Stars' Wyatt Johnston: Assists in consecutive contests
Johnston notched an assist, four shots on goal and two PIM in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Avalanche.
Johnston set up a Logan Stankoven tally a minute into the game. That's the second game in a row the two young forwards have connected for a goal. Johnston has a career-high 42 points through 61 outings in his sophomore season, and he's added 145 shots on net and 28 PIM while seeing mainly third-line minutes.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Jason Robertson: Provides helper Tuesday
Robertson notched an assist and four shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Avalanche.
Robertson helped out on Logan Stankoven's tally a minute into the game. The 24-year-old Robertson has had a bit of a modest February with eight points over 12 outings. He's up to 58 points, 174 shots on net and a plus-12 rating through 61 appearances this season. The winger should continue to provide steady offense, but he's lacked explosiveness this season -- he's logged 14 multi-point efforts, with only one of them being a three-point game.... See More ...

Stars' Logan Stankoven: Scores early in loss
Stankoven scored a goal in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Avalanche.
Stankoven has scored in consecutive contests, with his tally Tuesday coming a minute into the game. The 21-year-old has three points, six shots on net, five hits and a plus-1 rating over three NHL appearances. Stankoven has quickly found chemistry with Wyatt Johnston, which could be a valuable development as the Stars deal with Tyler Seguin (lower body) being out week-to-week.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Jake Oettinger: Yields five goals in loss
Oettinger stopped 22 of 27 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Avalanche.
The Stars scored at the one-minute mark, but it was all Avalanche after that. Oettinger gave up three goals in the second period to effectively end the Stars' chances of a comeback push. The 25-year-old has surrendered four or more goals in four of his last 12 outings, though he's gone 8-2-2 in that span. Oettinger's at 21-11-4 with a 2.98 GAA and a .901 save percentage through 37 games this season. The Stars have another tough matchup ahead when they host the Jets on Thursday.... See More ...

Stars' Nils Lundkvist : Not available Tuesday
Lundkvist (concussion) won't play Tuesday versus the Avalanche, Ryan Boulding of NHL.com reports.
Head coach Pete DeBoer said that Jani Hakanpaa (upper body) returning was the only change among his skaters from the group that lost 3-2 in overtime to the Islanders on Monday. Lundkvist will be out for his seventh straight game, but there's a sense he's getting close to being available. The Stars are back home Thursday versus the Jets.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Jani Hakanpaa: Set to return
Hakanpaa (upper body) is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday versus the Avalanche, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.
Derrick Pouliot was reassigned to AHL Texas earlier Tuesday, clearing out a spot in the lineup for Hakanpaa. Look for Hakanpaa to play on the second pairing as a physical and defensive presence. He had two assists over his first six games in February prior to the injury.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Derrick Pouliot: Loaned to AHL
Pouliot was assigned to AHL Texas on Tuesday.
Pouliot has picked up five shots on goal, five blocked shots and four hits in five NHL appearances this season. His return to the minors suggests that the Stars could get back Jani Hakanpaa (upper body) or Nils Lundkvist (concussion) for Tuesday's matchup versus Colorado.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Thomas Harley: Supplies power-play helper
Harley notched a power-play assist and two PIM in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders.
Harley snapped a three-game point drought with the helper. He set up Matt Duchene for the Stars' first tally in the game. While he probably won't push for anything near a point-per-game pace, Harley has been incredibly strong in his first full NHL campaign. He's at 35 points (six on the power play) with 108 shots on net, 104 blocked shots and a plus-18 rating through 57 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Wyatt Johnston: Offers helper
Johnston notched an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders.
Johnston set up fellow youngster Logan Stankoven's first NHL goal at 18:17 of the second period. It's a glimpse into the future for the Stars, though Johnston is already an established key part of the NHL roster. The 20-year-old has nine points through 11 outings in February and has matched his rookie-year production with 41 points through 60 appearances. Johnston has added 141 shots on net and a plus-1 rating this season while filling a middle-six role.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Matt Duchene: Earns 800th career point
Duchene scored a power-play goal in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders.
Duchene had gone three games without a point entering Monday, his longest drought since late December. The goal was the 33-year-old's 800th career point, a mark he achieved in his 1,034th game. This season has been a resurgent one for Duchene, who is up to 23 tallies, 56 points, 120 shots on net and a plus-16 rating through 58 appearances. He's virtually mirroring his scoring production from last year with a quarter of the campaign to go, though it'll be interesting to see how Duchene adapts while Tyler Seguin (lower body) is out....

