Stars' Andrej Sekera: Generates assist Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera produced an assist, three shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Blue Jackets.

Sekera got a puck to the front of the net, and Jason Dickinson swiped it home for the opening goal just 2:24 into the contest. The helper was Sekera's first point in 13 outings this year. He's added 20 blocked shots, 13 hits and eight shots on goal in a mostly defensive role.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera (illness) will suit up for Thursday's game versus the Blue Jackets, Brian Waddle of Fox Sports Southwest reports.

Sekera missed one game with the illness, but he'll return to a familiar third-pairing role. The 34-year-old Sekera will work alongside Joel Hanley while Mark Pysyk sits as a healthy scratch.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Won't play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera is out with a non-COVID-19 illness and won't play Tuesday versus the Lightning, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Sekera was a late scratch for Tuesday's contest. In his place, Joel Hanley will enter the lineup in a third-pairing role. Sekera should be considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday's contest against the Blue Jackets.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Set to return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera (COVID-19 protocols) will be added to the Stars' active roster and suit up for Thursday's tilt with the Hurricanes, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Sekera will suit up for the first time since Jan. 30 after finally clearing COVID-19 protocols. The 34-year-old is still searching for his first point of the season but has already racked up 12 blocked shots through five games.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Ruled out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera (COVID-19 protocols) will not be available against the Blackhawks on Tuesday, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Sekera will miss his fifth consecutive contest after being placed in the league's COVID-19 protocols. Prior to his absence, the 34-year-old defender recorded two shots, 12 blocks and four hits in five games while averaging 17:45 of ice time. At this point, it seems Sekera's days as a 30-40 point producer are long gone, as he'll be lucky to hit the 25-point threshold this season.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Might return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera (COVID-19 protocol) is a game-time decision for Tuesday's game versus the Blackhawks, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.

Sekera has missed the last four games. According to Greg Wyshynski of ESPN.com, Sekera has produced three negative COVID-19 tests, so he seems to be on track to return soon even if he's not ready Tuesday. Joel Hanley likely will be bumped from the lineup if Sekera can't go.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Lands in COVID-19 protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera (COVID-19 protocol) won't play in Sunday's game against the Hurricanes.

Sekera was placed in the league's COVID-19 protocol Sunday. The 34-year-old has played in each of the first five games this year, generating 12 blocked shots and two shots on net. Either Joel Hanley or Taylor Fedun will take his place on the third pairing.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Inks two-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera signed a two-year, $3 million contract with the Stars on Sunday.

Sekera played every game during the Stars' trip to the Stanley Cup Final, averaging 14:43 of ice time and recording 38 hits and 38 blocked shots. The 34-year-old will continue to serve as veteran depth for the Stars as they look to repeat last season's magic.

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

Sekera (undsiclosed) was on the ice for warmups and is expected to suit up for Monday's Game 6 tilt with the Lightning, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Sekera was banged up in the Game 5 victory Saturday but appears to be fit for action. The 34-year-old blueliner has averaged 14:48 of ice time while recording just one assist since the NHL returned to play in August.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera will be a game-time decision for Monday's Game 6 matchup with the Lightning, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.

Considering Sekera has tallied one assist in his last 37 games and hasn't scored a goal since Jan. 3 versus Detroit, few fantasy players will notice his absence if he is unable to play. If Sekera can't give it a go, Taylor Fedun should be the leading candidate to take his place in the lineup.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Back on ice in third period
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera (undisclosed) returned in the third period of Saturday's Game 5 versus the Lightning, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

Sekera missed half of the first period and all of the second after blocking a shot. He was able to take his regular shifts on the third pairing in the third and he will try to play through the pain with the Stars' season on the line.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Suffers injury Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera exited Saturday's Game 5 versus the Lightning with an undisclosed injury, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

Sekera blocked a shot in the first period and went to the locker room. He tried to skate it off to start the second period, but that apparently didn't work, as he promptly headed to the locker room again. Head coach Rick Bowness should have an update following the game.

Stars' Andrej Sekera: Sets up overtime winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sekera registered an assist, three shots on goal and three blocked shots in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Avalanche in Game 7.

It was an unlikely combination leading to the Stars' series-clinching goal. Sekera centered a pass for Joel Kiviranta, who buried it to complete his hat trick. As for Sekera, the assist was his first point in 16 playoff games. The blueliner has seen less than 15 minutes per game, while adding 20 hits, 24 blocked shots and a minus-3 rating. He's not likely to make an impact in the fantasy realm.

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.
