Stars' Dillon out for game against Lightning because of lower-body injury

DALLAS - Dallas Stars defenceman Brenden Dillon will not play Saturday afternoon against the Tampa Bay Lightning because of a lower-body injury.

The Stars listed him day to day.

Dillon scored the game-winning goal in Thursday's 4-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes. He leads Dallas with 128 hits and two short-handed goals. His plus-16 rating at home also leads the Stars.

Aaron Rome, who did not dress for the three previous games, would take Dillon's place on the active roster Saturday.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
