Tyler Seguin Misses Second Straight Practice

Center Tyler Seguin missed his second straight practice Thursday with what is being described as a muscle issue. Stars coach Lindy Ruff said he thought Seguin should be able to play Friday against Chicago, but couldn’t guarantee it.

“We just decided to give him another day. He’s not quite where we need him,” Ruff said. “He should be OK for tomorrow, but not definitely.”

Goaltender Kari Lehtonen, who missed Wednesday’s practice due to having some dental work done, was back on the ice Thursday and went through a full practice.

Defenseman Aaron Rome, who suffered an undisclosed injury in a recent practice, was not on the ice again.

Stars practice lineup

Here’s how the Stars lined up in Thursday’s practice. With Tyler Seguin not practicing, Dustin Jeffrey again centered Jamie Benn and Valeri Nichushkin. Ray Whitney was back on the second line with Cody Eakin and Alex Chiasson after skating with Shawn Horcoff and Rich Peverley on Wednesday.
