Heika: Dallas Stars to Recall Ivan Vishnevskiy From AHL

New, comments

Per Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News, the Dallas Stars are expected to recall Ivan Vishnevskiy and place Mark Fistric on retroactive injured reserve.

They didn't practice today, so I'm not sure if one of their defensemen is hurt or if they simply want an extra body around or if they will take one of the defensemen out of the lineup and insert Vishnevskiy. I guess it's even a possibility that they play seven defensemen with 11 forwards.

We'll find all of that out in the morning and see what the plan is for San Jose on Monday night.

Is there a chance that the Dallas Stars sit Matt Niskanen as a healthy scratch and play Ivan Vishnevskiy in his place? Niskanen saw his minutes significantly cut in the win against the Red Wings, and Vishnevskiy has the ability to slide directly into the role of point defenseman on the power play.
