Moen scored his third goal of the season and had an assist in Saturday's win over the Predators.

Moen has now scored in back-to-back games after missing significant time with an upper-body injury. Don't get too excited though, as the 32-year-old has just nine points in 42 games and is currently being used in a fourth-line role. Considering he's never potted more than 11 goals in his career, Moen retains fantasy value in only the very deepest of leagues.

Moen (upper body) was deemed to be a healthy scratch in Monday's win over the Sabres, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

After he was activated from injured reserve last Thursday, the implication seemed to be that Moen was healthy, but he still hasn't been used in the Stars' last three games. Instead, it appears to be just a case where coach Lindy Ruff opted to stick with his current lineup, which has begun to gel in March. Moen could have a decent chance at playing Wednesday in Calgary if Jamie Benn's undisclosed injury ends up keeping him out of action.

Moen didn't skate on a regular line during Thursday's morning skate and isn't expected to play later in the evening against the Penguins, but his activation from IR indicates he could soon be back in the lineup. The winger, who has six points over 40 games this season, will usually be confined to a fourth-line role when he gets the chance to play.

Moen (upper body) was present for Tuesday's practice, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Coach Lindy Ruff said Moen (upper body) is not progressing from his injury as quickly as the Stars anticipated, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Moen resumed skating earlier this week, but Ruff's words would seem to suggest that he's still a bit far off a return from full-contact practice. The winger, who spent time on IR earlier this month with a lower-body ailment, returned to action Feb. 14 and lasted only three games before sustaining the new injury.

Moen (upper body) resumed skating Wednesday, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

While it represents a positive step in the recovery process for Moen, it still sounds like he's not as far along as the Stars' other injured wingers who are skating, Ales Hemsky and Patrick Eaves. Moen's return to action probably won't come until next week at the earliest.
