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 on Friday. Morrow wasn't immediately certain if he'll be able to play in Saturday's game against the Boston Bruins.
"I know it's a big game, so it's going to take something serious to keep me out of it," Morrow said. "That being said, I don't know how serious this is. It's on my knee, a knee that has given me problems this year and the MCL is a big factor in skating stride, but we'll do our best to try to maintain it and keep the swelling down and hopefully be ready."
Morrow has collected seven goals, 10 assists and 63 penalty minutes in 30 games this se...

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...
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...
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...
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...
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 forward Brenden Morrow left Thursday's game with the Columbus Blue Jackets early in the third period with a lower-body injury and will not return.
DALLAS (AP) -- The Dallas Stars have activated goaltender Kari Lehtonen from injured reserve after he missed 12 games with a lower-body injury.

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...
Stars' Kari Lehtonen stops 25 shots, allows four goals in return from injury in loss to Blue Jackets.

New Year's Eve gets some early fireworks tonight as the Stars host the Boston Bruins, only the best team in the league. In recent years this matchup has provided fights fights and more fights, culminating in a game last year in Boston where...
DALLAS -- For an idea of what the Bruins are facing in every game they play, listen to rookie Dallas Stars coach Glen Gulutzan, looking ahead after the morning skate to tonight's B's-Stars New Year's Eve tilt: “I think it’s going to be exciting for the fans in Dallas, but ...
Stars goaltender Kari Lehtonen said it took some time for him to get comfortable in his return to action following a layoff caused by a groin injury.
