I talked to a couple of people with the Stars today, and this is basically the information I got (although it's not easy to get information right now on injuries with this team).
Nicklas Grossman suffered a knee injury of some sort on Saturday. Grossman missed 11 games with a hip injury and was playing his fifth game since returning on Saturday when he left the game in the first period. However, this new injury had nothing to do with the hip and appears to be a twisted knee. He will not get a full evaluation until Monday, so the Stars will have better information at that time.
Karlis Skrastins was cut by a skate blade on the thigh that may have penetrated some muscle. He had some stitches, but the real concern is about the muscle.
Both will potentially be out when the Stars play host to the Ducks on Wednesday to end this seven-game homestand.
Mark Fistric would draw into the lineup if either is out, and then the Stars would be able to call up one defenseman from the Texas Stars on an emergency basis. The Stars only get four non-emergency ``call-ups'' from Feb. 28 on, and they have already used two (one on Tomas Vincour and one on Brandon Segal). So they would like to only call up players on an emergency basis for right now.
The Texas Stars are healthy and getting ready to start a five-game homestand of their own, so there are lots of options available when it comes to defense.
The front office will probably wait until Monday to make a move.
Loui Eriksson, who suffered an upper body injury on a hit to the head on Tuesday, skated again. He is progressing and might be available for Wednesday's game. But he would have to go through a full practice before he can be considered game ready, so Monday and Tuesday will be important. Adam Burish (lower body) has not skated yet. He has missed the last four games after suffering an injury from a blocked shot. Brian Sutherby also has a lower body injury, and his status is questionable.
The Stars appear to have enough forwards right now. It's their defense that is a concern.
After an off-day Sunday, the Stars will have a light optional practice in Frisco on Monday and should have a full practice in Frisco on Tuesday.
