Stars' Justin Dowling: Injury not a concern
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling (upper body) is no longer battling an injury and could play Friday against the Blackhawks, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Dowling seems likely to draw in for the Stars with Mats Zuccarello (arm) and Jamie Benn (rest) both slated to sit out the contest. Even so, the 28-year-old pivot, who has drawn into just nine NHL games, doesn't provide a ton of upside from a fantasy standpoint. He'll likely slot into the bottom six against the Blackhawks on Friday if inserted in the lineup.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Absence extends
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling (upper body) won't be available for Tuesday's home game against the Flyers, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

Dowling has missed the last two games with the upper-body injury, but is expected to be back either Friday or Saturday before the regular season concludes. His return likely won't have an effect in the fantasy world, as he has just one assist in eight games this campaign. Expect an update on the 28-year-old's status closer to puck drop Friday.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Sidelined Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling (upper body) will not play in Saturday's road tilt against the Canucks, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Dowling suffered the upper-body injury in Wednesday's game and will be forced to miss a second consecutive contest. The 28-year-old's absence likely won't have a big fantasy impact, as he sits at one point in nine games. Per DeFranks, Dowling is at least three days away from a possible return to the ice.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Sitting out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling (upper body) will not play in Thursday's game against the Oilers, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

Dowling was limited to just 7:39 of ice time in Wednesday's game because of the upper-body issue, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that he won't make the quick turnaround for Thursday's affair. Considering he has just one assist and no goals through nine NHL contests, his eventual return likely won't move the fantasy needle in many leagues.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Considered day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling (upper body) is officially day-to-day following Wednesday's game against the Flames, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

Given the short turnaround for Thursday's contest against the Oilers, it seems highly unlikely Dowling will be ready to go for the contest. Assuming that's the case, either Joel L'Esperance or Brett Ritchie would likely draw in for the Stars on Thursday.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Done with upper-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling won't return Wednesday with an upper-body injury.

Despite seeing extensive ice time and action on the power play, Dowling owns just one point through nine NHL games this season. The 28-year-old pivot has fared much better in the AHL, collecting 13 goals and 40 assists over 62 contests. While he may still hold some small value in deep dynasty leagues, but his age takes him out of prospect territory at this point. Even if Dowling makes it back into action for Thursday's game against the Oilers, he doesn't carry much fantasy promise into the contest.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Receives promotion to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling was called up from AHL Texas on Saturday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

The 28-year-old center clearly is unfazed by AHL competition, as he's uncorked 13 goals and 40 helpers over 62 games. Still, the Stars technically had enough forwards to fill a lineup even before Dowling was summoned to the parent club ahead of Saturday's game against the Penguins.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Inks two-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling signed a two-year, two-way contract extension with the Stars on Saturday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

Dowling has only appeared in 15 NHL contests over the past three campaigns, and at 28 years old, he's nothing more than an organizational depth option at this stage in his career.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling was sent down to AHL Texas on Wednesday.

Dowling tallied an assist in six games but now heads back to AHL Texas where the 28-year-old, prior to his promotion, had recorded six points in seven games. Dowling's demotion likely means Denis Gurianov will draw into Dallas' lineup Thursday against San Jose.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Called up from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling was promoted from AHL Texas on Monday.

Dowling has racked up six points through seven minor-league games, earning himself a promotion to the NHL. Whether the center slots into the lineup for Tuesday's clash with Los Angeles likely depends on the health of Alexander Radulov (undisclosed).

Stars' Justin Dowling: Waived for reassignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling landed on the waiver wire Monday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

Dowling will be headed back to AHL Texas -- assuming he goes unclaimed -- where he spent the entirety of the 2017-18 campaign. In 65 minor-league contests, the center racked up and impressive 13 goals and 28 helpers, which should put him on the short list of potential call-ups this season.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Placed on waivers, likely to wind up with AHL Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling was waived Saturday for the purpose of reassignment to AHL Texas, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

Dowling suffered from a concussion before the start of training camp. The depth center only appeared in one of a possible three preseason contests, but he didn't register so much as a single shot on goal and went minus-1.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Cleared for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling (concussion) is ready to go ahead of training camp, according to general manager Jim Nill.

Dowling is facing an uphill battle to earn a permanent spot in the 23-man roster. More likely, an impressive camp could get his name on new coach Ken Hitchcock's short list for in-season call-ups.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Inks extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling (concussion) signed a two-year, two-way contract extension Monday.

What the 25-year-old lacks in size, he makes up for with speed and quickness, which has made him a successful scorer at the AHL level. However, in nine games with Dallas this season, Dowling notched a modest two points and 11 shots, so it's likely that this signing was strictly to maintain forward depth in the organization.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Out with concussion Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling as listed as a projected scratch for Saturday's game against the Avalanche due to a concussion, NHL.com reports.

The concussion is certainly not an ideal diagnosis for Dowling after he left Thursday's game in Nashville prematurely. However, the rookie now has the entire offseason to heal before he'll presumably lobby for a roster spot out of training camp this fall.

April 7, 2017 06:48 PM
Stars' Justin Dowling: Leaves game Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling left Thursday's game against Nashville with an upper-body injury and is questionable to return.

The 26-year-old doesn't have much experience -- only nine games -- but his two points aren't much for fantasy players to get excited about. More about his status should come out after the game or following Friday's practice.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Recalled Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling was recalled from the Texas Stars of the AHL on Tuesday.

As Dowling was previously on an emergency recall, he had to be demoted Monday and then get brought up Tuesday on a normal recall. In the seven games he's suited up for with Dallas this season, Dowling has notched two assists while averaging only about 11 minutes on the ice. That said, since joining the Stars' organization in 2012-13, Dowling has an impressive 201 points in 278 AHL games, so he should be given more of an opportunity to put his offensive abilities on display in the few remaining games of the 2016-17 campaign.

April 4, 2017 12:04 AM
Stars' Justin Dowling: Sent down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling was reassigned to AHL Texas on Monday.

Dowling was called up under emergency conditions, so his demotion is a good indicator that Ales Hemsky (hip) or Jiri Hudler (lower body) could be ready to go for Tuesday's matchup with Arizona. The 26-year-old Dowling played in two of three possible contests during this latest call-up, logging a mere two shots while averaging 12:37 of ice time.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Receives call from big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling was recalled from AHL Texas on Friday.

The Stars currently have six forwards dealing with an injury of some kind, so the need to recall Dowling and Gemel Smith was essential just to fill out the roster. The Alberta native managed two helpers in five games during his first stint with Dallas back in autumn.

Stars' Justin Dowling: Demoted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowling was reassigned Tuesday to AHL Texas.

By sending Dowling down to the minors, the Stars have opened up a spot on their 23-man roster, with Patrick Sharp (concussion) or Cody Eakin (knee) the most likely candidates to be activated off injured reserve. Dowling registered one assist, seven shots on goals and was plus-1 during this three-game stint in the majors. The center returns to the AHL where he is averaging over a point per game through eight appearances.
