Projected lineup for Stars vs. Predators

Christopher Nilstorp is set to make his fifth start of the season when the Dallas Stars visit the Nashville Predators on Monday night.

Goalie Kari Lehtonen took part in the morning skate, but won't dress. Lehtonen, who remains on injured reserve as he recovers from a groin injury, is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Stars will also get defenseman Trevor Daley back after he missed the past two games with a neck injury. Additionally, Matt Fraser will make his season debut.

Here's how the lineup could look for Dallas:

Brenden Morrow - Jamie Benn - Jaromir Jagr

Matt Fraser - Derek Roy - Loui Eriksson

Reilly Smith - Cody Eakin - Michael Ryder

Eric Nystrom - Vernon Fiddler - Ryan Garbutt

Brenden Dillon - Stephane Robidas

Jordie Benn - Trevor Daley

Alex Goligoski - Jamie Oleksiak

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
