Hemsky scored on his only shot in Friday's 4-1 win over Carolina. Hemsky was maybe put back in the lineup a little earlier than planned due to an injury to Antoine Roussel, but he made the most of it, grabbing his first goal since the season opener.
Contrary to an earlier report that indicated otherwise, Hemsky will draw back into the Stars' lineup Friday against Carolina, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports. Hemsky, who has tallied seven points (one goal, six assists) in 12 games this season, is expected to skate alongside Vernon Fiddler and Colton Sceviour on the Stars' third line in Friday's contest.
Hemsky (hip) won't play Friday against the Hurricanes. Friday will mark the second straight game Hemsky will miss due to a hip issue that flared up after Monday's game against Toronto. Hemsky underwent hip surgery in the offseason, so it isn't shocking that he's likely dealing with some soreness after averaging 12:41 of ice time in the Stars' first 12 games. One wouldn't expect the ailment to keep the 32-year-old winger out of action long term, but his status for Sunday's matchup with the Red Wings is iffy at best at this point in time.
Hemsky (hip) will not suit up for Tuesday's tilt against the Bruins, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports. Hemsky underwent hip surgery in the offseason, so he is likely dealing with a fair bit of soreness following Monday's tilt against Toronto in which he logged 14:41 of ice time. Hemsky should be ready to return to action Friday against Carolina. Jason Spezza could be in line for a larger role Tuesday against the Bruins in Hemsky's absence.
Hemsky (undisclosed) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Bruins, ESPNBoston.com's Joe McDonald reports. Hemsky, who had offseason hip surgery, is likely dealing with some soreness ahead of Tuesday's tilt after logging 14:41 of ice time in Monday's game against the Maple Leafs. His availability for Tuesday's contest against Boston likely won't be confirmed until pregame warmups.
