Texas Stars getting healthier in time for game with OKC

Comment is Closed

The Texas Stars are getting healthier and the lineup is going to reflect that this evening against the Oklahoma City Barons.

Kevin Henderson and Jussi Rynnas will play their first game since fighting the flu, while Curtis McKenzie will be back in the lineup after spending extended time in Dallas.

Brett Ritchie is still out with a lower-body injury, but Texas will field a lineup this evening that is much closer to what was expected before the start of the season.

McKenzie will be the top line left with Travis Morin and Brendan Ranford, while Henderson was practicing on the right wing this morning with Greg Rallo and Radek Faksa.

Justin Dowling will center the second line between Matej Stransky and Scott Glennie. Gemel Smith will center the fourth line between Branden Troock and Derek Hulak.

Defensively the Stars were rotating pairs this morning. It appears Mike Dalhuisen will be the healthy scratch, but it could be William Wrenn.

Tonight’s projected lineup:
McKenzie-Morin-Ranford
Stransky-Dowling-Glennie
Rallo-Faksa-Henderson
Troock-Smith-Hulak

Gaunce-Fortunus
Meech-Honka
Valentine-Wrenn

Rynnas
