If Segal clears waivers Tuesday morning, the Stars will send him to the Texas Stars of the AHL.
"We don't want to carry 14 [forwards], and we want Brandon to play, too," Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk said.
Segal is on a two-way contract, and he makes $550,000 when he plays in the NHL and $130,000 at the AHL level.
Segal, who has nine points (4 goals, 5 assists) in 36 NHL games this season, was claimed off waivers by the Stars from the Los Angeles Kings last season.
