Morrow off IR, questionable for Saturday


The league’s hottest team is about to get its captain back. Stars forward Brenden Morrow has been activated from injured reserve and could play Saturday against Anaheim.

Dallas is 8-0-1 in its last nine and leads the Pacific Division by three points over Phoenix.

“Right now it’s one day at a time. I got a good skate in today. I’ll see how I feel when I wake up tomorrow,” Morrow said today, as per ESPN Dallas. “I think tomorrow is questionable. If I don’t get in there tomorrow, I am expected in Minnesota [on Tuesday] at least.”

Morrow, 33, has been out since Feb. 2 with neck and back issues.

In other Stars injury news, Steve Ott (back spasms) is questionable for Saturday while defenseman Sheldon Souray is out (lower-body injury).
