Hudler has already missed five games due to illness and only returned for two games, before finding himself back out of the lineup. There’s no indication whether or not he is dealing with the same illness as before or a new one, but either way he won’t play vs. the Blues.
Hudler (illness) is expected to return to the Stars’ lineup on Saturday.
Hudler has missed the last five games with an illness, but says he is feeling much better and is likely to return to the lineup tonight. In order for Hudler to play, he will need to be activated from IR first.
Hudler (illness) returned to practice on Wednesday.
Hudler has missed the last four games with an illness, but he returned to practice on Wednesday and could be ready to return on Thursday in Winnipeg. The Stars are banged up, so Hudler’s return would be a welcomed return.
Hudler missed the Stars’ practice on Monday and is doubtful for Tuesday’s game in Nashville. Hudler has no points or shots and is a minus-3 in his first two games with the Stars. Monitor his status during the Stars' morning skate.
The Stars signed Jiri Hudler to a one-year deal worth $2 million.
Hudler had a career-year in 2014-15, picking up 31 goals and 45 assists (76 points), but struggled to come close to repeating those numbers last season. He had 35 points (10G / 25A) in 53 games with the Flames before being traded to the Panthers at the deadline—he added 11 points in 19 games with Florida. He now signs with Dallas, where he figures to battle with some of their young forwards for a top-6 role.
The Panthers have acquired Jiri Hudler from the Flames for a 2016 second round pick and a 2018 fourth round pick.
Hudler, 32, has had a down season after posted a career-high 76 points (31G / 45A) in 78 games last season. He has 10 goals and 25 assists (35 points) in 53 games this season and now he heads to Florida where he will be part of a Stanley Cup bid before becoming a free agent this summer. Look for him to play on a line with Nick Bjugstad.
Hudler (groin) will be back in the Flames lineup on Tuesday.
Hudler missed Saturday’s game and four of the last five, but he will play tonight in New Jersey. Hudler will skate on the third line with Markus Granlund and Mason Raymond and should see some power play time.
