Whitney to make Tuesday return for Stars

Frisco, TX (Sports Network) - The Dallas Stars will see some veteran presence return to the lineup in Tuesday's home game with Nashville.

"Ray Whitney is in. Ray Whitney's good to go," said Stars head coach Glen Gulutzan prior to the contest.

Whitney has missed the last 16 games with a hairline fracture in one of his feet, and was placed on injured reserve on Feb. 2.

The 40-year-old led the Stars with six points in eight games this season before the setback.

Gulutzan also ruled out forwards Brenden Morrow and Jamie Benn.
