Forward Ray Whitney, who has missed the last 12 games with a broken bone in his foot, skated during today’s optional practice in Frisco.
“He’s on target to get in a few practices next week,” said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan.
Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk said defenseman Aaron Rome is going to be out a while with a foot injury.
“I want to say six weeks,” Nieuwendyk said.
Nieuwendyk said defenseman Philip Larsen, who has missed the last two games, could be back soon.
“He got hit in the shoulder, he’s nursing that,” Nieuwendyk said. “I don’t think he’ll be that long. He’s not on IR as of now, but we could make it retroactive if it went beyond a week. I don’t think he’ll be that long.”
So they're thinking closer to 6 weeks than 3 on Rome obviously. That puts him out past the trade deadline.
I bet anyone willing to take it $10 that we hear from one member of the coaching staff or front office, "it's like trading for a Top 4/6 defender," when he comes back from injury.
