An interesting exercise at the end of the 2011-12 NHL regular season might be to see which Stars players skated in all 82 contests. Last year, there were four Dallas players who held that distinction-Trevor Daley, Brenden Morrow, Steve Ott and Mike Ribeiro.
Of that quartet, all but Ribeiro has already missed time due to injury so far this year, something that has been a trend for this year's Stars, especially at the blue line. In fact, Dallas is currently skating with only six healthy blueliners. That's because their top pairing of veterans Stephane Robidas and Sheldon Souray are both injured.
Robidas took a puck to the skate last week during an on-ice workout the morning of last Wednesday's game with the Flyers and the most experienced member of the club's defensive corps has yet to return.
Souray suffered a lower-body injury in the second period of last Friday's win over the Predators and did not return the rest of the night. It was later learned that the D...

In the second period of Thursday's 4-1 loss to Columbus, Dallas Stars captain Brenden Morrow took a puck to his right knee. To his credit, he did try to go in the third period but his opening shift lasted just 21 seconds before he realized he was done for the night.
And after the game, Morrow was seen walking around with a noticeable limp. He did not practice today and did have...
When Dallas Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk brought in a number of new players before the start of this season, he did so with one simple goal-to make the 2011-12 Stars a team that would end the club's three-year playoff drought.
One of those players who was added during the off-season was winger Michael Ryder, a former teammate of Dallas assist man extraordinaire Mike Ribeiro during...
In a game where the Dallas Stars just got starting goaltender Kari Lehtonen back after missing 12 games due to a groin injury and a contest where the club's two most veteran defensemen Stephane Robidas and Sheldon Souray, continue to be sidelined, could Glen Gulutzan's club now be adding captain Brenden Morrow to the list of injured players?
Quite possibly. The Dallas captain...
Dallas Stars goaltender Kari Lehtonen will return to the ice for Thursday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Coach Glen Gulutzan also announced that defensemen Sheldon Souray and Stephane Robidas will be sidelined for 10-14 days apiece. Souray is nursing a sprained ankle and Robidas sustained a setback in his recovery from a foot injury.
As for Lehtonen, he'll be...
Michael Ryder was maligned at times for his play as a member of the Bruins, but the crafty forward always seemed to come up big when it mattered most. That was no more evident than in the Bruins' run to the Stanley Cup last year when Ryder saved his best work for the spring. Ryder scored a handful of clutch goals and his glove save during the first round against the Canadiens...
Dallas Stars captain Brenden Morrow exited Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets with a knee injury.
Morrow was injured in the second period after he was hit by the puck on his left knee. He attempted to return in the third, but played on only one shift and retreated to the locker room.
The 32-year-old Morrow did not return to the contest and will be re-evaluated...
DALLAS (AP) -- The Dallas Stars have activated goaltender Kari Lehtonen from injured reserve after he missed 12 games with a lower-body injury.
The Dallas Stars have activated goaltender Kari Lehtonen from injured reserve after he missed 12 games with a lower-body injury. Lehtonen led the NHL with 13 wins when he got hurt Nov. 26 in a game against Phoenix. He could be back in net Thursday night when the Stars host Columbus. Defenseman Stephane Robidas, who has missed three games with a lower-body injury, was placed on injured...
Stars' Kari Lehtonen stops 25 shots, allows four goals in return from injury in loss to Blue Jackets.
As every hockey fan knows, being a goaltender in the National Hockey League is not an easy job.
You can be great for one game, one season etc. and then the next game or season, completely lose it. Just look at what happened to the likes of Jim Carey or Blaine Lacher.
Another goaltender who has had both good times and bad is recently waived member of the Dallas Stars Andrew Raycroft...

If Kari Lehtonen wanted to try and ease his way back into the lineup, there might not be a better team to do that against than the Columbus Blue Jackets. Lethonen makes his long awaited return to the Stars lineup tonight after missing the...
