41-year-old forward Ray Whitney back in Dallas lineup after missing 5 games with groin injury

DALLAS - Ray Whitney was back in the starting lineup for the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night after missing five games with a groin injury.

The 41-year-old left wing returned to play against Anaheim, his 1,279th career game. Whitney is in his 21st NHL season, his second with the Stars.

Whitney was hurt on Nov. 9 at Chicago in a 5-2 loss. At that point, he had played in all 17 games and was third on the team with seven assists. He was still tied for third when he got back.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
