Stars' Gonchar Out Next Two Games

News: Sergei Gonchar (ankle) will not return to action in the Stars' next two games, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar has demonstrated progress by resuming skating Monday, but he's probably not going to be ready play until next week at the earliest. In addition to the ankle ailment that continues to keep Gonchar out, the Stars also lost Patrik Nemeth to a season-ending injury this past Saturday, weakening an already-thin Dallas blue line.

Stars' Gonchar Skates Solo Monday

News: Sergei Gonchar (ankle) skated on his own Monday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' website reports.
Analysis: It's not exactly clear where Sergei Gonchar stands in his recovery, but it's a good sign that he was able to get back on the ice. Gonchar will likely be ready to return to game action sometime in early November.

Stars Place Gonchar On IR

News: Sergei Gonchar (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Monday.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar is not expected to return until early November due to a severe ankle injury. His injury will pave the way for youngster Jamie Oleksiak to make the Stars' Opening Night roster.

Stars' Gonchar: (Ankle) To Miss 3-5 Weeks

News: Sergei Gonchar has been ruled out for three-to-five weeks with an ankle injury, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: The multi-week injury likely ensures that Sergei Gonchar will open the season on injured reserve, and surely was a motivating factor in the Stars getting a deal done with restricted free agent Brenden Dillon. Now 40 years old and a full four years removed from his last 50-point campaign, Gonchar shouldn't be on anyone's radar outside of very deep leagues.

Stars' Gonchar (Ankle) Questionable For Opener

News: Coach Lindy Ruff acknowledged Sergei Gonchar (ankle) could be out for "a period of time," Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Though the Stars are still a full week away from their regular-season opener against the Blackhawks, Ruff's ominous words suggest Sergei Gonchar's status is in serious question for that contest, and possibly beyond. More information regarding his condition should be available in the coming days, but it might be prudent to move him down a few pegs on your draft board, in the event the injury proves to be more serious. Gonchar's fantasy appeal was already on the downturn before he suffered the ailment, as he tallied only two goals and 20 assists in his first season in Big D, with his 22 points representing his lowest output for a full campaign since 1997-98.

Stars' Gonchar Sits Out With Ankle Injury

News: Sergei Gonchar did not participate in Wednesday's practice after taking a puck off his ankle late in Tuesday's exhibition game, Brandon Worley of DefendingBigD.com reports.
Analysis: It's not entirely clear what type of setback Sergei Gonchar is dealing with, but he was seen in obvious pain on the bench after being struck by the puck. Expect an update on his status as more details become available.

Stars' Gonchar Returns To Practice

News: Sergei Gonchar (ear) returned to practice Wednesday, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar appears to be just fine after suffering an ear laceration upon taking a puck to the head in a scrimmage Sunday. He could return to preseason action for the Stars as soon as Friday's tilt with the Lightning.

Stars' Gonchar Suffers Ear Injury

News: Sergei Gonchar will be sidelined for a few days with an ear laceration, Mark Stepneski of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: The veteran will take a few days to heal up, but his status for the regular season isn't in jeopardy at this point.

Stars Tried To Trade Gonchar

News: The Stars spent part of the summer trying to find a trade partner for Sergei Gonchar, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Analysis: The 40-year-old defenseman averaged just 17:37 of ice time last season and a paltry 13:24 during the playoffs. His production dropped off steeply as he posted 22 points in 76 games last season after scoring 27 in 45 games the year before. Despite the team's willingness to reportedly eat half of his $5 million salary, they couldn't find a home for Sergei Gonchar. He should still have some upside, but it sounds as though Dallas may not give him many minutes and his leash may be short, especially with a glut of young d-men looking to crack the roster this season.

Stars' Gonchar Has Assist In Limited Ice Time

News: Sergei Gonchar grabbed an assist while playing just 13:35 in Monday's win over the Jets.
Analysis: At 39 years old, Sergei Gonchar doesn't have the stamina he once had. Or Stars management doesn't trust him enough to let him test it. Either way, you aren't getting much ice time out of the veteran. The last time he crossed the 20-minute mark was Jan. 16, and he's been under 15 minutes in the last three games.

Stars' Gonchar Tallies Assist, Snaps Slump

News: Sergei Gonchar had an assist and 16:52 of ice time in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar is having a rough season. His ice time is low and he's putting points on the board at one of the slowest paces of his career. His two goals and 17 assists in 56 games this season is less than what he did in 45 last year.

Stars' Gonchar Slowing With Age

News: Sergei Gonchar has two goals and 16 assists in 52 games so far this season.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar is a few years past his prime at this point, but he still chips in offensively every now and then. His minus-8 rating makes him a little less valuable, so there are probably more productive options out there for owners who need help on the blue line.

