Sharp is being troubled by concussion symptoms again, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports. We now have a better idea of what is ailing the 34-year-old winger. Coach Lindy Ruff clarified in Heika's report that its unclear if the symptoms Sharp is dealing with now are related to the concussion that kept him out of 14 games earlier this season. Either way, he'll be out for at least a week.
Sharp (undisclosed) has been moved to injured reserve, retroactive to Dec. 1. At this point, one can only speculate what has sent Sharp to IR. The veteran winger missed 14 straight games with a concussion before returning to game action Nov. 19, but we won't assume that issue has resurfaced. Curtis McKenzie could be in line to start Saturday against the Avalanche with Sharp unavailable, though he hasn't done much offensively in limited action (three points in 16 games).
Sharp scored a shorthanded goal and took five shots during Wednesday's 5-2 loss to Nashville. It's great to see Sharp get back on the scoreboard after suffering a concussion in October that's limited him to just seven games this year. The 34-year-old now has two points and has some work to do after dropping 55 in his first campaign with the Stars last season. As long as he's healthy, the veteran should do damage with the top six.
Sharp (concussion) will be in the lineup for Saturday's matchup with the Oilers after missing the last 14 games, the Dallas News reports. The Stars are finally starting to get healthy and getting Sharp back for Saturday's big game must be a huge step for them. He has only one assist in the four games he's played this year, but the scoring is bound to pick up now that he's theoretically fully healthy and back with a potent Dallas offense that is scoring 2.67 goals per game.
Sharp may return to the Stars' lineup Saturday, reports Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News. Nothing is confirmed, but the Stars reassigned forward Gemel Smith to AHL Texas on Friday. Sending Smith down is a good sign that Sharp is ready to go, especially since he returned to practice Tuesday. This will be a big add for rosters, but wait to see the official confirmation come through later on Friday or early Saturday.
