Stars Injury Update: Valeri Nichushkin and Sergei Gonchar likely to return tonight

By on 11/04/2014 04:30:00 PM

There could be some good news delivered to the Dallas Stars right before their game tonight against the Los Angeles Kings. It looks very likely that both forward Valeri Nichushkin and defenseman Sergei Gonchar could return to the lineup tonight. 

Mark Stepneski from Inside Edge is reporting that after this morning’s skate, the Stars are cautiously optimistic that both players will be in the lineup tonight. Gonchar has yet to play this season as he has been recovering from a fractured ankle that occurred during the third game of preseason. Nichushkin has been out since October 11 with a groin issue. After a small rehab assignment in the AHL over the weekend, it looks like he is ready to return to the lineup. 

Dallas is currently 4-3-4 and looks to rebound from their 4-1 loss to Minnesota this past Saturday.
