Goligoski said that getting out on the ice has helped him understand that he should be able to manage the injury pretty well. The injured thumb is on his left hand and he is a left-handed shooter. So while it will affect how he snaps a wrister, it will not get the force of poke checking (which he will do with his right hand).

Goligoski should return at some point over the next two weeks. At this point he is just trying to be careful with the injury in order to not hurt himself even more.

Alex Goligoski (broken thumb) and Adam Burish (broken hand) skated at after practice. Goligoski said he gets his cast off on Friday. Gulutzan said Goligoski possibly could return at some point during the upcoming road trip, which runs from December 8-16.

Good news for the Stars and Goligoski owners. The offensive defenseman scored two goals and six points in 15 games prior to going down.

Dallas Stars defenseman Alex Goligoski left Friday night's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins with a hand injury suffered in the first period. "He's going to have some X-rays (on his hand), but I think he's going to be out for a little bit," said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan

Tough break for Goligoski, who has two goals and six points through 14 games. Look for Sheldon Souray and Trevor Daley to move into a larger role offensively and for Adam Pardy to draw back into the lineup.
