  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Provides helper Thursday

    Heiskanen notched an assist in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Senators.

    Heiskanen has a point in each of his last four games, picking up two goals and an assist in that span. The 24-year-old defenseman had the secondary helper on Joe Pavelski's goal late in the first period. Heiskanen had an uneven start to the season and missed time due to injury in January, but he's been pretty steady of late. He's at 35 points, 109 shots on net, 64 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating through 47 outings overall.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Scores lone goal in loss

    Heiskanen scored a power-play goal on five shots and went minus-2 in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Rangers.

    Heiskanen got the new father boost, but the rest of the Stars couldn't solve Igor Shesterkin. The 24-year-old Heiskanen has three goals and four assists over his last nine games, with two power-play points in that span. Overall, he has 34 points (12 on the power play) with 109 shots on net, 64 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating through 46 appearances in a top-pairing role this season.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Ready to rock

    Heiskanen (personal) will return to action Tuesday against the Rangers, Sean Shapiro of EP Rinkside reports.

    Heiskanen missed Monday's loss to the Bruins to be present for the birth of his first child, but he'll return to his usual featured role Tuesday, skating on the top pairing and No. 1 power-play unit versus New York. He's picked up six goals and 33 points through 45 contests this season.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Won't play Monday

    Heiskanen will not be in the lineup against Boston on Monday for the birth of his child, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.

    Heiskanen has been fantastic since returning from injury, racking up six points, 26 shots and 10 blocked shots in his last eight contests. With the Stars entering a back-to-back while on the road, there is a chance the 24-year-old defenseman won't be ready in time to face the Rangers on Tuesday either. Derrick Pouliot and Alex Petrovic were called up from the minors and will both be in action Monday.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Supplies assist in overtime loss

    Heiskanen notched an assist, four shots on goal an two hits in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers.

    Heiskanen has two goals and four assists over his last eight outings. The 24-year-old defenseman helped out on a Thomas Harley tally in the second period. Those two blueliners have paired well together as a force in all zones for the Stars, and they'll be leaned on even more with Nils Lundkvist (concussion) and Jani Hakanpaa (upper body) questionable heading into the team's upcoming four-game road trip. Heiskanen has 33 points, 104 shots on net, 64 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through 45 outings this season, giving him a reasonable chance at reaching the 50-point mark for the second year in a row.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Lights lamp in win

    Heiskanen scored a goal on three shots, blocked three shots and went plus-2 in Thursday's 9-2 win over the Predators.

    Heiskanen has earned two goals and three assists over seven games since he returned from a lower-body injury. The defenseman's tally Thursday extended the Stars' lead to 5-0 in the second period. He's at six goals, 32 points, 100 shots on net, 63 blocked shots and a plus-4 rating through 44 outings. Heiskanen and Thomas Harley have been the Stars' top pairing lately, and while they can both put up points, Heiskanen no longer has to be the biggest producer on offense from the blue line.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Earns helper in narrow loss

    Heiskanen produced an assist in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    The Stars vacated their net and scored with 1:25 remaining in regulation thanks to Heiskanen's dish to Wyatt Johnston, but it wasn't quite enough for the road team to force overtime. With five goals and 26 assists through 41 games, Heiskanen remains a quality blueliner, but he'll be hard-pressed to come near the career-high 73 points that he supplied Dallas in 2022-23 this year.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Two-point effort against Caps

    Heiskanen recorded two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Capitals.

    In his second game back from a lower-body injury that cost him most of January, Heiskanen helped set up a Wyatt Johnston tally in the first period and a Mason Marchment goal in the second. The 24-year-old blueliner led all Stars skaters in ice time on the afternoon and has reclaimed his spot on the first power-play unit. As long as he stays healthy, Heiskanen's primed for big numbers after the All-Star break.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Scores in return

    Heiskanen scored a goal on four shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Ducks.

