Sergei Zubov is tentatively scheduled to return to the Dallas lineup on Saturday.
Zubov underwent arthroscopic hip surgery in mid-September and has been out of the lineup ever since. Zubov was put on the long-term injured list at the start of the season and cannot return to the lineup until Saturday. The move gave the Stars salary cap relief. Look for Zubov to start slowly. He should be paired with sophomore blueliner Matt Niskanen. Get ready to activate Zubov, who is a top-ten fantasy defenseman when healthy.
