Travis Moen LW DAL 2 Days

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.

Moen was an unlikely offensive contributor Tuesday, picking up assists on two crucial goals during a second-period comeback that led to a 5-4 win over Ottawa.

Moen's been slightly more productive in Dallas than he was in Montreal to start this year, but that's not saying much -- he has just five points in 20 games as a Star, and you can't even count on that much production from the bottom-six forward.

Moen was credited with an assist in Saturday's 7-1 win over the Wild.

Nearly every player in the Stars' lineup had some form of offensive contribution in their destruction of the Wild, so it's not overly surprising that even some of their fourth-liners got in the act. What's more confounding is that Moen, who had been without a point in his first 21 games of the season, now has tallied a goal and two assists over his last four contests. It amounts to little more than a nice run for Moen, whose limited ice time and greater penchant for checking shouldn't present many scoring opportunities going forward.

Moen (upper body) was a healthy scratch for Wednesday's game against the Canucks.

Moen was forced out of Saturday's game with the injury, but he's since resumed practicing with the team. The 32-year-old should slot back in on the fourth line at some point in the near future, but he'll likely bow in and out of the lineup moving forward.

Moen (upper body) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Devils, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.

Moen was able to skate on his own prior to the Stars' practice on Friday, but since he still hadn't received clearance to participate with his teammates, he'll have to sit for a game. The newly-recalled (and similarly-named) Travis Morin will take his spot in the lineup Saturday.
