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.

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.

October 31, 2019 01:32 PM
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.
