Radek Dvorak out for Stars tonight

By Mark Stepneski

Stars forward Radek Dvorak will miss tonight's game in Calgary with an ankle injury that forced him to miss three games earlier this month.

"What a warrior, 17 years in the league and getting shot up in the ankle to get through," said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan. "He had a little aggravation from the last game, we sit him here and that’s four days, close to five, and maybe he can be ready for Edmonton. If not, we can go two more and a get a little more healthier player."

Tomas Vincour is expected to take Dvorak's place on a line with Eric Nystrom and Vernon Fiddler.

Ryan Garbutt, who has been a healthy scratch the last four games, is also expected to be in the lineup tonight as well.

Kari Lehtonen gets the start in goal.

Reilly Smith, signed yesterday to an entry-level contract, skated with the team but is still working on getting a work visa so that he can be eligible to play.

Here's the Stars projected lineup.

Eriksson-Ribeiro-Ryder
Ott-Benn-Burish
Nystrom-Fiddler-Dvorak
Morrow-Dowell-Garbutt

Souray-Robidas
Pardy-Daley
Goligoski-Larsen
