Russell (foot) will not play on Tuesday or Thursday.
Russell has missed the last three games and will miss at least the next two contests with a foot injury. The Stars will let Russell heal for a bit longer, since they are locked into the playoff picture.
The Stars have acquired Kris Russell from the Flames for Jyrki Jokipakka, Brett Pollock and a conditional second round pick.
Russell was 15 points (4G / 11A) in 51 games with the Flames this season. The pending unrestricted free agent is known for his fearlessness to block shots, where he currently ranks second in the NHL with 174. He will likely slide in as a second-pairing guy in Dallas, which will bump Johnny Oduya to the third pair.
