The Stars have placed Patrick Eaves (lower-body) on injured reserve.
Eaves was moved to the Stars’ top line on Tuesday but he suffered a lower-body injury and did not return. Eaves has been moved to IR to create a roster opening to recall Curtis McKenzie. With Eaves out, Patrick Sharp may be moved up to the top line with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn.
Eaves left Friday’s game with a head injury and did not return.
Eaves was hit in the head by a shot from teammate John Klingberg. He was down the ice for a few minutes before being helped to the locker room. Eaves was then taken to the hospital for x-rays. Coach Lindy Ruff said he should know more on Saturday but it looks like Eaves is going to “miss some time.”
Eaves (ankle) will be back in the Stars lineup on Tuesday.
Eaves has been out since December 2nd with an ankle injury, which cost him exactly eight weeks. He will be back in tonight and is expected to start on the Stars’ top line with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn. Prior to getting hurt, Eaves had three goals and five assists in 19 games.
Eaves, who was listed as out indefinitely, did not require surgery on his injured ankle. He will miss one to two months, so don’t expect to see him back in the lineup until mid-January at the earliest.

The Red Wings have traded Patrick Eaves, Calle Jarnkrok and a third-round pick to the Predators for David Legwand.
Eaves had served as a healthy scratch in the last four games with Detroit and will now fight for playing time in Nashville. He has two goals and three assists in 25 games with the Red Wings this season. The Red Wings moved Eaves to open up a spot on the roster for Legwand's arrival.
