Jason Dickinson has been brought up by the Dallas Stars.

He has generated 10 points in 13 games with Texas of the AHL this campaign. Dickinson scored in his only appearance with Dallas last season when he made his NHL debut against Colorado.
Dec 6 - 1:05 PM

Jiri Hudler (illness) skated Monday and could be back in the lineup soon.

"I think now it's just all about conditioning," coach Lindy Ruff said. "He's missed a tremendous amount of time, but he's got a good week ahead of him here. I don't know where he'll be by the end of the week, but I think we can get him five real good days and we'll see by the weekend where he's at." Hudler has appeared in just four games this season because of an illness and he hasn't played since Nov. 1.
Dec 6 - 11:32 AM

Johnny Oduya (lower body) might skate on Tuesday.

Oduya hasn't played since Nov. 19, but he's getting closer to rejoining the Stars. He has a goal and five points in 19 games this season.
Dec 5 - 1:36 PM

Tyler Seguin has been tweaking his shot lately.

"In Detroit I was angry about my execution, I had a lot of looks," Seguin said. "So I changed my shot a little, tried to hit it not as hard and maybe a little more accurate, and I had two good looks the last two games." That game against Detroit was the 11th straight where he failed to find the back of the net. He's scored a goal in each of the two games that followed. That gives him nine goals and 27 points in 26 contests this season.
Dec 5 - 10:57 AM

There is a good chance that Gemel Smith could be recalled from the AHL on Monday.

The Stars are short a forward due to Patrick Sharp's concussion and Smith is the most likely candidate to replace him on the roster. Of course the Stars could go in another direction, so check back with us on Monday.
Dec 4 - 12:55 PM

Tyler Seguin scored a goal and an assist as the Dallas Stars beat the Colorado Avalanche 3-0 on Saturday.

The assists were mostly there for Seguin lately, but he had been struggling a bit - at least by his terms - to find the net. Now he has a two-game goal streak and a four-game point streak (2G, 3A). Seguin has nine goals and 27 points in 26 games so far in 2016-17.
Dec 3 - 11:45 PM

For the first time during a truly miserable 2016-17 season, Kari Lehtonen generated a shutout.

Lehtonen had a pretty light Saturday, as the Dallas Stars limited the Colorado Avalanche to 23 SOG in a 3-0 win. Lehtonen came into this game on a three-game losing streak with a putrid .885 save percentage, so this could be a huge confidence-builder for the goalie and his team.
Dec 3 - 11:41 PM

Adam Cracknell will return to the Stars' lineup against the Avalanche on Saturday.

Cracknell had been scratched the past two games. He's posted three points with 31 hits in 23 games so far this season. He'll skate to the right of Curtis McKenzie and Devin Shore.
Dec 3 - 6:29 PM

Curtis McKenzie will skate on the fourth line Saturday against the Avalanche.

McKenzie has been a scratch in six of the last seven games. Through 16 games he has posted three points with 26 PIMs and 31 hits. He's slated to skate to the left of Devin Shore and Adam Cracknell.
