Great news for the Dallas Stars: it looks like Tyler Seguin will be able to suit up for their first game of the regular season.

That’s the word from the team’s official Twitter feed, yet it’s not all good news, as Ales Hemsky is unlikely to play in Thursday’s opener against the Anaheim Ducks.

Mark Stepneski provides some extra information regarding Hemsky: it sounds like the oft-injured winger is dealing with a groin issue.

Hemsky is far from the only Stars player dealing with injury issues, as the team brought in Lauri Korpikoski in part because of injuries to Mattias Janmark and Cody Eakin.

Still, considering the scares they faced with Seguin, it’s pretty great to have him back right off the bat.
