Miro Heiskanen News
Dallas Stars defenseman Miro Heiskanen (personal) will return to the lineup on Tuesday versus the Rangers. He missed Monday's matchup against Boston for the birth of his first child. With Jani Hakanpaa (upper body) also out of the lineup, the Stars found themselves in a rough spot on Monday, but Heiskanen's return should lift the spirit around the team. The 24-year-old is very influential on the blue line and leads all skaters on the team with an average ice time of 24:55. In 45 outings this season, Heiskanen has produced 33 points (six goals, 27 assists) with 104 shots on net, 34 hits, and 64 blocks.
Dallas Stars defenseman Miro Heiskanen (lower body) will return to the lineup Thursday night against the visiting Anaheim Ducks. The smooth-skating blue-liner has missed the past 10 games after suffering his injury in the third period of an overtime loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Jan. 4. He skated on a pair with Thomas Harley on Thursday morning. The 24-year-old is having another stellar season with four goals and 27 points across 37 games after producing a hefty 73 points across 79 contests a season ago. His 25:03 of average ice time per game this season is tops on the Stars and ranks him seventh among all NHL skaters. The Stars went 6-3-1 in their No. 1 defenseman's absence and sit third in the Central Division with a 28-13-6 record.
Dallas Stars defenseman Miro Heiskanen (lower body) will be out for a while with a lower-body injury he sustained in Thursday's game against the Colorado Avalanche. While the news is somewhat positive, the fact that Heiskanen doesn't need surgery is terrific, it still isn't ideal for the Stars as they will be without their best defenseman for at least a week. Without him, Dallas will likely deploy Thomas Harley on the first powerplay unit, a spot he could excel in. He is a priority pickup in leagues where he is available, especially for those who just lost Heiskanen.
Dallas Stars defenseman Miro Heiskanen picked up a lower-body injury in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to Colorado. He exited the action early in the third period after crashing into Stars goaltender Scott Wedgewood. Heiskanen finished with 14:58 of ice time and had one assist in the contest, which Dallas lost after blowing a two-goal lead in the third period. The Finnish rearguard is a huge presence at the back for the Stars, and the team will be desperate for some good news as evaluations on Heiskanen continue on Friday. Heiskanen has collected 27 points (three goals, 24 assists) in 37 outings this season.
