Hanzal had an assist, a shot, a hit, and a blocked shot in Tuesday's shootout loss to Florida.

EDGE Analysis

Hanzal has started to look a little more like the player he was expected to be. In the four games since he returned from injury, he has two assists and an average of 2.5 shots per game. He's not lighting the world on fire, but he's starting to contribute.

Hanzal (lower body) will be in the lineup for Monday's game against Winnipeg, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Having already missed the past three games, Hanzal had originally been ruled out of Monday's contest, but has apparently gotten healthy in time for the game. Brought in to provide the Stars with secondary scoring and reliable play in his own end, Hanzal has been a huge disappointment after 11 games in Dallas, scoring a single goal and owning a minus-9 rating.

Hanzal (lower body) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Sabres and Monday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

That means the earliest Hanzal will return is Friday against the Islanders. Before the injury, he only had one point through 11 games, so arguably the Stars haven't felt that much of an impact offensively.

Hanzal (lower body) will not play in Thursday's road game against the Jets, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Stars have recalled Jason Dickinson from AHL Texas to take Hanzal's roster spot. Once a cant-miss fantasy play, the Czech center has slugged to a minus-9 rating with one goal representing his lone point through 11 games, and unfortunately this latest injury further cuts into his fleeting fantasy value.

As expected, Hanzal (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup against the Canucks on Monday, Ben Kuzma of The Vancouver Province reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering Hanzal has managed a lone goal in 11 outings this season, fantasy owners probably won't feel too much of an impact from his absence. In addition to a lack of offensive production, the center has registered a disappointing minus-9 rating, with his fantasy value limited to hits (19), blocks (10) and shots on goal (19). Gemel Smith will continue to serve as a replacement for Hanzal in the game-day lineup.

Hanzal is questionable for Monday night's contest in Vancouver due to an undisclosed injury, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

There's been very little indication as to what is ailing Hanzal or even how he suffered the injury, so it's tough to speculate his true status for Monday's contest and beyond. The Czech pivot has been a major disappointment since coming over to Dallas from Minnesota, potting just one goal in 11 games thus far. Radek Faksa could see an expanded role should Hanzal sit.

Hanzal failed to register a point for the fifth consecutive game during his team's 4-3 win over Carolina on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

On the season, Hanzal has scored just one goal and has a minus-5 rating through eight games. The 30-year-old forward posted 20 goals and 39 points with Minnesota and Arizona last year, so the rough start is disappointing for Dallas. He'll try to bust out of the slump on Tuesday in Colorado.

Hanzal (lower body) will be in the lineup for Tuesday night's matchup with the Red Wings, Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanzal's injury was never thought to be of much concern and he'll suit up for the contest without missing a game. The 2005 first-round draft pick has had a disappointing start to the 2017-18 campaign, but it's encouraging that he's being trusted on the power play, averaging 2:14 of ice time with the unit thus far.

Hanzal (lower body) is expected to suit up for Tuesday's contest against the visiting Red Wings, Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanzal has had a sluggish start to his debut season with the Stars, going minus-2 without any points through the first two games -- both losses. Still, we'll give him the benefit of the doubt in this case, as he's still getting acclimated to a new organization and it's extremely early in the hockey year.

Hanzal's impairment is now being ruled as a lower body injury, Sports Day Dallas reports.

EDGE Analysis

While coach Ken Hitchcock is still unsure when Hanzal will make it back to the ice, he'll have further medical evaluations Sunday. After recording 39 points in 71 games in 2016-17, the Czech native was a huge addition to the Dallas forward corps, and after an 0-2 start his absence certainly won't help. The earliest he could return is Tuesday against Detroit.
