Dallas Stars captain Brenden Morrow will miss at least one week.

The Stars placed Morrow on injured reserve Friday evening and recalled right winger Tomas Vincour from the Texas Stars of the AHL.

Morrow has been struggling with a neck/shoulder issue and missed the last game before the All-Star break. He played in the first two games out of the break -- at Anaheim on Wednesday and at San Jose on Thursday -- but didn't register a shot on goal in either contest.

Vincour has three points (one goal, two assists) in 18 games with Dallas this season. He was assigned to Texas at the All-Star break and played three games, registering one goal and one assist.

Vincour ranks third on Texas in goal scoring this season with 11 in 18 games.
