A Squabble in Dallas

From Mike Heika’s blog at the Dallas Morning News,

Jeff Halpern is responsible for Mike Smith’s injury, but the Stars said it was not a fight. Halpern and Smith were playing ``the rebound game’’ after practice when the two started to get very competitive. Halpern then (they say) accidentally slashed Smith while going for a puck that was in the air. That led to a verbal confrontation which was very heated. I was in the locker room, so I didn’t see it.

Smith is listed as day to day, but the plan is for Turco to take the next four games. With the way the games are scheduled after that, Turco could actually play every game for the rest of October. A lot will depend upon how well he plays and how hurt Smith is.

And from the Stars, this announcement:

Dallas Stars General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today that the club has activated center Mike Ribeiro from the injured reserve list and placed goaltender Mike Smith on injured reserve, retro-active to October 9.
