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.

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.

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.

Jiri Hudler is expected to see time on the Stars' power play this year.

"He has a history of being good on the power play, he has a history of playing well in the top six, so we think he has a chance to be a real fit here," GM Jim Nill said. Hudler could see time with Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin this year, but in Monday's preseason opener he played alongside Jason Spezza and Patrick Sharp. He is shaping up to be a good value pick late in drafts.

Veteran Jiri Hudler scored a goal and assisted on another in the Dallas Stars' 3-1 exhibition victory Monday night over the St. Louis Blues.

Hudler's linemate, Patrick Sharp, contributed two assists. Patrik Nemeth and Patrick Eaves scored the Stars' other two goals. Kevin Shattenkirk had the Blues' goal. Kari Lehtonen stopped nine of 10 shots for Dallas. His replacement, Maxime Legace, was a perfect 14-for-14. Ville Husso made seven of eight saves for St. Louis. Carter Hutton came in for Husso and turned aside 21 of the 23 shots he faced.

Radek Faksa (concussion) skated with the Stars on Monday, but he was wearing a no-contact jersey.

A previous report suggested that Faksa would practice on Tuesday, so perhaps he'll take some contact at that time. He sustained the injury while representing the Czech Republic in the World Cup.

Ottawa Senators GM Pierre Dorion has indicated that signing free agent defender Kris Russell is under consideration.

The 29-year-old defender is looking to cash in on his free agent, and somewhat lauded, shot-blocking status. Russell has blocked at least 201 shots each of the last four seasons while averaging over 23 minutes a night and 25 points a season. The Sens meanwhile have just over $6M in cap space, which could increase by another $4.65M depending on what happens with Clarke MacArthur.

Radek Faksa (concussion) will return to Stars' practice on Tuesday.

Great news for the youngster and Dallas, who is already dealing with a rash of early injuries to their forward corps. Faksa had a nice rookie campaign last season, posting 12 points in 45 games. Still just 22-years-old, he's a nice pick in super deep pools.

Ales Hemsky will miss the next seven-to-10 days with a groin injury.

Not an ideal start to the campaign, but at least the veteran forward won't miss much time. Since joining Dallas two seasons ago, Hemsky has posted 24 goals and 71 points while missing just 13 games.

We now know how much time Devin Shore will miss with his ankle injury, it'll be "a couple of weeks."

Not the worst time to miss a couple of weeks, but the 22-year-old was surely looking to make an impact out of the gate. Instead, his season will be on a slight delay. Shore posted 19 goals and 32 points in 42 games with AHL Texas over the last two seasons, but he's not yet scored with the big boys in just three appearances.
Sep 25 - 1:52 PM

The Stars will likely still be in a job share situation in net to begin the 2016-17 season.

Probably not the news poolies want to hear. It seems as if Dallas coach Lindy Ruff is still confident with his tandem of Kari Lehtonen and Antti Niemi despite significant inconsistency last season. Is it just us, or does a Ben Bishop trade to Dallas just make too much sense?
Sep 25 - 10:58 AM

Devin Shore is set to miss "some time", according to Stars coach Lindy Ruff.

The 22-year-old Shore hasn't proven much yet in the Stars organization. He may have 19 goals and 32 points in 42 games with AHL Texas over the last two seasons, but he's done squat up with the big boys. No word yet on the type or severity of his injury yet, but we'll keep you posted.
Sep 24 - 2:38 PM

Cody Eakin will miss the next six weeks with a knee injury.

The six week mark puts Eakin's return in early November. The 25-year-old is coming off three straight seasons of at least 16 goals and 35 points. However he's also seen his raw shot attempt totals drop sharply in that time, so we wouldn't put a lot of stock into him when he does come back unless your pool is especially deep.
Sep 24 - 2:34 PM

Jamie Benn will likely sit out the first few games of the preseason.

Benn underwent surgery on a core muscle and although he's able to participate in practices, the Stars don't want to rush him into (meaningless) game action. The 27-year-old has been one of the best point producing forwards over the last few seasons and that shouldn't change in 2016-17. He scored 41 goals and 89 points in 82 games last season.
Sep 24 - 10:55 AM

Look for Curtis McKenzie to stick with the Dallas Stars this season.

He's been more of a minor league player during his professional career, but the 25-year-old has a pretty good shot of making the team this year. McKenzie played just three games in the NHL last season and he failed to record a point. Even if he sticks with the Stars, he won't have any fantasy value in standard leagues.
