DALLAS -- Dallas Stars forward Adam Burish returned Thursday night against the Colorado Avalanche after missing 11 games because of a stress fracture in his leg.

Burish was injured blocking a shot March 11 against Minnesota.

Dallas was 3-5-3 during Burish's absence.

Defenseman Nicklas Grossman (leg) and forward Brian Sutherby (back) are still out for Dallas, which has two games left after Thursday night.
