It’s hockey fights cancer night, and the Stars are running a Lego donation drive to benefit children’s hospitals in the area.
Lineup from morning skate:
Jamie Benn - Tyler Seguin - Alexander Radulov
Devin Shore - Jason Spezza - Roope Hintz
Valeri Nichushkin - Radek Faksa - Tyler Pitlick
Mattias Janmark - Jason Dickinson - Blake Comeau
Esa Lindell - Miro Heiskanen
Gavin Bayreuther - Roman Polak
Joel Hanley - Taylor Fedun
Anton Khudobin in net.
Ben Bishop was placed on IR to make a roster space for Shore’s return tonight. He’ll be eligible to come off IR on Monday, as it was retroactive to his going out with injury. Taylor Fedun replaces Ben Gleason on the blueline tonight in a roster move the Stars made on Thanksgiving day.
Julius Honka is a healthy scratch, with head coach Jim Montgomery telling the assembled media after morning skate that he needs consistency and to think the game faster the way the Stars are trying to play.
