Friday update: Loui Eriksson out tonight

Stars forward Loui Eriksson was scheduled to play in tonight's preseason game against Colorado at the American Airlines Center, but he will sit out due to a hip flexor. He is day-to-day.

Taking Eriksson's place in the lineup tonight will be Brian Sutherby.

I am not sure how the lines will play out, but this what was expected to be used before Eriksson went out.

Neal-Richards-Eriksson

Brunnstrom-Benn-Ott

Cheechoo-Gagnon-Segal

Gazdic-Roman-Sceviour

Grossman-Robidas

Srkastins-Blindenbacher

Woywitka-Fortunus

Lehtonen (expected to play entire game)

Bachman (backup)

Sutherby took some shifts with Aaron Gagnon and Brandon Segal in practice this morning, so we'll see what they roll out tonight.

Kari Lehtonen gets the start tonight and is expected to go the distance. It will be interesting to see how he looks in his first preseason action.

The game is being carried on Denver radio station KRWZ and you should be able to listen live here. I'll have updates from the AAC on the blog and via my twitter account (@andrewsdsp).
