We talked about it on Twitter 3 hours ago but we should put it in this space too just in case: Steve Ott will not play tonight. He is expected to go on Friday. Gulutzan said Ott was pleading to get in but they feel it's best to wait one more game. Meanwhile Alex Goligoski, already known to be out with a broken thumb, was placed on IR officially today retroactive to the 11th. This will allow Philip Larsen to remain on the roster whenever the Stars officially active Steve Ott from IR.
