Stars' Radek Faksa: Opens scoring in Game 3

Faksa scored a goal on three shots, added three hits and served two PIM in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Flames in Game 3. Faksa opened the scoring at 8:21 of the first period.

Stars' Radek Faksa: Ends lengthy goal drought

Faksa scored a goal on three shots, levied two hits, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Canadiens. Faksa went 40 games without a goal, and he added just eight assists in that span. The Czech center has struggled to make an impact lower in the lineup this season -- he's spent more time in a bottom-six role than usual. He's at three goals, 14 points, 62 shots on net, 93 hits, 44 PIM and a minus-16 rating through 54 appearances, matching his point total from 55 games last year.

Stars' Radek Faksa: Assists in back-to-back games

Faksa notched an assist, two hits, two blocked shots and two PIM in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Kings. Faksa helped out on a Luke Glendening tally early in the second period. This was Faksa's second assist in as many games after going 16 contests without a point. The defensive center is at 13 points, 48 shots on net, 80 hits, 42 blocked shots, 36 PIM and a minus-12 rating in 48 appearances. He's unlikely to see much more than a third-line role when the Stars are healthy up front.

Faksa notched an assist and two hits in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Sabres. Faksa earned his 10th assist of the season when he set up a Michael Raffl goal in the third period. The helper snapped Faksa's 16-game point drought, a stretch in which he also missed time with a lower-body injury and an illness.

He's added 78 hits, 40 blocked shots and 34 PIM as one of the Stars' more defensively minded forwards.

Stars' Radek Faksa: Expected back Friday

Faksa (lower body) is expected to be in the lineup Friday in Chicago, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports. Faksa has missed the last three games with the injury. Considering he's pointless in his last 12 contests, fantasy managers likely haven't missed the 28-year-old too much. The 2012 No. 13 overall pick will likely jump back into a third- or fourth-line forward role.

Stars' Radek Faksa: Eased back into lineup

Faksa (lower body) logged 13:32 of ice time and added a hit in Friday's 1-0 shootout win over the Blackhawks. All forwards in the game were held off the scoresheet, as the Stars' Jake Oettinger and the Blackhawks' Marc-Andre Fleury kept the game scoreless to the shootout. Faksa missed three games with a lower-body injury, and his ice time was a bit on the low side in his return. The 28-year-old center typically plays a larger role for the Stars, though he is mainly a defensive presence. He has 11 points, 72 hits, 39 blocked shots and a minus-14 rating through 43 appearances.

Stars' Radek Faksa: Doubtful to play Friday

Faksa (undisclosed) is a game-time decision but is doubtful to play Friday against visiting Winnipeg, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports. Faksa is mired in a 12-game point drought, so his absence wouldn't adversely affect too many fantasy managers. Those interested in his status should check back in prior to pregame warmups, but it sounds like the 28-year-old is set to miss at least one contest.