    Heiskanen showed no signs of rust in his first appearance following a 10-game absence, leading all Dallas skaters with 25:33 of ice time while tallying the game-tying goal midway through the third period, beating John Gibson with a wrister from the circle in the eventual overtime victory. The 24-year-old Heiskanen had four assists in four games prior to the injury. Overall, he's up to 28 points (five goals, 23 assists) through 38 games this season.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Ready to rock Thursday

    Heiskanen (lower body) will return to action versus Anaheim on Thursday, per Stars radio analyst Bruce LeVine.

    Heiskanen returns after a three-week absence in which he missed 10 games. Heiskanen will quarterback the first power play, replacing Thomas Harley, who will move down to the second unit. Joel Hanley will come out of the lineup to accomodate the return of Heiskanen. Heiskanen has four goals and 27 points in 37 games this season.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Back before All-Star break?

    Coach Pete DeBoer is hopeful Heiskanen (lower body) will be able to return to action Thursday against Anaheim or Saturday versus the Capitals, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.

    Heiskanen will miss a 10th straight contest Tuesday against Detroit, but it's looking likely that he'll be able to return for at least one game prior to the All-Star break. The 24-year-old defender has racked up four goals and 27 points through 37 outings this season.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Expected to travel

    Heiskanen (lower body) continues to skate and will travel with the team for its upcoming four-game road trip, Stars radio host Owen Newkirk reports Tuesday.

    Heiskanen isn't guaranteed to return from his injury during that four-game trip, but it seems unlikely the blueliner would travel with the Stars if there wasn't at least a chance of him suiting up. Still, the Finn will be out of action for his sixth consecutive game when the Stars face the Kings on Tuesday. Before getting hurt, Heiskanen was mired in a nine-game goal drought but still racked up seven helpers and 20 shots over that stretch.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Out week-to-week

    Per Saad Yousuf of The Athletic, Heiskanen (lower body) is considered week-to-week.

    The good news is that Heiskanen will not require surgery and the injury is not season ending. Heiskanen was injured Thursday versus Colorado. He had four assists in his last four games, giving him 27 points in 37 games this season. He will be replaced by Thomas Harley on the first power play while Esa Lindell could see some time on the second unit.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Injured in Thursday's game

    Heiskanen (lower body) is questionable to return to Thursday's game versus the Avalanche.

    The injury announcement came in the third period, so it's not looking good for Heiskanen to make it back. He crashed into goalie Scott Wedgewood early in the third and apparently the defenseman got the worst of the collision. Heiskanen had one assist in 14:38 of ice time prior to the injury. The Stars host the Predators on Saturday for their next game.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Collects two helpers

    Heiskanen notched a pair of assists, two shots on goal, two blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Sunday's 8-1 win over the Blackhawks.

    Heiskanen got his offense taken care of early, helping out on tallies by Ryan Suter and Sam Steel over the first half of the contest. This was Heiskanen's third multi-point effort in his last nine games, a span in which he's produced three goals and seven helpers. The defenseman is up to 26 points (nine on the power play), 73 shots on net, 52 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating over 35 appearances. His recent play is much more in line with the 73-point campaign he had in 2022-23 when compared to his sluggish start this season.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Helps out on game-winner

    Heiskanen registered an assist, four shots on goal and two blocked shots in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

    Heiskanen helped out on Roope Hintz's tally in the dying seconds of overtime. The helper was Heiskanen's first point in three games, but he's been solid with three tallies and eight assists over 13 appearances in December. The defenseman is up to 24 points, 71 shots on net, 50 blocked shots, 25 hits and a minus-5 rating through 34 outings overall while playing a huge role on the top pairing.

    Heiskanen has enjoyed a strong December with three goals and seven assists over 10 games this month.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Registers helper Saturday

    Heiskanen notched an assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blues.

    Heiskanen has five points over his last three games. The defenseman set up Evgenii Dadonov's game-tying tally in the third period. Heiskanen's recent uptick in offense has him up to 21 points, 58 shots on net, 45 blocked shots and a minus-5 rating through 29 contests overall. He may not get back to the 70-point mark this season but should still be a solid blueliner in fantasy.
