Stars expected to have Roy back vs. Avalanche

Derek Roy is expected to return to the Dallas Stars lineup Monday night in Colorado after missing the five previous games with a groin injury.

Roy had two assists and a plus-1 rating in four games before leaving the lineup with his injury.

The Stars also announced that goalie Cris Nilstorp was activated from injured reserve and along with Jordie Benn was assigned to the Texas Stars, Dallas' American Hockey League affiliate.

Quote of the Day

Obviously he's been my favorite goalie since I grew up. He's kind of close to my hometown so I've been watching him my whole life. It's a pretty special moment for me to score two goals on Lundqvist in such an important game as this.
