Hudler (lower body) isn't expected to rejoin the lineup again this season, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hudler hasn't provided a ton of offensive support for the Stars this season, collecting just 11 points (three goals, eight assists) over 32 tilts with the club. With only two games remaining in the regular season, it shouldn't come as much of a loss for either the club -- who has been eliminated from playoff contention -- or for the majority of fantasy leagues. In addition to the scoring, Hudler finishes the campaign with 27 shots on goal, a minus-3 rating and just four penalty minutes. While he did see some time on the man advantage this season, the 33-year-old will enter free agency this offseason and shouldn't be a prime fantasy target in 2017-18.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has missed the last five games with an upper-body injury, and will make it six Sunday. He'll get a shot at returning Tuesday against Arizona.

Hudler (lower body) is a scratch for Tuesday night's away game against the Canadiens.

EDGE Analysis

Hudler misses his third game in a row and does not have a timetable for return right now. Rookie Remi Elie could continue to see more ice time while Hudler remains on the shelf.

Hudler (lower body) will not play Sunday, Sean Shapiro of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's always disconcerting when a player is ruled out before game day, but so continues the nightmarish season for Hudler in his first go-around with Dallas. He's only played in 32 games, notching three goals with eight assists and a minus-3 rating.

Hudler is out of the lineup for Friday night's contest against the Sharks due to a lower-body injury.

EDGE Analysis

Hudler's injury-plagued season continues with Friday's late scratch. Between his inability to stay in the lineup and his limited production even when he is healthy, he is not a recommended fantasy play at this point in the season.

Hudler had a goal and an assist in a losing effort against Boston on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Hudler's had a rough season between illness and healthy scratches. He's only played 26 games and has been having his minutes limited. However, he has a goal and two assists over the last two games despite seeing only 23:27 of ice time between those two games. He's still a risk to roster, but might be worth keeping an eye on in case he starts to return to form.

Hudler was a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Capitals, as head coach Lindy Ruff searches for stronger play on the puck, Bill Nichols and Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News report.

EDGE Analysis

Hudler has managed just two goals and seven points this season, although both goals and five points have come over the past seven games. Apparently that wasn't good enough progress for Ruff. If you were considering Hudler in deeper fantasy pools based on the recent hot streak, Saturday's healthy scratch should splash cold water on that notion.

With an assist against the Rangers on Tuesday, Hudler's point streak is at three games.

EDGE Analysis

That's good, but he still doesn't look like the player most were hoping for when he signed in Dallas. He didn't take a single shot and saw only 10:24 of ice time. On the season, he's averaging less than a shot per game and has only seven points through 21 games.

Hudler scored a goal and registered an assist through 12:30 of ice time during Monday's win over Los Angeles.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran posted a top-10 finish in points just two years ago, and he hit stride Monday while skating on the No. 1 line. His fantasy value is in limbo because Jamie Benn's (foot) return could quickly bump Hudler to a supporting role again, but Monday's showing highlights Hudler's fleeting uptick in fantasy value. It could also represent a sign of things to come. In deep seasonal leagues, it isn't out of the question to make Hudler a speculative add. He's also a potential low-priced consideration in daily contests while receiving a top-line look.

Hudler skated on the No. 1 line with Tyler Seguin and Jason Spezza during Monday's morning skate, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Seguin and Spezza are the two best healthy scorers for Dallas, so Hudler's fantasy stock receives an instant upgrade with his projected promotion. While there is no guarantee the 33-year-old veteran sticks in the role for the entire game or beyond Monday's date with Los Angeles, Hudler is a potential low-priced flier in daily contests for the game and his production is worth monitoring in deep seasonal leagues.
