in 689 games, but he's never been much of an offensive threat and that's not expected to change. He's one of the Stars' better options on the draw though with 259 wins in 481 attempts (53.8%).
Dec 26 - 12:37 PM

Jamie Oleksiak has been assigned to the minors.

He has been a healthy scratch for the past two games, including Tuesday's loss to Toronto. In 22 matches this season, Oleksiak has four points, 46 hits and a minus-1 rating. He has been averaging 11:55 of ice time at the NHL level.
Dec 24 - 12:53 PM

Antoine Roussel was one of the few members of the Stars to make a positive contribution despite a 4-0 loss to Toronto on Tuesday.

As is his style, Roussel racked up nine penalty minutes in the defeat and was one of just a few Dallas players who wasn't saddled with a negative plus/minus rating in the contest. His 85 PIM place him second in the league behind only the Penguins' Steve Downie.
Dec 23 - 10:43 PM

Kari Lehtonen allowed three goals on 25 shots Tuesday night as the Stars dropped a 4-0 decision to the Maple Leafs.

Lethonen has been victimized by his team's shoddy defensive coverage many times in the past so this is no different, but it's certainly disheartening for his fantasy owners. His 13-8-5 record isn't terrible, but a 3.00 GAA and .904 save percentage have been of no help.
Dec 23 - 10:39 PM

Jamie Oleksiak and Travis Moen will sit Tuesday night versus the Leafs.

It's their second straight game on the pine.
Dec 23 - 6:56 PM

Kari Lehtonen will be between the pipes Tuesday against Toronto.

It's been a tough month for Lehtonen as four of his seven starts have seen at least three pucks go past him, which includes being yanked from his start in Edmonton on Sunday. With a 2.99 GAA and .904 save percentage, it's hard to recommend him against the highest scoring team in the NHL to date.
Dec 23 - 5:15 PM

Ales Hemsky was honored with a video tribute in his return to Edmonton on Sunday.

"The people treat me really well here, so I can't complain about that," Hemsky said. "I had a few people who recognized me (Saturday) and said it was nice to see you. That was definitely nice to hear." He earned a pair of assists in Dallas' 6-5 shootout win over his old club. Hemsky has two goals and 10 points in 29 games this campaign.
Dec 22 - 1:01 PM

Jamie Benn produced a goal and an assist in a 6-5 shootout win over Edmonton on Sunday.

He tallied his 10th goal of the year late in the second period on the power play to help kick start Dallas' comeback victory. Benn made it 5-3 for the Oilers heading into the intermission. He earned his 20th assist on Tyler Seguin's game-tying marker.
