  • Stars' Chris Tanev: Dealing with tendon injury

    Tanev is recovering from a tendon injury, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports Friday.

    Tanev had two goals, 19 points, 24 PIM, 45 hits and 207 blocks in 75 regular-season outings between Calgary and Dallas in 2023-24. He also recorded two assists, 30 hits and 73 blocks across 19 playoff contests with the Stars. The 34-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent in July, so depending on the severity of his injury, it might complicate his contract negotiations over the summer.

  • Stars' Jani Hakanpaa: Recovering from knee injury

    Hakanpaa's lower-body injury is a knee issue that required an arthroscopic procedure, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports Friday.

    Hakanpaa didn't play past March 16 because of the injury. He had two goals, 12 points, 33 PIM, 196 hits and 123 blocks in 64 regular-season outings in 2023-24. Although there isn't a specific timetable for Hakanpaa's recovery, he's not expected to need further knee procedures.

  • Stars' Emilio Pettersen: Signs one-year deal

    Pettersen signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Stars on Thursday, per PuckPedia.

    Pettersen had 38 points in 66 AHL contests last season, but the 24-year-old has yet to make his NHL debut. He was dealt from the Flames to the Stars in a minor-league trade for Riley Damiani in March. Pettersen was a sixth-round pick in 2018 and could compete for an NHL depth role in training camp this fall.

  • Stars' Joe Pavelski: Playing days likely over

    Pavelski said Tuesday that he won't play in 2024-25 and is likely to bring an end to his 18-year NHL career, Ryan S. Clark of ESPN.com reports. "This is it for me," Pavelski said.

    While Pavelski didn't say outright that he was retiring from professional hockey, he acknowledged in his postseason exit interviews that he had known for a while that the 2023-24 season would be his last in the NHL. The second-oldest player in the NHL this past season, Pavelski remained a productive source of offense for Dallas, notching 27 goals and 40 assists while playing in all 82 contests. Before joining Dallas as a free agent in 2019, Pavelski served as a longtime captain for San Jose and represented the club in two All-Star Games. He added two more All-Star appearances to his ledger during his five seasons in Dallas and finishes his career with 476 goals and 592 assists over 1,332 regular-season games.

  • Stars' Chris Tanev: Chips in with helper

    Tanev logged an assist, four hits and two PIM in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 6.

    Tanev avoided missing time after suffering an injury in Game 4 versus the Oilers. The defenseman did his job this postseason, picking up two assists to go with 73 blocked shots, 31 hits and a plus-7 rating over 19 playoff contests. Even at 34 years old, Tanev should have a healthy market as a steady and reliable shutdown defenseman if he makes it to free agency July 1.

  • Stars' Tyler Seguin: Registers assist Sunday

    Seguin produced an assist, two shots on goal and four hits in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 6.

    Seguin finished the postseason with five goals, eight assists, 59 shots on net, 32 hits and a plus-9 rating in a top-six role for the Stars, but he went without a goal in the last five contests. The 32-year-old forward was bothered by a lower-body injury late in the regular season, and it's unclear if that was still a factor in the playoffs, though he certainly played well enough to seem fully healthy. Seguin has three years left on a contract with a $9.85 million cap hit and a no-move clause, so he's a virtual lock to reprise his top-six role with the Stars in 2024-25 even though his offense doesn't match his salary at this stage of his career.

  • Stars' Mason Marchment: Nets lone goal in loss

    Marchment scored a goal on two shots and added five hits in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 6.

    Marchment batted home a pass from Tyler Seguin while crashing the net in the third period. That goal briefly gave the Stars hope for a comeback, but a tying goal never materialized. Marchment had three goals and two assists over 13 playoff outings, though it's unclear if he had any lingering effects from an undisclosed injury he suffered in the first round. The 28-year-old winger has two years left on his current contract, so it's expected he'll around to provide grit and depth scoring in a middle-six role for the Stars in 2024-25.

