Injured defenseman Sergei Zubov back skating with teammates

Defenseman Sergei Zubov, who is out with a hip injury and has missed the Stars first nine games, skated with his teammates for the first time this season.

Zubov must sit out until at least Nov. 1 because he was placed on the long-term injured reserve list at the start of the season.
