Flames keeping rookie Sean Monahan

Sean Monahan will remain with the Calgary Flames this season instead of being returned to his junior club. A junior-eligible player is allowed to play up to nine games in the NHL without costing the team a year of his entry-level contract. Monahan has six goals and three assists in his first nine games. ''We feel good about the decision we've made,'' general...

Flames veteran Lee Stempniak off to quick start

Monahan-mania is showing the Calgary Flames and their fans kids are all right. Lee Stempniak is happy to show that those on the other side of age 30 can be a big part of the Flames fortunes too. And maybe even part of the future. Stempniak has been tagged his whole career as a streaky scorer. So far this season the right winger has a pair of four-game point-scoring streaks which...

Stars put Aaron Rome on waivers; roster move pending

On Wednesday morning, the Dallas Stars announced they had placed defenseman Aaron Rome, who has yet to play an NHL game this season, on waivers. Rome, 30, played 27 games for Dallas last season, finishing with five points (0-5-5) and was a minus-2. Rome had recently returned from a conditioning assignment with the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League and practiced with the...

Stars working on cleaning up issues at blue line

FRISCO, Texas -- For all the changes the Dallas Stars made this offseason, whether it would be hiring a new general manager, head coach, acquiring a number of new players or unveiling a new logo and color scheme, one area where there weren't many changes was at the blue line. In fact, the Stars made just one change to the back, acquiring veteran defenseman Sergei Gonchar from...

Stars’ Ryan Garbutt suspended five games for charging

Dallas Stars forward Ryan Garbutt has been suspended by the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety for five games, without pay, for charging Anaheim Ducks forward Dustin Penner during Sunday’s game. Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, Garbutt will lose $14,743.60, based on his average annual salary. The post Stars’ Ryan Garbutt suspended...

Stars’ defenseman Goligoski practices as forward on fourth line

Could defenseman Alex Goligoski be moving to forward for the Stars? Photo: Ronald Martinez, GI To say the least, Dallas Stars defenseman Alex Goligoski has enjoyed a less-than-stellar start to the 2013-14 NHL season. Through eight games, he has 0 points and has a hideous -10 rating- dead last in the NHL. Not exactly what the Stars want from their highest paid defenseman (Goligoski...

Stars’ Erik Cole misses practice, out day-to-day

Dallas Stars forward Erik Cole sat out practice earlier today and is listed as day-to-day, as reported by Mark Stepneski of Stars Inside Edge. The nature of the injury remains undisclosed. Until we find out more about what is ailing the winger, it’s difficult to determine for how long he will be out of the lineup. Cole has played in all eight of the team’s games so far this season...

Stars' Garbutt suspended five games for charging

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and based on his average annual salary Garbutt will forfeit $14743...

Stars too much for Flames

Alex Chiasson didn't see his tiebreaking goal go in Thursday night. Neither did Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff. More important, the referees didn't see the puck hit the net. At the other end of the ice, though, Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen saw the goal scored, and stopped the puck when it came to him. On review, the goal was ruled good. That started Dallas toward three goals...

Colin Dambrauskas: Calgary Flames: To Keep Monahan or Not!?...Phoenix Post Game Thoughts

Follow Colin on Twitter!: @ColinDJD The Calgary Flames faced the Phoenix Coyotes last night after a strong game against the LA Kings the night before. With one game remaining, the Flames will look to finish their five game road trip Thursday night in Dallas. As mentioned, after playing a physical game which was a good test for the Flames, the team came off to a rather slow...

Stars win 5-1 over the Flames

Kari Lehtonen is like a can of “Flex Seal.” Y’know Flex Seal. Flex Seal the miracle in a can that will glue your gutter fix your flowerpots and repair your roof. Flex Seal. Truth be told Lehtonen is probably closer to 132 cans of Flex Seal for his leaky team. And when they dragged their boat off the trailer with a screen door on the hull Thursday night against Calgary the...

Flames-Stars Preview

Kari Lehtonen's injury has had a big effect on the Dallas Stars, whose goaltending has been sorely lacking in his absence. They expect him back Thursday night when they host the Calgary Flames, who have several players that have had success against Dallas recently. The Stars (3-5-0) have been without Lehtonen since a 4-1 win at Winnipeg on Oct. 11, which he left due to a lower...

Ruff juggles D-pairs, puts Nichushkin on top line for the day

Lots to read into practice today so a fun day for speculation. First the news. Ryan Garbutt will travel to New York for a 10 a.m. CDT meeting Wednesday with the Department of Player Safety to discuss his hit on Dustin Penner in Sunday’s 6-3 loss to the Anaheim Ducks. The fact Garbutt is being called in person almost guarantees a suspension. Garbutt will travel with Stars GM...

Bill Meltzer: Star Gazing: Ruff Takes Struggling Goligoski Off Blueline

After the Dallas Stars suffered their fourth loss in five games, head coach Lindy Ruff suggested to the media that there could be some lineup changes coming. He was particularly unhappy with some of what he's seen on the blueline. Today at practice, per Stars beat writer Mike Heika and official website writer Andrew Stepneski, Ruff did indeed shake up his defensive pairings...
