Johns (upper body) will rejoin the lineup for Tuesday's game against Edmonton. Johns missed the Stars' last three games due to an upper-body issue, but he'll return to a bottom-pairing role against the Oilers. The 27-year-old American has picked up five points while posting a plus-1 rating in 13 games this campaign.
Johns (upper body) is aiming to return for Tuesday's game versus the Oilers, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports. Johns has missed the last three games with an upper-body injury, which wasn't a concussion, but the Stars are optimistic that he'll be ready to go Tuesday. He'll likely bump either Roman Polak or Andrej Sekera from the lineup. Johns has adjusted well to getting back into NHL action after sitting out for over a year with post-traumatic headaches, as he's posted five points and 35 hits over 13 contests.
Johns (upper body) won't play Saturday against St. Louis, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports. Johns will miss a third consecutive game Saturday, but he's still considered day-to-day with his upper-body issue, which suggests he could be ready to return as soon as Tuesday against the Oilers. Another update on the 27-year-old blueliner's status should surface prior to that contest.
Johns (upper body) won't play Thursday against Boston, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports. Johns is considered day-to-day and was able to skate Wednesday, so he shouldn't miss too much time with his upper-body issue. Once he's given the green light, the 27-year-old American will return to a bottom-four role for the Stars.
Johns (upper body) skated Wednesday and is considered day-to-day, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports. Johns was held out of Tuesday's game versus the Hurricanes due to an upper-body injury, and there were definitely concerns about this issue because the 27-year-old blueliner has a lengthy history of post-traumatic headaches. However, this doesn't appear to be related, as Johns was back on the ice Wednesday and went through a conditioning skate with the team. He should be considered questionable going into Thursday's game against the Bruins.
