    Stars' Jason Demers: "Good chance" he plays Saturday

    Coach Lindy Ruff says there's a "good chance" that Demers (illness) plays on Saturday, reports Mark Stepneski of the Stars' site. Demers was a late scratch in Thursday's game. If he does return Saturday, there may be concerns for a game or two about whether he's 100%, since he's not healthy enough to skate on Friday. He may be worth avoiding for a game in daily play.

    Stars' Jason Demers: Probable for Saturday's contest

    Head coach Lindy Ruff told reporters Friday that Demers (illness) is "feeling better," and that there's a good chance he'll play Saturday against Washington. The Stars will be relieved to know that Demers isn't dealing with a long-term issue, as he's played pretty well this season, notching 19 points (seven goals, 12 assists) and 77 shots on goal in 48 games. Expect an update on the 27-year-old blueliner's status ahead of puck drop Saturday evening.

    Stars' Jason Demers: Late scratch Thursday

    Demers (illness) is a late scratch for Thursday's game against Chicago, reports Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site. There isn't much information to go on, but since it's an illness and he was a late scratch, there's good reason to believe this is not a long-term thing.

    Stars' Jason Demers: Puts up points across categories

    Demers contributed an assist, four penalty minutes, two shots and 22:11 of ice time in Tuesday's win over Winnipeg. Demers continues a solid pace on the season, in line for 28 points, which would just be short of a career-high. He's already tied his career-high in goals. His overall offensive production is still middling, but he's playing at or just above pre-season expectations.

    Stars' Jason Demers: Puts up two assists against Blackhawks

    Demers collected a pair of helpers in Tuesday's win over Chicago. A strong fantasy night for the 27-year-old blueliner, who also fired four shots on goal and picked up two PIM. The two-assist outburst snapped a five-game pointless streak for Demers, who continues to log heavy minutes on the Dallas blueline. He isn't a big offensive contributor with 14 points in 29 games, but his impressive plus-14 rating, combined with his 25 PIM and large role on the highest-scoring team in the NHL, Demers has value in most fantasy leagues.

    Stars' Jason Demers: Back in action Friday

    Demers (upper body) will rejoin the lineup Friday night against the Flyers. Demers is ready to rock after missing the past three contests with the upper-body ailment. He has 11 points in 22 games to complement a plus-7 rating this season, providing a nice return for fantasy owners that took a flier on him this year.

    Stars' Jason Demers: Could play Friday

    Demers (upper body) practiced with the team Wednesday, and could be an option for Friday's game against the Flyers. Demers missed each of the last three games for the Stars due to the lower-body issue, but the plan is for him to practice again Thursday, which could make him a potential option Friday. The team should eventually provide an update confirming his status for the contest, and it's possible that could come after Thursday's practice.

    Stars' Jason Demers: Skates after Monday's practice

    Demers (upper body) skated after Monday's practice. After Monday's development, head coach Lindy Ruff is hopeful that Demers will return by the end of the week, which seems to rule the defenseman out of Tuesday's contest with Carolina. Demers does seem to be progressing though, as Monday marks the first time he has skated since suffering the injury December 1.

    Stars' Jason Demers: Out Friday

    Demers (upper body) will miss his second-consecutive game Friday against Edmonton, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports. This will be the fifth game that Demers has missed during 2015-16. Demers has enjoyed a breakout campaign to this point, scoring 0.5 points per game, averaging a career-high 20:30 average time on ice, and scoring on a ridiculous 11.4 percent of shots. Dallas doesn't play again until Tuesday, which could be enough time for Demers to return to health and avoid missing any more games.

    Stars' Jason Demers: Out for Thursday's contest

    Demers' upper-body injury will cost him Thursday's game against the Canucks. While the injury is not believed to be too severe, it was at least bad enough to keep him from skating Thursday morning. Dallas is scheduled for a back-to-back road set, so he won't have to wait long to try to draw into the next game.
