Daley (groin) was on the ice for morning skate and looks poised to return to the lineup Tuesday against the Canadiens.
Daley returned to practice Monday after missing the Stars' final three games prior to the All-Star break. The extra time off during the break was likely all Daley needed to get fully healthy, and he'll now be ready to rejoin Jason Demers on the Stars' second pairing Tuesday. The blueliner leads all Dallas blueliners with 11 goals on the season.

Daley is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday against the Blue Jackets, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.
Daley appears on track to return for the first game of the second half despite an earlier report indicating he faced an uncertain timetable heading out of the break. The defenseman has shined over 43 games this season, posting 11 goals and 10 assists. He will look to match his first half totals starting with Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets, assuming he indeed returns.

Daley (undisclosed) may not be ready to return following the All-Star break, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.
Daley can officially be ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Bruins with the news, and could miss beyond that. The blueliner has starred this season, posting 11 goals and 10 assists through 43 games. However, the injury is likely somewhat serious given the uncertain timetable, though the team has decided not to reveal the exact nature.

Daley (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Capitals, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
As expected, Daley wasn't on the ice for the Stars' morning skate and will be forced to miss his first game of the season. His chances of playing in Sunday's contest against the Blackhawks wouldn't seem to be high either, creating an opportunity for either David Schlemko or Jyrki Jokipakka to make their mark on the Dallas blue line.

Daley sustained an undisclosed injury during Thursday's loss to the Jets and is doubtful to play Saturday against the Capitals, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
All of Daley, Brett Ritchie and Ales Hemsky sat out Friday's practice after acquiring injuries against the Jets, but coach Lindy Ruff said only Hemsky was likely to be healthy enough to play Saturday. The Stars will reevaluate Daley on Saturday morning before rendering a decision on his status for the game. David Schlemko would replace Daley in the lineup if he's unable to go.

Daley scored his third goal in four games Thursday against Winnipeg, representing the whole of the Dallas offense in a 2-1 loss.
The late-third-period tally brought the game to within one, but that was all the Stars ended up managing. While Daley's fallen off his blistering early-season pace, he's nonetheless among the top goal-scoring defensemen in the league.

Daley had an assist, a plus-1 rating, and a season-low 17:23 in Saturday's 7-1 win over the Wild.
Daley's low minute total can largely be chalked up to the team not pushing him too hard in a game that was out of hand. Especially since Saturday's game was the first of a back-to-back. Don't read too much into his time on ice.

Daley had an assist, two shots, two blocked shots, and 26:57 of ice time in Saturday's win over Montreal.
Daley has been working his way out of a long slump with three assists in the last five games. However, he still hasn't scored in 14 games. Saturday's game was the first time Daley had a positive rating in the last seven games. He's a minus-11 over the last 11 games. He also has had an nine-game stretch during his slump through which he only registered four shots. With ten shots in the last five, he looks like things are starting to trend in the right direction.
