Devin Shore (ankle) is projected to be okay for the season opener.

Shore was initially projected to miss "a couple of weeks" starting on Sept. 25, so the idea that he'll be ready for the start of the season isn't too surprising. He played in three games with Dallas in 2015-16.
Sep 30 - 3:37 PM

Ales Hemsky (groin) should be okay in time for the season opener.

That news doesn't come as a big surprise given that the previous timetable for Hemsky was seven-to-10 days. It's been about five days since that timetable was established so it wouldn't surprise us if he also got into a preseason game or two next week.
Sep 30 - 3:35 PM

Tyler Seguin (head) is projected to be ready for the season opener.

Seguin is also expected to resume skating next week. He suffered the injury while playing in an exhibition game with Team Canada.

Kari Lehtonen will be the Dallas Stars' starter in Friday's contest against St. Louis.

Lehtonen is gearing up for another season of battling Antti Niemi for playing time. Neither was particularly great in 2015-16 and Lehtonen specifically posted a 2.76 GAA and .906 save percentage in 43 contests with the Dallas Stars.

Tyler Seguin (heel) should be able to skate next week, per Stars GM Jim Nill.

Seguin sustained the injury during an exhibition game with Team Canada. His progress is a silver lining on the injury front for Dallas after they lost Mattias Janmark (knee surgery) for five-to-six months.
Sep 30 - 1:01 PM

Mattias Janmark needs knee surgery and will miss the next five-to-six months.

Janmark has a joint disorder called Osteochondritis dissecans. We don't know when he started experiencing symptoms, but he missed Thursday's practice and then was later seen using crutches. He had 15 goals and 29 points in 73 games last season. Unfortunately this is just the latest and worst development in what has been a rough preseason for Dallas on the injury front.
Sep 30 - 12:09 PM

Ondrej Vala has agreed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Dallas Stars.

Vala had 21 points and 52 penalty minutes in 72 WHL games in 2015-16. The 18-year-old blueliner had gone undrafted. "Ondrej has shown a combination of size and physicality along with the ability to play a defensively responsible game at the junior hockey level," said Stars GM Jim Nill. "He was part of our team this year at the Traverse City Tournament and we look forward to his continued development playing for Don Hay and the coaching staff in Kamloops."

Mattias Janmark (lower body) didn't practice with the Stars on Thursday.

The extent of Janmark's injury isn't known, but he was seen using crutches so that's discouraging. He had 15 goals and 29 points in 73 contests in 2015-16.

Esa Lindell will need to be a top-six defensman for the Stars or it is likely that he will be assigned to the AHL.

Coach Lindy Ruff stated that Lindell has to play to be on the roster. "I want to make team for sure, but I just need to play my game," Lindell said. "I just need to go play and not worry about anything else." He was a healthy scratch in two of Finland's three games at the World Cup of Hockey, so he is anxious to get back to work.

Philippe Desrosiers gave up two of four goals in the Dallas Stars 4-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche Wednesday night.

Desrosiers spent last year with the ECHL Idaho Steelheads and AHL Texas Stars. He won five games with the minor league affiliate Stars and lost five. One other goal was scored against Antti Niemi and the final point wound up in an empty net.
Sep 29 - 12:19 AM

The Dallas Stars’ Radek Faksa came to play against the Colorado Avalanche, but back-to-back goals in the second period were not enough to lift his team. Dallas lost the 4-2 preseason decision Wednesday night.

Faksa played 45 games with the Stars last year scoring five goals in the process with seven assists. His time in the AHL was more productive with 15 goals and 11 assists in 28 games. Faksa’s two goals Wednesday night came in a flurry, only seven seconds into the second period with another following at the 3:30 minute mark. Unfortunately, he did not get any help and his two goals were the only scored by the Stars.

Jason Spezza got a bit slimmer in the off-season.

"I'm just trying to get better, trying to adapt with the times," Spezza said. "The game is going in a certain direction and you don't want to get left behind. I think I have a lot of good, productive years ahead of me, so I want to make changes." He is motivated for success this season and in the playoffs, so another 60-point campaign should be in the cards for the 33-year-old center.
Sep 28 - 5:45 PM

Radek Faksa appears to be in the lineup for Wednesday's preseason game after recovering from a concussion.

Faksa missed the Czech Republic's final two games of the World Cup of Hockey due to concussion-like symptoms. However, he skated between Remi Elie and Matej Stransky during the morning skate.
Sep 28 - 4:18 PM

Coach Lindy Ruff said that Tyler Seguin (heel) is close to being able to resume skating.

Other than that there isn't an update on his status as he recovers from a heel injury. Seguin was hurt at an exhibition game for Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey. The Stars hope to have ready to go for the regular season, but for now he is day-to-day.
Sep 28 - 12:25 PM

Dallas has returned Chris Martenet to London of the OHL.

The Stars have a camp roster at 51 players now. Martenet recorded 12 points and 85 penalty minutes in 67 games with the Knights last season.