Stars' Logan Stankoven: Grabs first two NHL points
Stankoven tallied a goal and added an assist in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders.
Playing in his second NHL game, Stankoven picked up his first NHL point on Matt Duchene's power-play tally in the second period before adding his first goal later in the frame, beating Ilya Sorokin with a wrister to tie the game 2-2. Stankoven, a second-round pick in 2021, has displayed plenty of offensive promise, tallying 24 goals and 57 points in 47 games with AHL Texas this year. He'll get an extended look in the NHL with Tyler Seguin (lower body) out week-to-week.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Falls in OT
Wedgewood allowed three goals on 28 shots in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders.
Wedgewood was solid Monday, holding the Islanders to single goals in the first and second periods before ultimately surrendering the game-winning tally to Bo Horvat in the extra frame. The 31-year-old Wedgewood hasn't earned a win since Jan. 20 -- he's gone 0-2-2 with an .899 save percentage in his subsequent six appearances. Overall, Wedgewood is 13-6-5 with an .899 save percentage and 2.97 GAA while backing up Jake Oettinger this season. Oettinger will likely be back between the pipes Tuesday when the Stars visit Colorado.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Jake Oettinger: Slated to start Tuesday
Oettinger is expected to defend the road net Tuesday versus Colorado, per Mike Heika of the Stars' official site.
Oettinger will get the second half of Dallas's back-to-back after Scott Wedgewood plays Monday versus the Islanders. The 25-year-old Oettinger has a 21-10-4 record this season with one shutout, a 2.92 GAA and a .903 save percentage over 35 appearances. The Avalanche rank third in the league this campaign with 3.63 goals per contest.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Tyler Seguin: Deemed week-to-week
Seguin (lower body) is considered week-to-week, Stars' radio host Owen Newkirk reports.
Seguin had been playing through a lingering injury for a while before the issue worsened recently. As a result, he will miss some additional time after sitting out Saturday's 2-1 win over Carolina. Logan Stankoven will get a longer look in the NHL following his recall from AHL Texas on Monday. Seguin has 20 goals, 45 points and 129 shots on net over 58 games this season.... See More ...

Stars' Nils Lundkvist : Still sidelined
Lundkvist (concussion) won't be available for Monday's game versus the Islanders, Brian Rea of Bally Sports Southwest reports.
Although Lundkvist will miss a sixth straight contest Monday, he's reportedly close to returning, suggesting he could be back as soon as Tuesday against the Avalanche or Thursday versus the Jets. The 23-year-old Swede has picked up 15 points while averaging only 15:08 of ice time per game through 43 contests this campaign.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Facing Islanders
Wedgewood will patrol the home crease Monday against the Islanders, per Brian Rea of Bally Sports Southwest.
Wedgewood stopped 25 of 28 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders on Jan. 21. He has earned a 13-6-4 record this campaign with a 2.97 GAA and an .899 save percentage through 26 games played. The Islanders are 23rd in the league this season with 2.91 goals per contest.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Jani Hakanpaa: Not ready to return Monday
Hakanpaa (upper body) will not be in the lineup versus the Islanders on Monday, Brian Rea of Bally Sports Southwest reports.
With Dallas heading into a back-to-back, Hakanpaa seems unlikely to be in action versus the Avs on Tuesday either, though he hasn't been officially ruled out. Prior to his four-game absence, the 31-year-old defenseman was goalless in 14 straight while adding two assists, 15 shots on net, 48 hits and 39 blocked shots in that span. Derrick Pouliot should continue to play with Hakanpaa and Nils Lundkvist (concussion) both still unavailable.... See More ... See Less
