Eric Nystrom relishing opportunity on top line

Asked about Eric Nystrom, his linemate over the past few games, Jaromir Jagr glanced to his right at Nystrom, who was sitting a few away in the Dallas Stars locker room, and smiled.

“Look at him,” Jagr said with a laugh.

After a brief pause, he continued.

“He’s a good player, man,” Jagr said. “Very underrated. Very good player,”

And a player he didn’t know much about when he joined the Dallas Stars, but a player he’s grown to appreciate, especially now that they’ve been linemates recently.

“He didn’t get a chance to play offensively,” Jagr said. “He was on the fourth line and playing PK. So, he kind of surprised me. It’s all about opportunities. There is no question about it.”
