Eakin practiced on the Stars top line with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn on Monday.
Head coach Lindy Ruff said he is considering shaking up the lines for Tuesday's game, including putting Eakin on that top line. Seguin and Benn have no points and are a combined minus-6 so far. If Eakin gets moved up that should certainly help him produce and makes him a nice one-day fantasy league option.
