A few notes on Friday's Dallas Stars practice. Some of the heavy minute guys didn't skate today. Among that group which took a bit of a break was Kari Lehtonen, Brenden Morrow, Stephane Robidas, Mike Ribeiro, Michael Ryder, Jamie Benn and Steve Ott.

Jake Dowell wasn't on the ice because he was feeling under weather. As for Ott, who got dinged up in the game last night, Stars coach Glen Gulutzan said he was fine and should play Saturday night.

"Otter had a little bump on his hip, but he's OK," said Gulutzan. "He got through the game. I think it scared him more than anything, I think it was a skate. We'll see how he is tomorrow, but he got through the game and I fully expect him to be in there Saturday."

The Stars take on the New Jersey Devils Saturday in their first game of the season against an Eastern Conference team.
