Vernon Fiddler reportedly wants out of Dallas, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.
McKenzie reported that Fiddler went to the team's brass two weeks ago to request to be moved unless he gets more ice time and a bigger role. Fiddler is eligible for unrestricted free agency in the summer.

Vernon Fiddler could be playing in his last season with the Dallas Stars.
The 2013-14 campaign is the final season of his three-year deal and he is set to make $1.8 million. Fiddler probably wouldn't demand much in terms of salary to stay, but there may not be room on the roster for him moving forward. The Stars will have Chris Mueller working in their minor-league system and they will need to keep a spot warm for prospect Radek Faksa. Landing Tyler Seguin, Rich Peverley and Shawn Horcoff in off-season trades also added to Dallas' depth at center, which will keep Fiddler further down the depth chart entering the year.

Vernon Fiddler had a goal, but it wasn't enough in the Dallas Stars' 2-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night.
Fiddler's goal was only his eighth of the season, but it came at 7:44 of the third period with the Stars down by two, so it gave them a legitimate chance to at least record a point with another one. Unfortunately, Dallas only mustered eight shots in the final frame. Eric Nystrom and Kari Lehtonen had the assists on the goal.
