Major Help On The Way For Stars

It's a fantastic day for the Dallas Stars. Miro Heiskanen, Jason Robertson, Luke Glendening, Ryan Suter, Radek Faksa, Roope Hintz, Jani Hakanpaa, Esa Lindell, Joel Kiviranta, and Michael Raffl have all exited COVID-19 protocol. 

During the holiday break, the Stars were hit immensely hard with the virus. In total, 11 players entered protocols, but now, all but Jamie Benn are set to return. The Stars are also not scheduled to play until January 6th's contest against the Florida Panthers. By then, there's certainly a chance that Benn could exit them as well. 

At this juncture, the Stars are just hoping that no more players enter it from here. At this time, they sport a 15-12-2 record and are sixth in the Central Division. They are fighting for a playoff spot, but do have many teams from the Western Conference to climb for that to happen. Thus, they desperately need to be healthy. 

Nevertheless, this is just excellent news for the Stars!
