  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Provides helper in win

    Faksa notched an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Sabres.

    Faksa took a shot that caromed in off Sam Steel midway through the second period, and that goal stood as the game-winner. Since the start of January, Faksa has contributed five points, 16 hits and 13 shots on net through 14 outings. The fourth-liner is at 11 points, 36 shots, 31 hits, 22 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating through 43 contests overall, so he can likely be left on the wire in fantasy.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Chips in with assist

    Faksa notched an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders.

    Faksa helped out on a Jason Robertson tally in the second period. The assist was Faksa's fourth point over the last eight contests, which constitutes as an improvement from the fourth-liner. He's at 10 points, 34 shots on net, 29 hits and 20 blocked shots through 39 outings overall, so he's likely not doing enough in any particular category to help in fantasy.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Posts helper Tuesday

    Faksa recorded a shorthanded assist, two hits, two PIM and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Kings.

    Faksa remained on the fourth line amid the Stars' lineup shuffle, but he was able to pick up his third point in the last five contests. Considering he was scratched three times between Dec. 18 and Jan. 2, it's a positive that he's started to add some offense to his strong defensive play. The center has nine points (four shorthanded) with 31 shots on net, 26 hits, 20 blocked shots, 12 PIM and a plus-2 rating through 36 appearances.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Snags helper in win

    Faksa notched an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 7-2 win over the Wild.

    Faksa set up a Nils Lundkvist tally in the third period. The helper was Faksa's second point in as many games, and he's now produced six points in his last 16 outings. After a couple of healthy scratches around New Year's, the 30-year-old appears to have received the message. The defensive forward has eight points, 27 shots on net and a minus-1 rating through 33 appearances this season.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Finds twine on penalty kill

    Faksa scored a short-handed goal in Monday's 4-0 win over the Wild.

    Faksa was scratched three times over the previous nine games, and he went without a point in his six appearances in that span. The 29-year-old is usually a fourth-line fixture in the lineup, but the Stars are trying to make sure their fourth-line options all rotate in and out of the lineup while the team's forwards are healthy. Faksa is up to three goals, seven points (three shorthanded), 27 shots on net, 18 hits, 19 blocked shots and a minus-3 rating through 32 appearances this season. With an unstable spot in the lineup, he's not a fantasy option.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Picks up assist

    Faksa notched an assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blues.

    Faksa has a helper in each of the last two games, and four of his six points on the year have come since the start of December. The 29-year-old remains in a fourth-line role -- the Stars value his defensive acumen. Faksa has added 21 shots on net, 17 blocked shots, 12 hits, eight PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 25 appearances.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Gathers shorthanded helper

    Faksa produced a shorthanded assist in Friday's 5-4 win over the Senators.

    Faksa sent in Thomas Harley, who buried a shot on a second effort for the Stars' third goal. The helper was Faksa's third point over seven games in December, surpassing his total scoring contributions from the first two months of the season combined. The fourth-liner is a fixture in the lineup for his defense and penalty-killing work. Faksa has five points, 20 shots on net, 17 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating over 24 appearances, and two of his points have come while shorthanded.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Bags goal in loss

    Faksa scored a goal in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Panthers.

    Faksa has a goal and an assist over his last three games, starting December in solid form. The 29-year-old center has doubled his point total for the year in that span -- he's at two goals and two assists through 20 contests. Faksa has added 16 shots on net, 10 hits, 15 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating while averaging just 13:04 of ice time per game on the fourth line, his lowest mark since his rookie year.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Finds helper Saturday

    Faksa notched an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 8-1 win over the Lightning.

    Faksa had been held scoreless with a minus-2 rating over the last seven contests. The 29-year-old snapped the drought by setting up linemate Sam Steel's goal in the third period. As a fourth-line center, Faksa's not expected to put up much offense, but three points over 18 outings is a bit light even for his defensive role. He's added 15 blocked shots, 15 shots on net and a minus-1 rating this season.

    Faksa scored a shorthanded goal and added two PIM in Sunday's 8-3 win over the Wild.

The 29-year-old forward netted the Stars' second goal of Sunday's blowout win. Faksa has added six shots on net, six hits, 12 blocked shots, two PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 10 outings, playing almost exclusively on the fourth line and the penalty kill.

    Faksa (upper body) is skating in a regular jersey at Tuesday's practice, Saad Yousuf of The Athletic reports.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Leaves Tuesday's game

    Faksa required stitches after getting boarded by the Avalanche's Nate Clurman in Tuesday's preseason game, Dallas radio analyst Bruce LeVine reports.
