Stars place Brenden Morrow on IR

The Dallas Stars placed captain Brenden Morrow on injured reserve today retroactive to November 21.

Morrow has missed the last two games with what is officially being listed as an upper body injury that he suffered in Monday’s game against Edmonton.

Morrow has been slowed by a variety of issues this season, including his back, knee and infected elbow. The Stars are giving him some time to get completely healthy.

Morrow will miss the next two games – tonight at Phoenix and Monday at Colorado – and the Stars expect him to return to the lineup Thursday when they play Ottawa in Dallas.
