Add Mattias Janmark to the list of injured Dallas Stars. Janmark, who appeared to be in the lineup for Wednesday night's preseason game in Colorado didn't play, and then didn't take the ice for practice Thursday morning in Frisco.
"He's going to miss today, and we'll have an update later," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said when asked about Janmark's status. "[It's] injury related."
Just moments after Ruff gave that update, Janmark, who was apparently injured in Wednesday's pregame skate, was seen at the Stars practice facility on crutches. As of Thursday afternoon, there was no further update.
Janmark joins a long list of Stars players battling injuries in training camp. Ruff said some on the list are making progress.
"Everybody is better, I can tell you that," Ruff said. "It's a process. [Cody] Eakin (knee) is a long ways away. But the other guys - [Devin] Shore (ankle), [Ales] Hemsky (groin] and [Tyler] Seguin (heel) - all those guys are getting better. Every day they are getting closer. I can see light at the end of the tunnel."
