FRISCO, Tex. – Dallas Stars
General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today that the club has placed left wing Brenden Morrow
on the injured reserve list. Morrow is out indefinitely after successful surgery late Tuesday night to repair severed tendons in his right wrist.
Morrow sustained the severed tendons when he was stepped on with a skate in Dallas’ game at Chicago on Tuesday. He was discharged from a Chicago hospital on Wednesday morning and returned to Dallas Wednesday afternoon. He will be re-evaluated by the Stars’ medical staff on Friday afternoon.
In 27 games for Dallas this season, Morrow has recorded 10 goals and 10 assists for 20 points with 27 penalty minutes. He currently ranks tied for second on the club in goals and game-winning goals (3), and is tied for third in power play goals (5). During the 2005-06 season, Morrow set new career highs in assists (42) and points (65) and led the club in plus/minus (+30). He was the only player in the NHL last season to register more than 20 goals and 125 penalty minutes.
Dallas’ first round pick (No. 25 overall) in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft, Morrow has skated in 479 career NHL games and has posted 130 goals and 159 assists for 289 points with 783 penalty minutes. The native of Carlyle, Sask., has also skated in 53 career Stanley Cup Playoff games with the Stars, notching 24 points (six goals and 18 assists) and 60 penalty minutes.
