Patrik Nemeth Out for Season; "Severe is an Understatement"

Former Texas Star Jamie Oleksiak appears to have cemented his roster spot with news of Nemeth injury

When asked about Patrik Nemeth's injury, Lindy Ruff replied that "severe is an understatement." With that assessment, it is no surprise that Nemeth will be missing the rest of the 2014-15 regular season for the Dallas Stars.

Jamie Oleksiak appears to have truly won his roster spot for good, although under less than ideal circumstances. For now, Jyrki Jokipakka will also stay in Dallas until Sergei Gonchar is healthy. That could be another several weeks. Estimates at the start of the season put him at 3-5 weeks away, but he hasn't started skating yet after fracturing his ankle in the preseason.
