Things are looking up for the Dallas Stars and defenseman Marc Methot. According to head coach Ken Hitchcock, Methot skated on his own before Tuesday's optional morning practice session and could return to action as soon as Saturday against the Nashville Predators.
With Methot nearing a return from a knee injury, the Stars' back end will get a boost.
Dallas should release another update on the veteran blueliner's status once he's officially activated from injured reserve, but this is certainly heading in the right direction.
In 15 games this season with Dallas, the former Ottawa Senators blue liner has yet to record his name on the scoresheet.
