Stars' Braden Holtby: Doing off-ice workouts

Holtby (lower body) is doing off-ice workouts, but he has not resumed skating, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports. Holtby has been out of action since March 12, and it doesn't sound like his return is all that close. The 32-year-old isn't expected to be ready before the end of the regular season, so Jake Oettinger and Scott Wedgewood will be tasked with getting the Stars over the bump and into the playoffs. Holtby remains on long-term injured reserve.

Stars' Braden Holtby: Lands on LTIR

Holbty (lower body) was placed on long-term injured reserve Monday, Brien Rea of Bally Sports Southwest reports. Dallas' acquisition of Scott Wedgewood makes more sense now that Holtby is considered week-to-week and could be out for the foreseeable future. The veteran netminder hasn't played since March 4 when he stopped 39 of 42 shots against the Jets. Jake Oettinger will see most of the work while Holtby is out.

Stars' Braden Holtby: Remains day-to-day

Holtby (lower body) is still considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday's game versus Montreal, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports. Holtby has missed the last four games with a lower-body issue, and at this point there's no telling when he might be ready to get back between the pipes. Jake Oettinger will likely continue to operate as the Stars' workhorse in goal until Holtby is cleared to return.

Holtby (lower body) took part in morning skate but will not dress for Tuesday's game in Toronto, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports. While Holtby remains out, Jake Oettinger will continue to hold down the No. 1 spot in the Dallas crease and be backed up by Adam Scheel.

Braden Holtby No Longer Available in Trade out of Dallas

It’s not clear if Braden Holtby was actually ever officially available in trad ahead of this season’s NHL Trade Deadline, but the Dallas Stars are very unlikely to trade him now considering the injury news on Anton Khudobin. The Stars have announced that Khudobin will undergo right arthroscopy and labral repair. He will be out for six months. Seeing as the Stars are still in a playoff hunt, Holtby will be needed down the stretch and unless the Stars are already writing off the season, a trade simply doesn’t make sense.

Braden Holtby gets the start in key matchup against the Jets

WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- The Stars are 16-5-3 in one-goal games this year. It's especially relevant when you consider the Stars and Winnipeg Jets have gone past regulation in all three games this season. Dallas led the NHL with 14 overtime/shootout losses last season but has found a way to go 9-3 in games past regulation this season.

Stars' Braden Holtby: No rust after gap between starts

Holtby stopped 39 of 42 shots in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Jets. Holtby hadn't started since Feb. 13, a span of nearly three weeks as Jake Oettinger played in the last seven games. The 32-year-old Holtby was tested often but met the challenge, and he got the win as Jason Robertson completed a hat trick in overtime. Holtby improved to 10-10-1 with a 2.78 GAA and a .913 save percentage in 24 outings. The veteran netminder may not see as many starts as he's used to, but he can still be solid in a backup role for fantasy managers in deeper formats or those that already roster Oettinger. The Stars' road trip continues Sunday in Minnesota.

Could veteran goalies Braden Holtby, Anton Forsberg be traded?

Two of the four new names on Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff’s trade targets ranking are goaltenders, namely Braden Holtby of the Dallas Stars and Anton Forsberg of the Ottawa Senators. Holtby has had a nice bounce-back campaign in Dallas after being bought out by the Canucks last summer. In his 21 starts this season Holtby has a .912 save percentage and a 2.78 goals against average, strong improvement from his .889/3.67 marks in Vancouver. But his future in Dallas is clouded by the emergence of 23-year-old first-round-pick Jake Oettinger. (As well as the looming presence of Anton Khudobin, the goalie who led the Stars to the 2020 Stanley Cup Final, in the AHL.) In an interview with Pierre LeBrun of the Athletic, Stars General Manager Jim Nill noted that Oettinger has “settled in” with the Stars, and LeBrun also ponders the possibility of Dallas dealing a goaltender.

Jake Oettinger's time has arrived, and Braden Holtby is here for it

The way the young netminder was tracking the puck and handling deflections right from the start was a sign of good things to come, and boy was it ever. The Stars slayed the dragon that night, defeating the Avs 4-1 at Ball Arena to become the only team this season to beat them twice in regulation.

Stars' Braden Holtby: No help in loss

Holtby allowed three goals on 29 shots in Sunday's 4-0 loss to the Avalanche. Holtby was always going to have a tough time against the Western Conference's best offense, but the lack of support from his Stars teammates didn't help the cause. Holtby hadn't played in the last four games due a lower-body injury that saw him eased back into action. He's now 9-10-1 with a 2.78 GAA and a .912 save percentage in 23 appearances. The Stars face the Avalanche again Tuesday, and while it's likely Jake Oettinger will get a turn in goal for that contest, head coach Rick Bowness's goalie deployments remain hard to predict.
