Jim Nill On Rich Peverley

via the Dallas Stars,

Rich Peverley is resting comfortably and being monitored at UT Southwestern St. Paul. He is currently undergoing testing to discover what triggered the cardiac event last night.

The focus of all the testing and monitoring is being dedicated to finding the cause of the event and a long-term solution to rectify the problem.

We do not have any more specifics at the moment.

Rich has been communicating with his teammates and friends. He is extremely grateful for all of the prayers and support that he’s received from fans and friends alike.

Not A Good Day For Kari Lehtonen

from Mark Stepneski of Inside Edge at the Dallas Stars' website,

“We know he’s not doing that well, so we have to make a decision later on today … as far as calling somebody up,” Ruff said after Sunday’s practice.

A few hours later the Stars made the decision, recalling goaltender Cristopher Nilstorp from the Texas Stars of the AHL.

Lehtonen was injured when Wild forward Erik Haula slammed into Lehtonen while driving the net. Lehtonen’s mask came off and his head hit the crossbar. Lehtonen, who suffered a cut to the head, left the game and did not return. Ruff was asked about the specifics of the injury on Sunday.

“It’s just a head injury right now,” Ruff said. “We’ll let him get through the day and see where we are at. It doesn’t look good though.”

With Lehtonen injured, the Stars will turn to Tim Thomas, acquired from Florida at the trade deadline in exchange for goaltender Dan Ellis. Thomas took over in net Saturday night, stopping all six shots he faced and picking up the win as the Stars rallied from a 3-2 deficit to defeat the Wild 4-3.

Video- Zack Kassian Has A Hearing Today For This Hit On Brenden Dillon

The NHL has announced Zack Kassian of the Vancouver Canucks will have a hearing today for this hit on Brenden Dillon of the Dallas Stars.  I do believe it is hearing via a phone call.

Kassian received 5 for boarding and a game, the Canucks lost 6-1.

via Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

On the Brendan Dillon injury (Lindy Ruff):

“I was relieved to get him back.  It was definitely a shot from behind.  Those are tough hits and the best retribution is make the other team play on the power play.  He didn’t come from a long way but Dillon was in a bad position when he got hit.”

Jim Nill On The Trade Deadline

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

Now, with some significant injuries that need to be tended, teams are going to get serious about addressing trades.

While Nill said he doesn’t sense an immediate flood of trades on Monday, he understands the powder keg the trade deadline creates.

“I think it’s going to be slow, but it just takes one team to do something,” Nill said. “We’ll see what happens. It’s very quiet right now. I think teams are going to come back and nobody really knows what they have. Some teams have injuries, some teams could still get injuries. Everyone has three or four games under their belt before the deadline, so I think more things will happen then (closer to the deadline).”
