Stars' Andrej Sekera: No points in last 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera has gone 10 games without a point.

The Slovak blueliner has 13 shots on goal, seven blocked shots and five hits in that span. Sekera hasn't been a major producer this year, with only eight points, 62 shots and a plus-9 rating through 56 outings -- fantasy owners likely don't need to track his output.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Role shrinking
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera has appeared in just four of the Stars' last eight games.

Sekera has been splitting time fairly evenly with Roman Polak since the return of Stephen Johns made the Stars' blue line crowded. Through 50 games this season, Sekera has eight points, 68 blocked shots and a plus-10 rating. He won't play every night unless injuries arise -- the 33-year-old is safe to avoid in fantasy.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Sends helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera registered an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Monday's 5-3 win over the Rangers.

Sekera found Corey Perry for an insurance tally in the third period. The helper snapped a seven-game point drought for the Slovakian defenseman, who now has eight points in 46 outings. The Stars' blue line is crowded, which means Sekera isn't an everyday player -- he's safe to avoid from a fantasy standpoint.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Healthy scratch Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera served as a healthy scratch for Monday's game versus the Lightning.

With the return of Stephen Johns, the Stars now have eight healthy defensemen on the roster. According to Sean Shapiro of The Athletic, it's likely all eight blueliners will remain with the team. Only three (John Klingberg, Miro Heiskanen and Esa Lindell) are truly a lock for the lineup each game. As such, Sekera can be expected to occasionally spend time in the press box. The Slovak has seven points, 63 blocked shots and 46 shots on goal in 44 appearances -- he's mostly a defensive presence, so fantasy owners likely won't notice him missing from the lineup every now and then.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Goals in back-to-back games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera scored a shorthanded, empty-net goal in Friday's 4-1 win over the Red Wings.

Sekera put the icing on the cake with his second goal in as many games after a multi-season scoring drought. He's posted four points in his last three outings, but don't expect the 33-year-old to keep up this pace for long. He's had all of 12 points over 60 contests in the last two campaigns combined, and he's only at seven points through 38 appearances this year.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: First goal of 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera scored a goal on two shots, added two hits and blocked two shots in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Predators.

Sekera may petition the league to play all games outdoors now -- after failing to tally a regular-season goal since March 23, 2017 (a span of 104 games), a Winter Classic appearance got the defenseman back in the goal column. He's up to six points, 58 blocked shots and a plus-8 rating through 37 contests this season.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Manages two assists in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera collected a pair of assists and went plus-2 in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes.

Sekera's no-look pass went to Alexander Radulov, who fired home the tying goal. He added a helper on Mattias Janmark's empty-net tally as well. The assists ended a 10-game point drought for the defenseman, who now has five helpers in 36 contests this year. Sekera has added 56 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating, but the lack of offense makes him unreliable for fantasy owners.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Offense dries up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera has no points in his last six games.

Sekera has produced 12 blocked shots, nine shots on goal and six PIM in that span. He's managed only three assists through 31 games this season, and the non-scoring production isn't enough to offset the minimal offense.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Registers helper Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera posted an assist in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Jets.

Sekera set up Miro Heiskanen for the Stars' only goal of the game. Sekera now has three helpers in 25 contests this year. The 33-year-old has added 40 blocked shots and 26 shots on goal with a plus-5 rating. Given the low point production, there's no reason to roster Sekera in most fantasy formats.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Finds assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera picked up an assist in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Jets.

Sekera has struggled to produce offense this season, with just two helpers and 23 shots on goal in 19 games. On the bright side, he's only lost four games to injury thus far. The 33-year-old is purely a defensive defenseman, so there's little reason to consider him for fantasy.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera (undisclosed) is expected to return to the lineup for Sunday's game against Winnipeg, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

Sekera has next to no offensive upside -- he's picked up a total of 13 points in 73 games over the past three campaigns -- but he's been logging over 20 minutes of ice time per game for the Stars this campaign, and will likely continue to fill a similar role upon his return to the lineup.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to Sean Shapiro of The Athletic, Sekera (undisclosed) wasn't on the ice for morning skate, which all but confirms he won't play Tuesday against Colorado.

Sekera will miss a fourth consecutive contest and remains without a definite timetable for his return to the lineup. Either way, the veteran blueliner has only picked up one assist in 13 games this campaign, so his continued absence will go unnoticed in most fantasy circles.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Expected to miss next two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera (undisclosed) won't play Friday against Colorado and is considered doubtful for Saturday's matchup with Montreal, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

At this point it's safe to assume Sekera will miss both of the Stars' next two contests, but Dallas will undoubtedly release another update on his status if he's somehow able to recover in time to suit up against the Canadiens. In all likelihood, the veteran blueliner will need to wait for Tuesday's clash with Colorado for his next opportunity to rejoin the lineup.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Unavailable against Wild
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera (undisclosed) won't play in Tuesday's game against the Wild, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

Sekera was injured during Saturday's loss to the Penguins, but coach Jim Montgomery was optimistic about his status following the contest. Joel Hanley figures to slot in during Sekera's absence. The 33-year-old blueliner could suit up for Friday's game against the Avalanche.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Injury not considered serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera (undisclosed) isn't expected to be sidelined long after exiting Saturday's game versus the Penguins. Coach Jim Montgomery said the injury didn't seem serious, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

This is good news for Sekera, who has lost large portions of the last two campaigns to injury. It's also good for the Stars, who are already missing Roman Polak (upper body) and could ill afford more injuries early in the year. Sekera should be considered day-to-day.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Heads to dressing room
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera crashed into the end boards and needed help to get to the locker room Saturday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

Sekera is the third Stars defenseman to require attention for an injury in Saturday's contest versus the Penguins. The incident happened in the third period when the blueliner got tangled up with Nick Bjugstad in a puck race. Given the timing of Sekera's injury, he may not return to the contest.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Rare sight on scoresheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera has just one assist through 12 games this season.

While lacking offense, Sekera has managed 23 blocked shots and 15 shots on goal in 2019-20. He's skating 21:11 per game on the second pairing, his highest ice time since 2016-17 when he played 21:29 per game with the Oilers. Sekera no longer sees meaningful power-play minutes, which will hinder his offense, and that in turn makes him unlikely to be of interest in fantasy.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Produces first helper with new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera recorded an assist in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Red Wings.

It's Sekera's first point of the year in three games. The 33-year-old currently serves as the more defense-oriented member of a pairing with Miro Heiskanen. He has reached 30 points three times in his career, but injuries have limited him to only 60 games and 12 points over the last two years, which he spent with the Oilers. While he should threaten 20 points if healthy this year, it's unlikely he'll justify a spot on most fantasy rosters.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Lands deal in Big D
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera penned a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Stars on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Sekera was bought out by the Oilers on Sunday, but didn't take long to find a new home. The blueliner -- who appeared in just 24 games last season due to injury -- figures to join a revitalized Stars club that is also expected to add veterans Joe Pavelski and Corey Perry. The 32-year-old may not be able to be a 40-point producer any more, but should still be a factor in the offensive zone, as well as joining one of the two power-play units.

Andrej Sekera: Time in Edmonton over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera was placed on unconditional waivers with the purpose of being bought out Sunday.

The 33-year-old defenseman had an injury-riddled past two years with the Oilers, dealing with a torn ACL and torn Achilles. This past season alone, Sekera only played 24 games, collecting four assists in that span. The Czech-born player was expected to make $5.5 million over the next two seasons, so it was going to be hard for the Oilers to trade him. Sekera will likely get another opportunity elsewhere, but might have to settle for a "prove-it" deal considering his age and injury history.
