Top Tanner Kero News

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Placed on waivers

    Kero was waived by the Stars on Thursday.

    Kero has managed just three points in 23 games this season while frequently serving as a healthy scratch. He'll likely be assigned to AHL Texas if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Healthy scratch Friday

    Kero was a healthy scratch for Friday's game versus the Blackhawks.

    Kero played in the last three games while Radek Faksa (lower body) was on the mend. With Faksa back, Kero exited the lineup, and he may have a tough time getting back in. With just three assists, 14 shots on net and a minus-5 rating in 23 games, the 29-year-old forward hasn't shown that he belongs in the lineup over younger options like Joel Kiviranta or Jacob Peterson, the latter of whom scored the shootout winner in Friday's 1-0 win.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Plucks apple in loss

    Kero registered an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Flames.

    Kero helped out on Joel Hanley's first NHL goal in the first period. The 29-year-old Kero has only seen a part-time role this year, but he still hadn't gotten on the scoresheet since Nov. 2. The winger is at three helpers, 11 shots on net and a minus-5 rating in 20 contests -- his presence on the Stars' fourth line will make him a non-factor in fantasy.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Exits COVID-19 protocols

    Kero departed the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Monday, per Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio.

    Kero has missed the last three Stars' games while in the virus protocols. The 29-year-old has generated two points during an average 9:34 of ice time over 15 appearances this season.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Designated for COVID-19 protocols

    Kero entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Monday.

    Kero has averaged 9:26 of ice time and been held without a point over his last three appearances. He recently returned from the NHL's concussion protocols last Tuesday. The 29-year-old is likely to miss Tuesday's contest against Montreal.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Cleared to return

    Kero (concussion) was given the green light to return to play Tuesday, per Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio.

    Kero stated he expects to play in Wednesday's contest with Seattle. The 29-year-old averaged 10:27 of ice time and logged two points through 11 appearances prior to his exit.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: On injured reserve

    Kero (concussion) won't be in the lineup against Florida on Thursday, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports. He's also been designated for IR, per the NHL media site.

    The fact that Kero was flipped to injured reserve to make way for Joel Kiviranta is likely an indication Kero won't be back anytime soon. As such, fantasy players should probably consider the 29-year-old winger out indefinitely. Even once cleared to play, Kero is far from a lock for the lineup and may have to serve as a healthy scratch from time to time.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: In concussion protocol

    Kero has entered the league's concussion protocols, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports, and should be considered out indefinitely.

    Kero -- who was taken off the ice on a stretcher during Saturday's clash with Chicago -- should probably be expected to miss at least the team's next three outings. Even once cleared to play, the Michigan native is far from a lock for the lineup and may have to settle for a spot in the press box from time to time.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Taken off ice on stretcher

    Kero was stretchered off the ice after suffering an upper-body injury in Saturday's game versus the Blackhawks, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.

    Kero was leveled on a high hit by Brett Connolly near the boards early in the first period, which left Kero motionless on the ice. It's safe to assume he won't return to the contest, and he'll undergo further medical evaluations to determine the extent of his injury. Per Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times, Kero was conscious and responsive en route to the hospital. An update on Kero's status should surface in the coming days.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Back with Stars

    The Stars recalled Kero from AHL Texas on Sunday, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Kero played seven games and tallied a pair of assists before being waived Nov. 11 and joining the AHL affiliate. Now, the 29-year-old rejoins the Stars to presumably serve as a bottom-line forward, if anything.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Clears waivers

    Kero cleared waivers Friday and will be assigned to AHL Texas, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News

    Veteran Blake Comeau also cleared waivers and will join Kero with the AHL affiliate. Kero has two assists in 9:29 of average ice time through seven NHL games this season.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Hits waivers

    Kero was waived by Dallas on Thursday, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Kero has sat as a healthy scratch for five of the Stars' last six games, so this move doesn't necessarily come as a surprise. If he goes unclaimed on waivers, Kero will presumably report to AHL Texas.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Grabs helper Tuesday

    Kero recorded an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Jets.

    Kero entered the lineup after serving as a healthy scratch for the last two games, replacing Denis Gurianov in a bottom-six role. The assist was Kero's second in seven contests this year. The 29-year-old is unlikely to play higher than the fourth line, so fantasy managers won't need to keep tabs on his output.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Pockets assist in loss

    Kero produced an assist in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Bruins.

    Kero has yet to crack 10 minutes of ice time in either of the Stars' two games yet, but he set up Luke Glendening for the team's lone goal Saturday. The 29-year-old Kero put up 10 points in 39 games last year in a bottom-six role. He's likely got a spot in the lineup until one of Jason Robertson or Blake Comeau return from their upper-body injuries.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Signs two-year extension

    Kero signed a two-year, two-way contract extension with the Stars on Monday.

    Kero will bolster Dallas' organizational depth, as he can play as a top forward with AHL Texas or slide into a bottom-six role with the big club when called upon. The 28-year-old Michigan native had three goals and seven assists in 39 games for the Stars in 2020-21, spending the whole season at the NHL level as the team frequently battled injuries up front.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Posts helper Friday

    Kero notched an assist and two hits in Friday's 5-2 win over the Lightning.

    Kero earned the secondary helper on a Jamie Oleksiak goal in the first period. The 28-year-old Kero has seen more playing time this season than expected. He's produced 10 points, 35 shots on net and a minus-1 rating through 37 appearances as a bottom-six option for the Stars.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Offers assist Monday

    Kero recorded an assist in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Panthers.

    Kero set up Joel Kiviranta's third-period tally. The 28-year-old Kero has nine points, 34 shots on goal and 24 hits in 35 contests. He doesn't stand out in any particular metric as a bottom-six depth option for the Stars.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Notches pair of power-play helpers

    Kero recorded two power-play assists in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Red Wings.

    Kero isn't known to see much power-play time, but he got a chance Thursday and helped out on goals by Radek Faksa and Denis Gurianov. Through 29 appearances, Kero has eight points, 28 shots on net and 22 hits. When he draws into the lineup, he typically works in a bottom-six role.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Deposits opening goal

    Kero scored a goal and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Red Wings.

    Kero struck just 2:55 into the game on a pass from Jamie Benn. The 28-year-old Kero hasn't done much on offense with just six points and 27 shots on net through 28 games. He's been good enough to stick in the lineup for 11 of the Stars' 12 contests in April, but he mainly works in a bottom-six role. He played on the second line Tuesday due to Roope Hintz (lower body) not suiting up.

  • Stars' Tanner Kero: Up to active roster

    Kero was promoted to the active roster Monday.

    Kero has played in seven of the last eight games, and he's accrued five points through 23 appearances this year. His next chance to play is Tuesday versus the Panthers.