  • Stars' Jake Oettinger: Falls short in Game 6

    Oettinger gave up two goals on 10 shots in Sunday's season-ending 2-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 6.

    The Oilers struck twice on the power play in the first period and then bunkered down. That left Oettinger with little to do over the final 40 minutes, but the Stars couldn't make a comeback to give their goalie a chance to be a hero. Oettinger's postseason comes to a close with a 10-9 record, a 2.24 GAA and a .915 save percentage over 19 appearances. He'll head into 2024-25 as the Stars' No. 1 goalie while playing for a new contract.

  • Stars' Jake Oettinger: Starting Sunday

    Oettinger will get the starting nod for Game 6 in Edmonton on Sunday, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.

    Oettinger has allowed seven goals on just 54 shots over his last two starts. The Oilers capitalized on this by winning both games and going up 3-2 in the series. Oettinger owns a .907 save percentage this series after posting a .918 save percentage in the first two series against Vegas and Colorado. He hasn't dropped three straight games since February.

  • Stars' Jani Hakanpaa: Unavailable Sunday

    Hakanpaa (lower body) won't be an option for Game 6 against Edmonton on Sunday, per Stars radio host Owen Newkirk .

    Hakanpaa will miss his 32nd straight contest, including his 19th consecutive playoff outing. It remains unclear when he will be ready to return to the lineup. Hakanpaa registered two goals, 12 points, 56 shots on net, 196 hits and 123 blocked shots in 64 regular-season outings during the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Stars' Logan Stankoven: Plucks apple Friday

    Stankoven logged an assist and three shots on goal in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 5.

    Stankoven has just two helpers over five contests in the Western Conference Finals after picking up four points in the second round. The 21-year-old forward is at eight points, 33 shots on net, 21 hits, 17 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating over 18 playoff outings. He'll likely continue to see middle-six minutes as the Stars look to keep their season alive in Game 6 on Sunday.

  • Stars' Thomas Harley: Helpers in consecutive games

    Harley notched an assist and blocked six shots in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 5.

    The six blocks were one off Harley's playoff high. More notably, he got on the scoresheet for the second game in a row, assisting on a Wyatt Johnston tally in the third period to break up Stuart Skinner's shutout bid. Harley has been limited to four helpers over 18 playoff outings, but he's added 50 blocks, 27 shots on net and a plus-8 rating in a top-four role.

  • Stars' Wyatt Johnston: Tips in lone goal in loss

    Johnston scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 5.

    Johnston has scored in three straight games, but the Stars have just three tallies over their last two contests. The 21-year-old is up to 10 goals, six assists, 55 shots on net, 24 hits and a plus-4 rating through 18 playoff appearances. Johnston's steady offense has made him a reliable option in fantasy in this breakout campaign.

  • Stars' Jake Oettinger: Yields three goals

    Oettinger stopped 23 of 26 shots in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 5.

    Oettinger has taken back-to-back losses for the first time since the first two games of the playoffs, and now the Stars will face elimination in Edmonton on Sunday. The Oilers' power play did most of the damage Friday, with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scoring twice in the contest after the Stars had killed off all their penalties in the first four games of the series. Oettinger's role as the starter is not in doubt, so he should be back between the pipes for Game 6.

  • Stars' Chris Tanev: Good to go Friday

    Tanev (lower body) will play Friday in Game 5 against the Oilers, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.

    Tanev was injured after blocking a shot in Game 4 on Wednesday but won't miss any additional time. He's tallied just one assist through 17 appearances this postseason.

  • Stars' Jake Oettinger: Tending twine Friday

    Oettinger will get the starting nod for Game 5 at home against Edmonton on Friday, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.

    After winning two straight games to put the Stars up 2-1 over the Oilers, Oettinger turned in his worst start of the series and one of his worst performances of the postseason in Game 4 on Wednesday. He coughed up four goals on 28 shots, lowering his postseason save percentage to .917 through 17 games. Oettinger hasn't lost two straight games since the first round of the playoffs against Vegas.
