Monday update: Jordie Benn returns; Alex Chiasson enjoying the experience

Dallas Stars players worked out off the ice today in Frisco. The news of the morning was that the Stars recalled defenseman Jordie Benn from the Texas Stars. Stars coach Glen Gulutzan said there are no injury issues on defense and that the team wants an extra defenseman in the mix right now.

“Seven D is good to have,” Gulutzan said. “At the end of the day, we can’t run here with six because you are a sickness way from five. We get Jordie back, he’s been here most of the year and we’ll see what we do for our roster tomorrow. We haven’t made any final decisions.”

There was no update on forward Lane MacDermid, who missed Sunday’s game with an upper body injury. MacDermid went to the doctor this morning, so the Stars should get an update later today.

With two wins in a row the Stars have moved up a bit in the standings. They now sit tenth in the Western Conference, four points out of the eighth and final playoff spot. Gulutzan said the team has remained positive despite the ups and downs of the past couple weeks.

“They were never too down. Obviously, you don’t like falling out. There are a lot of positives in this room, there is a lot of work, there is a lot of pride,” Gulutzan said. “We’re just playing one game at a time. We’re going to play as hard as we can every game. We’re not going to get caught up looking at the standings, we just want to make sure we are competing night in and night out.”
