Demers (lower body) was not in warm-ups and thus can be expected to miss Tuesday evening's matchup versus the Senators, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports. Demers can be considered day-to-day going forward as he continues recovering from the injury. The 27-year-old has potted four goals and six assists in 19 games played with Dallas this season. His next chance to return to the ice will be on Friday when the Stars host the Canucks.
Demers (lower body) did not take part in practice Monday, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports. Demers was held to just 9:50 of ice time Saturday due to a lower-body injury, and his absence from Monday's practice could suggest he's not trending exactly in the right direction. However, the blueliner took to Twitter on Monday on the team's account for a Q&A with fans. It could just be a convenient excuse to give him a maintenance day, so it's probably best to check back on his practice status Tuesday for a better indicator of his potential availability for the evening's game against the Senators.
Demers left Saturday night's game against Buffalo with a lower-body injury and will not return. Demers, whose been a nice source of offense from the blue line, is day-to-day heading into Tuesday night's game at home against Ottawa.
Demers leaves Saturday's game early with a lower-body injury, Mark Stepneski of stars.nhl.com reports. It's not quite clear when Demers may have suffered the injury, but more information should be available following the conclusion of the contest.

Demers scored a goal and an assist, as well as posting a plus-3 rating and three shots in Saturday's win over the Sharks. That's points in three straight for Demers and goals in the last two. That's a good showing for the typically low-scoring defender. He is seeing some time on the team's second power play unit as well, which increases his odds of keeping the streak going.
