Stars put veteran forward Ray Whitney on reserve with lower-body injury

FRISCO, Texas - The Dallas Stars have placed forward Ray Whitney on injured reserve with a lower-body injury.

The 41-year-old Whitney has played in all 17 games and is third on the team with seven assists. He is third among active players with 1,278 games.

Whitney was injured in a 5-2 loss to the Blackhawks on Saturday.

Dallas recalled Travis Morin from the Texas Stars of the AHL to take Whitney's spot. Morin leads the AHL with 24 points (10 goals, 14 assists). He has three career NHL games with Dallas.

The Stars play at Edmonton on Wednesday night.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
