Ott to sit with back spasms
The Stars will be without forward Steve Ott for Thursday's game against the San Jose Sharks at American Airlines Center due to back spasms.
DALLAS  -- The Dallas Stars will be without forward Steve Ott for Thursday's game against the San Jose Sharks at American Airlines Center due to back spasms.

Ott missed the morning skate with what Dallas coach Glen Gulutzan called an illness. Gulutzan said Ott had been fighting an illness during Dallas’ recent three-game swing through Western Canada but he was able to play in all three contests.
   
Ott had played 50 consecutive games for Dallas after missing six straight games in November due to a lower-body injury. He has 10 goals and 33 points in 66 games for the Stars this season.
Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
