Alex Goligoski didn't participate in Wednesday's practice due to multiple injuries.

Goligoski was cut by a skate just under his ear during Tuesday's game, but Stars coach Lindy Ruff revealed that he's also dealing with an unrelated nagging injury. He might not end up missing any games over these problems, but we're erring on the side of caution by listing him as day-to-day.

Trevor Daley has been held off the scoresheet once in six games this season.

He extended his point streak to three games on Tuesday night when he earned an assist on Ryan Garbutt's opening goal in a 6-3 win for the Stars. Daley has accounted for six points in six contests.

Ryan Garbutt scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday's win over Vancouver.

He also added an assist in the match to give him four points in six contests. Garbutt was a good contributor for the Stars last season, with 17 goals and 32 points in 75 games. He had 106 penalty minutes as well, but he's only posted four so far this season.

Tyler Seguin had a goal and an assist in a 6-3 win over Vancouver on Tuesday.

Seguin was just awarded with the NHL's first star of the week and he co-leads the league with 10 points in six games. He led the Stars with six shots in Tuesday's victory.

Kari Lehtonen put forth a strong performance Tuesday night as he turned away 43 of 46 Vancouver shots in a 6-3 victory.

Lehtonen's record is an impressive 3-0-2 for the season, but part of his success has been derived by the explosive offense the Stars have been able to put on the ice. His GAA of .292 and his save percentage of .913 are good rates, but not elite.
Oct 22 - 12:49 AM

Erik Cole finally found his stride on Tuesday as he scored a pair of goals in the Stars' 6-3 win over Vancouver.

Cole has registered one measly point through his first four games and had been continuously been bounced between different sets of linemates in the process. Hopefully, the chemistry he developed with fellow veteran Shawn Horcoff will allow the pair to remain together for the foreseeable future. Jamie Benn, Ryan Garbutt, Cody Eakin and Tyler Seguin all joined in on the fun in this game by finding the back of the net in the win.
Oct 22 - 12:46 AM

Jason Spezza will play alongside Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin on Tuesday.

The trio excelled on Saturday, so coach Lindy Ruff decided to keep them together. It's no surprise that Spezza, Benn, and Seguin would shine together as they're three of the league's top players. However, by keeping that line intact, Ruff is significantly hurting the team's ability to put out two strong lines, so it wouldn't surprise us if Spezza eventually goes back to centering the second unit.
Oct 21 - 12:23 PM

Tyler Seguin captured the league's first star of the week for the period ending Oct. 19.

He racked up eight points (four goals, four assists) in three games to lead the NHL in scoring. Seguin's fifth career hat trick came in a 4-2 victory over Columbus last Tuesday and collected a career-high four assists in a 6-5 overtime defeat to Philadelphia this past Saturday.

Patrik Nemeth (arm) will miss the rest of the regular season.

That's troubling news for the promising 22-year-old defenseman. Nemeth's arm was cut by a skate in Saturday's game against Philadelphia and it will cost him the remainder of the 2014-15 campaign after just five appearances.
Oct 20 - 2:03 PM

Jamie Oleksiak is expected to draw into the Dallas lineup due to injuries.

The Stars lost Patrik Nemeth (arm) on Saturday and Sergei Gonchar (ankle) hasn't played yet this season. Oleksiak has dressed in one game for the Stars this year.
Oct 20 - 11:42 AM

The Dallas Stars placed Valeri Nichushkin on injured reserve on Sunday.

The 19-year-old has been out with a groin injury since October 11th. He was originally supposed to miss a week to a week and half.
Oct 19 - 6:17 PM

The Dallas Stars have recalled Jyrki Jokipakka from the Texas Stars of the AHL.

Jokipakka will replace Patrik Nemeth, who suffered a laceration on his arm during Saturday's game against Philadelphia. The 23-year-old has never played a game in the NHL.
Oct 19 - 6:14 PM

Valeri Nichushkin (groin) could return to practice at some point this week.

Nichushkin has been dealing with a groin/hip injury and hasn't played since October 11th. The 19-year-old is pointless in two games this season.
Oct 19 - 10:44 AM

According to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News, Stars' defenseman Patrik Nemeth "could be out for months".

Nemeth left Saturday's game against Philadelphia after he was cut on the arm by a skate. The 22-year-old had no points in five games this season.
Oct 19 - 10:38 AM

Dallas Stars' head coach Lindy Ruff thought his team played "stupid, garbage" hockey in Dallas' 6-5 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday.

"We played stupid hockey, lack of focus," Ruff said. "You play like that, you deserve to lose." The Stars had a 4-2 lead heading into the third period, before losing the game in overtime. Ruff was clearly frustrated by the team's lack of defensive awareness and rightfully so. The Stars have plenty of skill, but they will have to be better in their own end if they want to be considered elite.
