Dallas Stars afternoon update: Jere Lehtinen close to returning

New, comments

Mike Heika reports in from practice today with some encouraging news. Jere Lehtinen skated hard with the team and appears ready to play tomorrow night against Vancouver. Interestingly, Dave Tippett shuffled some players around in the anticipation of Lehtinen's return. Here are the lines today at practice as reported by Heika:

Ott-Ribeiro-Eriksson

Morrison-Modano-Lehtinen

Neal-Sutherby-Conner

Barch-Begin-Wilson

He also adds that Brunnstrom is close as well and could replace Conner on the third line.

What are your thoughts on the line combinations for when Lehtinen returns?
