The Stars have signed Radek Faksa to a five-year deal worth $16.25 million ($3.25M AAV).
Faksa is "unfit to play" in Game 6 vs. the Lightning.
Faksa has not appeared in a game during the series, so it's not surprising that he won't be available for a must-win Game 6. Nicholas Caamano will stick in the lineup with Faksa out.
Faksa is unfit to play in Game 5 vs. the Golden Knights.
Faksa missed Game 4 and has already been ruled out of tonight's Game 5. Roope Hintz was banged up in Game 4 and is questionable tonight, so the Stars could be really thin at centre if he's a no go. At that point, they will likely go with 11 forwards and seven defensemen and we would likely see a lot of Tyler Seguin and Joe Pavelski double shifting on the fourth line.
