Sheet Player News (Feb 18)

Box 14 defenseman Niklas Grossman has been out of the Dallas Stars' line-up all week, dealing with a hip flexor injury. Grossman has also been penciled in to miss Saturday's contest for the Stars as well, which goes in Vancouver against the Canucks.  Grossman is still considered to be out day-to-day for the time being, but there isn't much of a timetable given for his return.

A couple of new healthy scratches from the desert on Thursday night, as both Box 8 forward Taylor Pyatt and Box 13 defenseman Adrian Aucoin joined Box 9 forward Kyle Turris in the press box for the game against the Thrashers.  It has been a bit of a revolving door for healthy scratches in Phoenix, trying to give incentives to play better or else a trip upstairs for a game is necessary, keeping all the players that want to play on the ice for the next game.  I would assume that both Pyatt and Aucoin would figure back in right away, but there likely is no hurry for Turris to get back into the line-up.
