Stars' Fiddler Scores Shortie

News: Vernon Fiddler had a shorthanded goal and four shots in Wednesday's win over Boston.
Analysis: That shortie was Vernon Fiddler's seventh goal of the year, surpassing the totals he's posted in his last two seasons. One more goal ties the most goals he's had in a season since 2009-10. He's not Alex Ovechkin, but Fiddler is producing well for fantasy owners who picked him up understanding his where his ceiling is.

Stars' Fiddler Adds Assist In Limited Ice Time

News: Vernon Fiddler added an assist in his 11:09 of ice time in Thursday's win over the Senators.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler is giving you about what'd expect this season. In his ten January games, he posted four goals and two assists. That's about as good as it gets with Fiddler, so if you've rostered him, you should be pleased.

Stars' Fiddler Scores In Second Straight

News: Vernon Fiddler tallied a goal in his second straight game Tuesday against the Bruins.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler still has only six goals in 44 games this season, so consider the streak more coincidental than a sign of greater things to come. The 34-year-old is valued by the Stars for his contributions on the checking line, but his impact can't be easily quantified in most fantasy formats.

Stars' Fiddler To Play Saturday

News: Vernon Fiddler is expected to return to the lineup Saturday against the Capitals, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: Though coach Lindy Ruff indicated Vernon Fiddler was healthy after Thursday's morning skate, the center ended up spending his second consecutive game in the press box. It's likely Fiddler was held out simply as a precaution, and with the extra day of rest, he should now be set to reclaim his spot on the Stars' checking line.

Stars' Fiddler Will Be Available Thursday

News: Vernon Fiddler has recovered enough from a lower-body injury to be available Thursday, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: While Vernon Fiddler will be available, it is unclear if he will actually suit up, as Travis Moen performed admirably in place of Fiddler on Tuesday. As such, the team may elect to scratch Fiddler on Thursday in order to give him some additional rest before making his return. Fiddler has registered 13 points through 41 games with the Stars this season.

Stars' Fiddler Misses Warmups

News: Vernon Fiddler (lower body) was not on the ice for warmups Thursday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler was believed to be ready for Thursday's game, but he wasn't on the ice for warmups. While it could be an indication he is still dealing with the injury, it also could mean he's just a healthy scratch to provide him extra time to heal up. Fiddler has posted 13 points through 41 games this season, a total that will remain through Thursday.

Stars' Fiddler (Lower Body) Practices

News: Vernon Fiddler (lower body) resumed practicing Wednesday, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler said he was feeling better Wednesday, but will skate Thursday morning before a decision on his status for the game later that evening is made. The Stars received a strong outing from Travis Moen in place of Fiddler on Tuesday and likely wouldn't hesitate to use him again Thursday if Fiddler isn't quite 100 percent healthy.

Stars' Fiddler Appears To Be Out Tuesday

News: Vernon Fiddler (lower body) appears to be out for Tuesday's game against the Senators, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Though he was able to get in a skate Tuesday morning, Vernon Fiddler didn't join the Stars for warmups, likely indicating he'll be scratched. Expect Travis Moen to take his spot on Dallas' fourth line.

Stars' Fiddler Questionable For Tuesday

News: Vernon Fiddler (lower body) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Ottawa, Mark Stepneski of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: As are fellow forwards Tyler Seguin (illness) and Jamie Benn (undisclosed injury), which could leave the Stars thin up front depth-wise for Tuesday's contest.

Stars' Fiddler Leaves With Lower-Body Injury

News: Vernon Fiddler left Saturday's game against the Avalanche in the second period due to a lower-body injury and didn't return, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: He managed to pick up an assist in his 5:43 of ice time, ending a three-game point drought. His status for Tuesday's game against the Senators will remain in limbo until the Stars provide an update on his condition.

Stars' Fiddler Strikes Twice In Win

News: Vernon Fiddler had a monster fantasy outing Saturday, scoring a power-play goal, netting an even-strength marker, collecting seven PIM, recording a plus-2 rating, and firing six shots on goal.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler now has 12 points (four goals) in 37 games, to go with a plus-2 rating. While the fourth-line center is a decent play in deeper formats, Fiddler has been too inconsistent to be trusted in most leagues, as he's been pointless in 14 of his last 18 games.

Stars' Fiddler Gets Assists In Back-To-Back Games

News: Vernon Fiddler had an assist, a plus-2 rating and a pair of shots in a 2-0 win over Vancouver on Wednesday.
Analysis: Vernon Fiddler has two goals and seven assists through 30 games. Though just a bit short of his typical scoring pace, he's been about what you'd expect this season.

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.
