Julius Honka will make his season debut tonight against the Anaheim Ducks. The young defenseman was a surprise healthy scratch in the first three games of the season.
Roman Polak will come out of the lineup. It appears Honka will start on a pairing with Marc Methot. This means Miro Heiskanen will be paired with Connor Carrick
Jason Dickinson will also rejoin the lineup after being a hwalhea scratch on Tuesday night. With Dickinson in, Roope Hintz will likely be a healthy scratch tonight after a rough game against the Maple Leafs.
Dickinson is expected to start on the shutdown line with Radek Faksa and Tyler Pitlick. Love this line combination for Dallas; hoping the coaching staff this trio a chance to build some chemistry together.
Gemel Smith is now the only skater on the active roster who has yet to appear in a game for the Stars this season.
