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

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.

— Coyotes GM Don Maloney on defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson
