Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Not much work in relief outing
Wedgewood stopped 10 of 11 shots in relief of Jake Oettinger in Tuesday's 4-0 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 3.
Vegas didn't force the issue much after chasing Oettinger just 7:10 into the game. Wedgewood was solid, but the Stars' offense never got going. This was Wedgewood's third relief appearance of the postseason, and he's allowed four goals on 29 shots.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Appears in relief again
Wedgewood stopped nine of 10 shots in relief of Jake Oettinger in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Kraken in Game 6.
Wedgewood put in a solid effort, though the Kraken were content to slow things down after chasing Oettinger early in the second period. With three goals allowed on 18 shots in two relief outings this postseason, Wedgewood is hardly a threat to take over the starting job. Expect him to be back in the backup role for Monday's Game 7.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Struggles in relief
Wedgewood turned aside six of eight shots in relief in a 7-2 loss to Seattle in Game 3 on Sunday.
Wedgewood stepped into the contest for the start of the third period after Jake Oettinger surrendered five goals on 17 shots. However, Wedgewood couldn't stop Seattle's momentum and ended up conceding both a shorthanded and a power-play goal. Despite Oettinger's inconsistency in the second round, he's a major part of why Dallas has gotten this far and will likely be the starting goaltender in Game 4 on Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Back at morning skate
Wedgewood (illness) was on the ice for Monday's morning skate, Saad Yousuf of The Athletic reports.
As expected, Wedgewood should be available to dress in Game 1 against Minnesota on Monday after missing practice Sunday because of an illness. He is slated to be Jake Oettinger's backup in Dallas' playoff opener Monday.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Misses practice
Wedgewood (illness) was not available for Sunday's practice, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.
Despite missing practice, the 30-year-old is expected to be available Monday against Minnesota and will likely serve as Jake Oettinger's backup. Wedgewood went 9-8-3 with a 2.72 GA and .915 save percentage during the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Stops 16 in win
Wedgewood made 16 saves in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Blues.
Wedgewood gave up two goals in the first period, then settled down as the Stars limited the chances against him. The 30-year-old netminder shouldn't expect to see the ice much the rest of the way. Jake Oettinger will likely start Thursday's season finale with seeding still at stake, and the Stars plan to ride Oettinger throughout the playoffs. Unless Wedgewood makes an appearance Thursday, he'll finish the season 9-8-3 with a 2.72 GAA and .915 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Gets starting nod Wednesday
Wedgewood will tend the twine on the road against the Blues on Wednesday, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.
Wedgewood has played in just two games in the Stars' last 23 contests, making just one start in which he made 26 saves in a winning effort. With the club ending the season with a back-to-back, Wedgewood will take the first game, which means Jake Oettinger figures to start the season finale versus St. Louis on Thursday. In the postseason, Wedgewood is unlikely to see much, if any, minutes while Oettinger takes the bulk of the workload.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Sees work in relief Monday
Wedgewood stopped all seven shots he faced after replacing Jake Oettinger to begin the third period of Monday's 6-1 win over the Red Wings.
There's no injury concern with Oettinger -- the Stars simply had a commanding lead and elected to give their No. 1 netminder a bit of extra rest ahead of the playoffs. Wedgewood has a 2.76 GAA and .916 save percentage on the season, and while the 30-year-old has seen action in only two games so far in April, he could get one more start as Dallas closes out its schedule with a home-and-home series against St. Louis on Wednesday and Thursday....

Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Wins in return
Wedgewood stopped 26 of 27 shots in Monday's 5-1 win over the Predators.
Wedgewood had been out for about six weeks due to a lower-body injury. He helped AHL Texas clinch a playoff spot over the weekend and did the same for the big club with Monday's impressive win, which saw him keep the Predators off the board deep into the third period. Wedgewood is up to 8-8-3 with a 2.81 GAA and a .915 save percentage through 19 games. He's been a capable backup this season, but he's unlikely to see much more than one or two games the rest of the way, as Jake Oettinger will continue to start the majority of the time....

Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Leaves ice first
Wedgewood was the first goalie to exit the ice Monday, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Hockey Now reports, indicating he'll be between the home pipes against Nashville.
Wedgewood -- who was recently with AHL Texas on a conditioning assignment -- will be making his first NHL start since Feb. 18 versus Columbus. In his last five appearances for Dallas, the veteran netminder's only win was a 34-save shutout against the Kings, a span where he posted an overall 1-4-0 record and .920 save percentage. The Stars have just one back-to-back remaining on the schedule, which may be the last we see of Wedgewood this season, with Jake Oettinger the No. 1 the rest of the way.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Back from conditioning loan
Wedgewood (lower body) was recalled from his conditioning loan with AHL Texas on Sunday.
Wedgewood stopped 24 of 26 shots in a 2-1 overtime loss against San Jose on March 31 during his brief time in the minors. Dallas loaned Matt Murray to AHL Texas in a corresponding move, so it appears as though Wedgewood will be available to return to the lineup Monday against Nashville.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Scott Wedgewood: On conditioning stint
Wedgewood (lower body) was sent to AHL Texas on a conditioning stint Thursday, Brian Rea of Bally Sports Southwest reports.
Wedgewood will get in some much needed playing time, as he has missed the last 17 games with the injury. He is 7-8-3 with a 2.91 GAA and .913 save percentage. Wedgewood will be recalled next week.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Still not ready to play
Wedgewood (lower body) will not dress against the Blackhawks on Tuesday, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.
Wedgewood will be out of action for his 17th consecutive contest due to his lower-body injury. Even once given the all-clear, the 30-year-old backstop figures to be relegated to the No. 2 role, though it's possible Wedgewood could see a few extra starts down the stretch to give Jake Oettinger a break before the postseason....

Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Traveling with team
Wedgewood (lower body) will join the Stars for their road clash with Chicago on Tuesday, Brian Rea of Bally Sports Southwest reports.
Wedgewood hasn't played in an NHL game since Feb. 18 against Columbus, a stretch of 16 contests on the shelf. Even when healthy, the veteran netminder has played in a mere 18 games this year, posting a 7-8-3 record with a 2.91 GAA and one shutout. Even if Wedgewood suits up versus the Blackhawks, it will likely be in a backup role behind Jake Oettinger.... See More ... See Less

Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Not ready to return Thursday
Wedgewood (lower body) isn't available for Thursday's game against Edmonton, per the NHL media site.
Wedgewood was last in net Feb. 18. He has a 7-8-3 record, 2.91 GAA and .913 save percentage in 18 contests this season. With Wedgewood still out, Matt Murray will serve as Jake Oettinger's understudy versus the Oilers.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Skates, but not ready to play
Wedgewood (lower body) skated Tuesday in Vancouver, but he won't suit up versus the Canucks, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.
Wedgewood is getting closer to a return since he's gotten back on the ice. It's unclear if he'll be ready for Thursday's game in Edmonton or Saturday's game versus the Flames, but he'd likely only serve as the backup for either of those contests with Jake Oettinger holding down a starting role....

Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Still out against Kraken
Wedgewood (lower body) will not be in the lineup versus Seattle on Monday, per NHL.com.
Wedgewood went 1-4-0 with a 2.65 GAA in his previous five outings and likely wouldn't have seen too many starts even if fit. In the meantime, Matt Murray will serve as the backup to Jake Oettinger. Once healthy, Wedgewood should reclaim his place as the No. 2 option. With a back-to-back on the schedule, it seems unlikely Wedgewood will return in time for Tuesday's clash with Vancouver either.... See More ... See Less
