Sheet Player News (Mar. 11)

An ankle injury has now sidelined Dallas Stars forward Radek Dvorak, as he left Saturday night's game against the Anaheim Ducks and wasn't able to return.  The Box 7 forward hasn't had a stellar season with the Stars in 2012, only picking up 21 points (4 goals and 17 assists) in 69 games with the club, but he's likely a key piece to the playoff push, since most teams really enjoy having that veteran presence in the line-up, for all situations.  Consider Dvorak to be day-to-day right now and we'll update his status if it gets to be much worse.

It was seemingly going well for Bobby Butler and his time on the ice for the Senators, but on Saturday night, he made his return to the press box as a healthy scratch. Butler has played in 52 games for the Sens, but has only posted 15 points (6 goals and 9 assists) in that time, which has made the Box 20 forward into less of a favourite among the team's coaching staff. Butler has been brought in to score points, but he has not been able to do so at a reasonable pace this season.  His participation in the playoff pool looks doubtful, at best.
