Sekera recorded an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Coyotes. Sekera set up Jason Robertson with a nice feed for what stood as the game-winning goal at 8:57 of the second period. The assist was Sekera's second of the year in 13 games. The 35-year-old has added 10 shots on net, 10 PIM, 10 hits, nine blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in a third-pairing role. He'll likely see more playing time than Joel Hanley, but Sekera doesn't do enough of anything in limited minutes to warrant a spot on fantasy rosters.
Sekera (illness) returned to practice Monday, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports. Sekera was back on the ice for Monday's practice session after missing out against the Blues on Saturday due to a non-COVID-19 illness. Even with his return to the team, Sekera is far from a lock for the lineup against Tuesday and could periodically serve as a healthy scratch.
Sekera (illness) isn't expected to play Saturday versus St. Louis, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports. With Sekera under the weather, look for Joel Hanley to draw into the lineup against the Blues. Sekera will be reevaluated ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Edmonton.
Sekera posted an assist and went plus-2 in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Flyers. Sekera previously had an assist taken away earlier in the season, but it appears his helper Saturday on a Tyler Seguin goal will stick. The 35-year-old Sekera has been a rotational option on the third pairing so far. He has nine hits, seven blocked shots, six PIM and an even plus-minus rating to go with the one assist in nine contests.
Sekera's assist from Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Senators was taken away on a scoring change. Points are often hard to come by for the 35-year-old defenseman, so it's tough to see him lose one. Sekera remains a defensive presence in the Stars' bottom four, but he likely won't play his way into much fantasy relevance.
