Tyler Seguin said he believes the Boston Bruins gave up on him too early.

No kidding. Seguin had 121 points in three seasons with the Bruins, but he's scored 136 points in just 126 games as a member of the Dallas Stars. "Now that it’s all completely in the past, I can give you my honest answer. Do I think the Bruins gave up on me too early? Yes, I 100 percent believe that," said Seguin. "I had hoped to stay in Boston for a long time. I even put a deposit down on a house there just months before I was traded. I never got to move in."

Team Foligno and Team Toews completed the first trade in All-Star game history on Friday night.

Team Foligno traded Tyler Seguin to Team Toews in exchange for Phil Kessel. The joke here is that Tyler Seguin and Phil Kessel were involved in a trade between the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs in 2009. The deal originally worked out well for both teams, but Seguin has since been traded to Dallas. If anything, Friday's trade will be seen as one of the funniest moments of this year's All-Star weekend.

Travis Morin has inked a two-way, two-year contract extension with Dallas.

Morin has 14 goals and 31 points in 30 AHL contests this season. The 31-year-old is a career minor leaguer who might get the odd, brief stint in the NHL going forward.
Jan 23 - 4:27 PM

Erik Cole is viewed as a possible trade candidate for the Stars.

He can become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the year and it's unclear at this time if Dallas plans to keep him. Cole is out right now with an upper-body injury, but prior to getting hurt he had been playing his best hockey of the year on a line with Jason Spezza and Ales Hemsky.

Ray Whitney announced that he has decided to hang up his skates.

Whitney is bringing an end to a 1,330 game career that involved stints with the San Jose Sharks, Edmonton Oilers, Florida Panthers, Columbus Blue Jackets, Detroit Red Wings, Carolina Hurricanes, Phoenix Coyotes, and Dallas Stars. Along the way he won the Stanley Cup with Carolina in 2006 and surpassed the 70-point mark on five separate occasions. He will finish with 385 goals and 1,064 career points. His point total puts him in 63rd place on the NHL's all-time leaderboard, ahead of Joe Mullen and just behind Keith Tkachuk.

Jamie Oleksiak will report to AHL Texas.

Oleksiak has a goal and eight points in 38 contests in 2014-15. He might get summoned following the All-Star break.
Jan 21 - 12:50 PM

The Dallas Stars have sent Jyrki Jokipakka to the minors.

Jokipakka has five assists in 19 games with Dallas this season. The Stars aren't scheduled to play again until Jan. 27.

Erik Cole sustained an upper-body injury in Tuesday's loss to Boston.

He exited the game after just 3:12 of playing time. Coach Lindy Ruff said afterward that Cole could be sidelined for "period of time" that's probably longer than shorter. Cole had been surging offensively with seven goals and six assists in his previous 13 games.

Vernon Fiddler scored the only Dallas goal in a 3-1 loss to the Bruins on Tuesday night.

Fiddler's sixth goal of the season opened the scoring in the contest, but the Bruins answered back with three straight tallies, which the Stars never countered. Jason Spezza and Jason Demers drew assists on Fiddler's marker.
Jan 21 - 2:19 AM

Kari Lehtonen was beaten for three goals on 27 shots in a 3-1 defeat against the Bruins on Tuesday.

The Bruins are a tough draw for any goaltender at the moment, given how well they have played, but that's not much consolation for his fantasy owners. His 19-10-7 record is complemented by a .903 save percentage and a 2.97 GAA.
Jan 21 - 2:17 AM

David Schlemko will be a healthy scratch against Boston on Tuesday night.

Schlemko has suited up just twice for Dallas, deflating any potential fantasy value.
Jan 20 - 8:28 PM

Vernon Fiddler will play his 700th career game Tuesday night against Boston.

Now in his 12th season, the undrafted Edmonton, AB native has put together a fine career as a bottom-six center. Fiddler has scored 82 goals and 220 points while playing for Nashville, Phoenix, and is now in his fourth season with Dallas.
Jan 20 - 8:24 PM

Kari Lehtonen gets the start against Boston on Tuesday night.

Lehtonen comes in with a 19-9-7 record and a 2.98 GAA to go along with a .904 save percentage through 38 games this season. He leads the league with 107 goals against, but Dallas sits just four points back of the second Wild Card slot. In four starts versus Boston while with Dallas, Lehtonen is 2-2-0 with 10 goals against.
Jan 20 - 8:15 PM

Patrick Eaves (ankle) has declared himself ready to return.

The Stars reassigned Curtis McKenzie to AHL Texas on Tuesday to make room for Eaves, but right now he's still listed on the team's injured reserve list and it isn't clear if he'll play Tuesday night. Eaves has been sidelined since Dec. 2 because of an ankle injury.
Jan 20 - 2:19 PM

Curtis McKenzie has been returned to the AHL.

He has one goal and 19 penalty minutes in 14 games with Dallas this season. McKenzie has been much more productive in the minors, with 13 points in 16 matches. Patrick Eaves is expected to return Tuesday, which led to McKenzie's demotion.
