Well, here we go again with the revolving injury door. Sergei Zubov was placed on injured reserve with his hip injury (first time I've called it something other than a lower-body injury), retroactive to Nov. 28. Also, Dan Jancevski was called up from the Hamilton Bulldogs. I'm wondering if that means Stephane Robidas is absent for a game or two (at least) while he gets his teeth fixed at the dentist.
Coach Dave Tippett was asked today if Zubov was needing surgery. He said no, but that he was getting opinions from several doctors and then he and the Stars will go from there (i.e., that doesn't sound good, does it?)
Now for Jancevski: He's played 25 games for Hamilton this season, with a goal and nine assists (most of any Bulldog D-man) and 34 penalty minutes. He has played in four games with the Stars.
