Dallas Stars captain Brendan Morrow out indefinitely with wrist injury

Morrow suffered the injury when he was stepped on in Dallas’ 2-1 loss to Chicago on Tuesday night. He was discharged from a Chicago hospital on Wednesday morning and returned to Dallas, where he will be monitored and re-evaluated by the team’s medical staff.

In 27 games for Dallas this season, Morrow has 10 goals and 10 assists for 20 points. The native of Carlyle, Sask., signed a US$24.6-million, six-year contract over the summer and replaced Mike Modano as Stars captain.
