Comeau (upper body) was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Oct. 7 on Wednesday, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports. Comeau didn't make the trip for the start of Dallas' four-game road trip, which will kick off Thursday night against the Rangers, but he may join the team on the road if he's able to overcome his upper-body injury by Tuesday. The 35-year-old vet picked up 14 points in 51 games last season.
Comeau (upper body) remained home in Dallas for the Stars' four-game road trip, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports. Comeau was already expected to be unavailable versus the Rangers on Thursday and it appears he may miss a few additional games, though coach Rick Bowness did say he could link up with the team later in the trip. An illness for Alexander Radulov might force the team to implement 11 forwards and seven defensemen in Thursday's contest.
Comeau (upper body) isn't expected to play in Thursday's regular-season opener versus the Rangers, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports. At this point it's safe to assume Comeau won't be available against New York, but the Stars will undoubtedly release another update on his status if he's able to gut it out and play in the season opener. Assuming Comeau is unable to go, Ty Dellandrea will likely draw into the lineup against the Rangers.
Comeau (upper body) is considered day-to-day, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports. Comeau will have a few days to get healthy before the team's first game Thursday against the Rangers. The 35-year-old forward averaged 15:44 of ice time while tallying 14 points in 51 games last season.
Comeau inked a one-year, $1 million contract with Dallas on Monday. For the third straight season, Comeau failed to reach the 20-point mark and appears to have become more of a bottom-six role player than the 30-point, 20-goal scorer he was in previous stops in his career. Given his reduced minutes and lack of power-play opportunities, the 35-year-old Comeau figures to offer low-range fantasy value, at best, heading into the 2021-22 campaign.
