The Stars have recalled left wing Francis Wathier from the AHL's Texas Stars because some Dallas forwards are battling the flu. The 12 forwards who have been in the lineup recently and Wathier will travel to St. Louis.
"With the sniffles and stuff guys have, we just want to make sure," Gulutzan said.
Defenseman Philip Larsen (concussion) and Tomas Vincour (knee) both took part in Sunday's optional practice in Frisco. Both players have been skating on their own recently, but this was the first time both players had practiced since being injured.
"They should be another three or four days," Gulutzan said.
