Only nine days after being acquired by the Dallas Stars, center Derek Roy had shoulder surgery and will be out until November. According to Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News, Roy, who was added in a trade that sent Steve Ott and Adam Pardy over to the Buffalo Sabres, had the procedure done Wednesday in Dallas. Heika reported Wednesday that Roy was cleared medically for the trade, but upon a more intense physical in Dallas, it was revealed that surgery was needed. "He played through it before and he could have played through it again, but we want the best Derek Roy we can get," Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk told Heika. "It was a group decision, and we felt this was the best decision." Roy hurt himself in the preseason last year but played through the injury. He is in the final year of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Morrow, Ghostbuster

The 2011-12 season was one that Dallas Stars captain Brenden Morrow would just as soon forget. The 33-year-old power forward was limited to 57 games and 11 goals due to a neck problem (which also caused pain in his shoulders and upper back) that also rendered him much less effective on the ice. Morrow, who has scored 20-plus goals seven times in his career and scored 33 in 2010...

Ty Anderson: Bruins sign veteran Exelby, re-up final two RFAs
