Stars' Fiddler On Three-Game Streak

News: Vernon Fiddler added an assist in Tuesday's loss to Carolina, giving him points in three straight games.
Analysis: It's a good streak for the 34-year-old forward, but he still has just two goals and five assists on the season. This may be more of a streak than an indication of what you should expect from Vernon Fiddler for the rest of the season.

Fiddler Adds Assist In Stars' Loss

News: Vernon Fiddler had an assist and was one of only five players with a positive plus/minus in Sunday's 6-2 loss to Chicago.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler continues to get fourth line minutes, though he did log an above average 14:13 in the game. He has assists in back-to-back games, totaling two goals and four assists on the season.

Stars' Fiddler Gets Second Goal

News: Vernon Fiddler scored the Stars' lone goal in Saturday's loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler's tally came just eight seconds after Matt Dumba gave the Wild a 2-0 lead, but it would prove to be only offense the Stars were able to scratch out on the night. The 34-year-old has three points in 11 games on the season and figures to be an infrequent source of points while he remains relegated to bottom-six duties.

Fiddler Re-Signs With Dallas

News: Vernon Fiddler re-signed with Dallas on Wednesday, accepting a two-year, $2.5 million deal, the Dallas Morning News reports. "As a staff, we all agree that we had a special dressing room and Vern has been a driving force behind shaping that culture," GM Jim Nill said. "He is a hard-nosed, detailed player that brings intensity and passion to the game every time he steps on the ice. We value everything that he brings to the table and are thrilled to keep him in the fold for the next two seasons."
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler rejected an extension less than two weeks ago, but the two sides were able to reconvene and hammer out a new deal. The veteran recorded 23 points in 76 regular season games and ranked second on the team with a 52.2% faceoff percentage.

Fiddler Unlikely To Return To Stars

News: The Stars have confirmed that Vernon Fiddler rejected a contract extension offer from the team, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Analysis: The Stars made it sound as though Vernon Fiddler rejected the offer and that they won't make another offer. Fiddler is likely to hit free agency on July 1, but could return to Dallas if he doesn't get a better offer on the market.

Stars' Fiddler Adds Goal, Assist In Win

News: Vernon Fiddler recorded a goal and an assist in Wednesday's win over the Ducks.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler also picked up a 10-minute misconduct penalty at the 17:50 mark of the third period as things got chippy between the two teams at the end of the game. The two points were Fiddler's first of the series, as the Stars' third line dominated most of the night.

Fiddler Grabs Assist As Stars Clinch

News: Vernon Fiddler had an assist, a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes, and four shots in a shutout win over St. Louis on Friday.
Analysis: After a bit of a slow season, Vernon Fiddler has finished up very nicely. He has two goals, six assists, a plus-6 rating, and an average of 2.5 shots per game over the last 10 games.

Fiddler Continues To Produce For Stars

News: Vernon Fiddler had an assist and two shots while skating 18:19 in Tuesday's win over Columbus.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler is having a great end to the season. Over the last eight games, he has two goals and five assists. That's especially impressive when you note that he only has five goals and 15 assists through 73 games this season.

Stars' Fiddler Heating Up

News: Vernon Fiddler registered a goal and assist in Saturday's win over the Lightning.
Analysis: After demonstrating limited usefulness as a scorer through much of the first six months of the season, Vernon Fiddler has turned it on the last handful of games. He's recorded a point in five of his last six contests and might be worth a look in deeper leagues.

Fiddler Streaking For Stars

News: Vernon Fiddler had an assist, three shots and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's win over Washington.
Analysis: That's a four-game point streak for Vernon Fiddler, who only has 18 points on the season. He's been an unlikely but welcome source of depth scoring for the Stars.

Three-Game Streak For Dallas' Fiddler

News: Vernon Fiddler had an assist, a plus-2 rating, and give shots in a win over the Blues on Saturday.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler, who has five goals and 12 assists this season, is riding a three-game point streak. He's also a plus-5 with an average of 3.34 shots per game over that stretch.

Stars' Fiddler Scores Rare Goal Friday

News: Vernon Fiddler scored just his fifth goal of the season during the Stars' 7-3 win over the Predators on Friday.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler and the rest of the role players finally did their part to alleviate the scoring burden off Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn by finding the net seven times on their own in this one. The 33-year-old Fiddler is obviously a more defensive-minded center so it's good to see him light the lamp every once in a while.

