Stars place C Arnott on IR with sprained ankle

October 10, 2002

VALLEY RANCH, Texas (Ticker) - The Dallas Stars got a tie in their season opener Wednesday, but lost center Jason Arnott.

The Stars on Thursday placed Arnott on injured reserve with a sprained right ankle and announced he will be out of the lineup 10-14 days.

Arnott sustained the injury when he was taken down awkwardly by center Vaclav Nedorost in the first period of Wednesday's 1-1 tie with the Colorado Avalanche.

The 27-year-old Arnott was acquired from the New Jersey Devils last March and had three goals and an assist in seven games. He had four goals and an assist in five preseason games.

A first-round pick of the Edmonton Oilers in 1993, Arnott has 200 goals and 264 assists in 599 career games.

To take Arnott's roster spot, the Stars recalled right wing Jon Sim from Utah of the American Hockey League. The 25-year-old Sim scored four goals in the preseason with Dallas.

I hope it's really that quick. Turgeon hurt his ankle last year and was out a lot longer than that - and even when he came back it took him a long time to find his scoring touch. Course, that may not have had anything to do with his ankle :o .
