Stars center Tyler Seguin, who missed Sunday’s game with concussion-like symptoms, skated prior to Monday’s practice in Frisco.
“He’s feeling a lot better,” said Stars coach Lindy Ruff. “He came in today, they went through the process. He was good enough to go out and skate, get his heart rate to a certain level and still felt pretty good. We’re encouraged that this might may be only a couple days.”
Seguin suffered the injury in Friday’s game against Chicago, and woke up Saturday not feeling well. He underwent testing Sunday morning and was ruled out of that evening’s game against the Edmonton Oilers. Seguin is scheduled to travel with the team as it hits the road for games at Chicago and Toronto this week.
Rome to IR, Stars recall Morin
The Stars placed defenseman Aaron Rome on injured reserve retroactive to November 24 with a lower body injury. Rome missed some practices last week with what the Stars called a muscle issue.
The move opened up a roster spot to recall center Travis Morin from the Texas Stars of the AHL. Morin leads the AHL in scoring with 29 points (11 goals, 18 assists) in 19 games. He’s played three games for Dallas this season, posting no points.
The Stars held an optional practice Monday in Frisco. Goaltenders Kari Lehtonen and Dan Ellis were both on the ice along with Trevor Daley, Cody Eakin, Erik Cole, Valeri Nichushkin, Jamie Oleksiak, Kevin Connauton, Dustin Jeffrey, Travis Morin and Aaron Rome. The rest of the players worked out off the ice.