Stars' Fiddler Has Assist In Shootout Loss

News: Vernon Fiddler had an assist and a shot in a shootout loss to Calgary on Friday.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler's production has been slow lately, with only a goal and two assists in his last 16 games. At this point in the season, if you're playing Fiddler, it'd be worth looking for players on par with him, but with higher upside. Even with a lot of injuries in Dallas, Fiddler's upside is very limited.

Fiddler Grabs Two Points In Stars' Loss

News: Vernon Fiddler had a goal and an assist on three shots in Saturday's loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: That ends a nine game skid for Vernon Fiddler, who has seen his point production drop off this season. The veteran of 11 seasons never scored a ton, but he's on his slowest pace since his second season, when he scored zero goals in 17 games.

Stars' Fiddler Scoreless Over Last Eight

News: Vernon Fiddler has been held without a point for eight consecutive games heading into the Olympic break.
Analysis: The dropoff in productivity hasn't amounted to a noticeable decline in ice time, but Vernon Fiddler struggles to maintain fantasy relevance if he's not providing points. With only 31 hits and 37 blocks in 52 games, Fiddler isn't able to compensate for his lack of scoring in other ways.

Stars' Fiddler Expected To Play Saturday

News: Coach Lindy Ruff said that Vernon Fiddler (upper body) is "probably ready" to play Saturday vs. the Sharks, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler was a full-go during Friday's practice, skating on the fourth line alongside Shawn Horcoff and Alex Chiasson. With Ryan Garbutt nursing an undisclosed injury and at risk of missing Saturday's game, expect the Stars to officially activate Fiddler following morning skate.

Stars' Fiddler Skates Again Thursday

News: Vernon Fiddler (upper body) put in another hard skate Thursday, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: With Vernon Fiddler gradually ramping up his on-ice activity the last few days, he'll attempt to put in a full practice Friday. If all goes well, he'd likely be activated from IR and play Saturday against the Sharks.

Stars' Fiddler Skates Tuesday Morning

News: Despite being placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Vernon Fiddler was able to skate earlier in the day, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler has been skating for a full week now, and though he's not completely recovered from the upper-body injury, it appears his stay on IR will be a brief one. A return later this week could be a possibility.

Stars Place Fiddler On IR

News: Vernon Fiddler (upper body) was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Dec. 7 by the Stars on Tuesday.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler sustained the upper-body injury on Dec. 7 against the Flyers. There's no timetable for his absence right now, but the backdating means he could be on IR fairly temporarily.

Stars' Fiddler Skates Tuesday

News: Vernon Fiddler (upper body) skated Tuesday morning, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: Coach Lindy Ruff indicated that Vernon Fiddler performed better than the team anticipated after suffering the upper-body injury Saturday against Philadelphia. He'll sit out Tuesday against the Blackhawks, but could be available later in the week if he continues to make decent progress.

Stars' Fiddler Likely Out For Week

News: Vernon Fiddler (upper body) will likely be out this week, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler suffered the injury Saturday, and it sounds as if he may be out for a few games. A stint on injured reserve could be in the veteran forward's future.

Stars' Fiddler Leaves With Upper-Body Injury

News: Vernon Fiddler left Saturday's game with an upper-body injury, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Stars' Fiddler Assuming Bigger Role

News: Vernon Fiddler assisted twice in Tuesday's win over Anaheim. He also went plus-2 while winning 12 of 17 face-offs.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler dominated at the dot and snapped a seven-game pointless streak -- what more can you ask for? He skated more than 15 minutes for the second straight game in this one, as his role appears to be continually growing in Dallas. Fiddler's averaging under 12 minutes of ice time per game on the year, so this is quite the spike.

Stars' Fiddler Posts Minus-2 Rating In OT Win

News: Vernon Fiddler posted a minus-2 rating in 12:17 of ice time in Thursday's shootout win over the Sharks.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler continues to hold down a depth role for the Stars this season, usually working on the third or fourth line. His ice time is down about a minute per game from 2012-13, resulting in just eight shots on goal over six contests.

Fiddler Active In Dallas Win

News: Vernon Fiddler posted two assists in Friday's win over Anaheim, giving him three assists in the last two games.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler missed two games with a minor injury the last week, but has three of his season's nine points over the last two games. Odds are Fiddler will be counted on to stop the opposition more than create offense, but Dallas will need scoring from somewhere after trading Jaromir Jagr and Derek Roy.
