Miro Heiskanen News
Dallas Stars defenseman Miro Heiskanen made a big impact offensively in Thursday's meeting with Ottawa, scoring two goals with four shots in a 4-3 overtime victory. He put the team 2-0 up early on, reaching five goals for the season. Heiskanen led all skaters in ice time with 28:32 and added one block to his line. The 23-year-old has recently had a scoring spurt, which has helped him to get to 21 points for the season. In 24 games played, Heiskanen hasn't shied away from dirty work either, logging 18 hits with 30 blocks.
Dallas Stars defenseman Miro Heiskanen notched a pair of assists in his return from an upper-body injury Tuesday night. He helped the team to a 5-2 victory over L.A., registering a power-play assist on a Jason Robertson marker and an even-strength assist on Tyler Seguin's third goal of the year. The two goals were separated by just over a minute in the second period and ended up playing a huge role in the match, with Dallas turning a tie into a multi-goal lead. Heiskanen, who missed three games, was eased into action and logged only 19:15 minutes. He made good use of his minutes, though, adding four shots and a block to his stat line. The star defenseman now boasts three points, 15 shots, five hits and eight blocks for the season with a plus-six rating in six games.
Dallas Stars defenseman Miro Heiskanen (upper body) will sit out a second consecutive game Thursday against Washington. The Finnish workhorse is carrying an upper-body injury since the start of this week and is considered day-to-day. Joel Hanley has entered the lineup in Heiskanen's absence and Nils Lundkvist has started to ride with the first power-play unit in his place. He led the team with 3:17 of power-play time in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Boston. Lundkvist's start to the campaign hasn't gone too well since he forced a trade from the Rangers, but he's a great talent and could be ready to make noise Thursday against a team that boasts a lowly 73.7 percent penalty-killing efficiency.
Dallas Stars defenseman Miro Heiskanen (upper body) did not play Tuesday against the Boston Bruins. The young blue-liner is listed as day-to-day, and the injury is undisclosed. Heiskanen was a popular breakout candidate in fantasy drafts this year due to the departure of John Klingberg, which lined him up for more power-play time. However, Heiskanen has just a goal and two assists in six games this year, with only one of those points coming on the power play. Nils Lundkvist took over the first power play in Heiskanen's absence and could see more time with that unit if he continues to performs well.
