Stars' Joel Kiviranta: Moves to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiviranta was promoted to the active roster Saturday.

This is simply a paper move because Saturday's game against the Lightning has been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns, per NHL Public Relations. The Stars' next scheduled game is on the road against the Panthers. Kiviranta has recorded two points through four games this year.

Stars' Joel Kiviranta: Shifts to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiviranta was assigned to Dallas' taxi squad Tuesday, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.

This is just a paper move, as Kiviranta is fully expected to be back on the active roster ahead of Thursday's game against Tampa Bay. The 24-year-old Finn has picked up two points through four games this campaign.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stars' Joel Kiviranta: On taxi squad Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiviranta was assigned to the taxi squad Sunday, per CBS Sports.

This is almost assuredly a paper move, as Kiviranta has seen top-six minutes this season. He has two points, six hits and a plus-2 rating in four outings this season. Look for him to be back in the lineup ahead of Monday's game versus the Predators.

Stars' Joel Kiviranta: Lands on top line in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiviranta (lower body) registered three hits but was held off the scoresheet in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to Chicago.

Kiviranta hadn't played since the season opener, missing the last eight games, but he immediately landed on Dallas' first line with Jamie Benn and Joe Pavelski. The 24-year-old logged just under 18 minutes of ice time and saw time on the second power-play unit.

Stars' Joel Kiviranta: Lifted from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiviranta (lower body) was activated from injured reserve, indicating that he'll play in Tuesday's game versus the Blackhawks, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Kiviranta was dynamic in the season-opening win over the Predators, notching a goal and an assist over 11:55 of ice time. He missed the last eight games, but he's ready to get back at it Tuesday. With Alexander Radulov (lower body) ruled out, Kiviranta is expected to slot into the first line alongside Joe Pavelski and Jamie Benn.

Stars' Joel Kiviranta: Game-time decision Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiviranta (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game versus the Blackhawks, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.

Kiviranta will first need to be activated from injured reserve. The 24-year-old skated on the first line during Monday's practice, so he's certainly on the right track. He has just one game under his belt this season, but he impressed with a goal and an assist over 11:55 of ice time.

Stars' Joel Kiviranta: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiviranta (lower body) returned to practice Saturday, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Kiviranta has been sidelined since suffering an injury in the Stars' season opener against the Predators on Jan. 22, but it appears as though he could be an option for Sunday's matinee matchup with Chicago. Confirmation on the 24-year-old winger's status against the Blackhawks should surface prior to puck drop.

Stars' Joel Kiviranta: Out against Blue Jackets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

As expected, Kiviranta (lower body) won't play Thursday against Columbus, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Although Kiviranta won't be available against the Blue Jackets, he has yet to be formally ruled out of Sunday's clash with Chicago. The 24-year-old Finn has been sidelined since picking up a goal and an assist in Dallas' season opener against Nashville on Jan. 22.

Stars' Joel Kiviranta: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiviranta (lower body) is expected to miss the Stars' next three games after coach Rick Bowness told reporters, "Doubtful you'll see him this week," Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports.

Kiviranta hasn't played since the season-opener against the Predators. The 24-year-old youngster was phenomenal in the postseason for Dallas last year and appeared to have picked up right where he left off with a goal and an assist. At this point, the winger will have been out of action for at least eight games before his next opportunity to play Feb. 9 against Chicago.

Stars' Joel Kiviranta: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Stars placed Kiviranta (lower body) on injured reserve Sunday.

The 24-year-old suffered the lower-body injury in practice Saturday, and as evidenced by this news, the injury appears worse than expected. This is unfortunate news for the Finn, as he racked up a goal and assist in Friday's season-opening win over the Predators. His placement is retroactive to Friday, so Kiviranta will miss at least the next three games. Kiviranta was replaced on the active roster by Tanner Kero, who was called up from the taxi squad in a corresponding move.

Stars' Joel Kiviranta: Exits practice with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiviranta sustained a lower-body injury during Saturday's practice, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.

Kiviranta got off to a hot start in Friday's season opener, picking up a goal and an assist in a 7-0 win over the Predators, but it looks like he may be in danger of missing Sunday's rematch with Nashville. If Kiviranta's unable to go, Justin Dowling or Joel L'Esperance will likely draw into the lineup.

Stars' Joel Kiviranta: One of each Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiviranta scored a goal and dished an assist in Friday's 7-0 win over the Predators.

Kiviranta showed good chemistry with Joe Pavelski and Alexander Radulov on the Stars' second line -- the trio had nine points combined. The 24-year-old Kiviranta is at risk of moving down the lineup, as he skated just 11:55 on Friday, but his spot will be secure with more performances like this one. He garnered attention during the playoffs with five goals and one assist in 14 appearances for the Western Conference champions. The Finn could be a solid value option in DFS for Sunday's second game versus the Predators.
