DALLAS -- Dallas Stars captain Brenden Morrow unexpectedly returned to the lineup for Thursday's game against Anaheim at the American Airlines Center.

Morrow, who missed Tuesday's game and Wednesday's practice with a groin problem, took part in the morning skate on Thursday, and it appeared he'd be in the lineup. But Stars coach Glen Gulutzan told the media that Morrow was definitely out against Anaheim but that he and Jamie Benn, sidelined with a wrist injury, were definite possibilities for Saturday, when the Chicago Blackhawks visit Dallas.

However, Morrow took part in the pregame skate and started the game on a line with rookie Antoine Roussel and newcomer Erik Cole, who was acquired in a February trade with Montreal for Michael Ryder.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