Stars' Gonchar Will Play Saturday

News: Sergei Gonchar (lower body) will play Saturday vs. the Wild, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar was a little banged up after a physical contest with the Bruins on Thursday, but after taking Friday to rest, he should be on track for his usual amount of minutes. The blueliner has settled down a bit after running hot in mid-December, as he has been held to just one point over his last eight games.

Stars' Gonchar Questionable With Lower Body Injury

News: Sergei Gonchar is questionable for Saturday's game against the Wild due to a lower body injury, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar saw over 20 minutes of ice time in the Stars' last game, but his status for Saturday's game is uncertain due to the injury. Expect the Stars to update Gonchar's status prior to the first puck being dropped Saturday.

Stars' Gonchar To Return Monday

News: Sergei Gonchar (concussion) will be activated from injured reserve and will play in Monday's game against the Islanders.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar has missed the last six games for the Stars recovering from a concussion. He has been cleared to return and will take the ice Monday for the Stars against the Islanders.

Stars' Gonchar Expected Back Monday

News: Sergei Gonchar (concussion) is expected to return from IR on Monday vs. the Islanders, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar will miss Saturday's contest - his sixth in a row - as he recovers from a concussion, but coach Lindy Ruff indicated that the defenseman looked good while skating the past couple of days. With another quality practice Sunday, Gonchar should be given the go-ahead to return to the Stars' lineup.

Stars' Gonchar Returns To Practice Friday

News: Sergei Gonchar (concussion) was a full participant in Friday's practice for the Stars.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar has missed five games with the concussion but was able to practice Friday without any issues. He may be able to return for Saturday's game against the Red Wings, but a decision will likely be made closer to game time by coach Lindy Ruff.

Stars' Gonchar Out Thursday

News: Sergei Gonchar (concussion) will not play Thursday against the Canadiens, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar was given the green light to take full contact Thursday, and thus cleared one of the final hurdles on his road back from a concussion. He won't go against Montreal, but figures to need only a few practices before returning to the lineup.

Stars' Gonchar Cleared For Contact

News: Sergei Gonchar (concussion) has been cleared for contact, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' website reports.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar has not played since Dec. 21 due to the concussion, but his participation in Thursday's morning skate gives him a chance to play Thursday night against the Canadiens.

Stars' Gonchar Works Out Off Ice

News: Sergei Gonchar (concussion) worked out off the ice Saturday, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: It's just preliminary activity for Sergei Gonchar to stay conditioned while he remains limited by the concussion. The Stars will wait and see if he experienced any setbacks from Saturday's workout before possibly clearing him for on-ice duty.

Stars Place Gonchar On IR

News: Sergei Gonchar (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: The Stars will exchange one injured defenseman for another, as Aaron Rome (lower body) was activated from IR in a corresponding move and will rejoin the lineup Friday. Sergei Gonchar remains out indefinitely while he deals with the concussion and has yet to resume on-ice work.

Stars' Gonchar Has Concussion-Like Symptoms

News: Sergei Gonchar has concussion-like symptoms and is expected to miss 7-10 days, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: A hard shot struck Sergei Gonchar in the face during the second period Saturday's game, and the 39-year-old was unable to return. GM Jim Nill confirmed Sunday that Gonchar is displaying concussion symptoms, and he'll likely miss at least a week as a result. Maxime Fortunus was recalled and will slot into the lineup Monday against Los Angeles.

Stars' Gonchar Builds Point Streak To Three Games

News: Sergei Gonchar contributed an assist for the third straight game Tuesday vs. the Avalanche.
Analysis: Highlighted by a four-helper effort in Saturday's demolition of the Jets, Sergei Gonchar is finally showing signs of life after struggling through the first quarter of the season. Gonchar is still in search of his first goal, but he's been rewarded with increased minutes in recent contests in the wake of his rediscovered productivity on the offensive end.

Stars' Gonchar Off To Glacially Slow Start

News: Sergei Gonchar has registered just one point through 15 games this season.
Analysis: The addition of Sergei Gonchar was thought to be a major coup for the Stars after he was poached from the Senators in an offseason trade, but the veteran blueliner has looked every bit of his 39 years of age in the early going. Coach Lindy Ruff has dabbled with different defensive pairings in hopes of igniting Gonchar, but it's been all for naught thus far. In accordance with his struggles, Gonchar has seen his ice time decline precipitously during his time with the Stars. He's seeing 18:38 of action per game on the season, a drop of almost five and a half minutes from last season. It may be time for fantasy owners in shallower formats to look elsewhere for defenseman help.

Stars' Gonchar Agrees to Two-Year Deal

News: Sergei Gonchar, who was traded to Dallas on Friday, has agreed to a two-year deal with the Stars at $5 million per season, TSN reports.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar had a deal on the table from a KHL team for $7 million a season, but playing in the NHL is no doubt more important than an extra $2 mil a year. Gonchar will be 40 next season, but he's coming off a 27-point season in 45 games.
