Stars place Ott on IR

The Dallas Stars placed forward Steve Ott on injured reserve Thursday.

Ott has been sidelined with a lower-body injury since a game against the New Jersey Devils on October 29.

In 11 games prior to the setback, he recorded two goals and eight points with a team-high 42 hits.

Owners of the best record in the NHL at 11-3-0, Dallas heads to Pittsburgh to take on the Atlantic Division-leading Penguins on Friday.
