Center sidelined by hip injury
The move is retroactive to Jan. 2, when the 33-year-old Modano was injured in a 6-0 loss to Phoenix. Modano has missed the last three games and is to be re-evaluated next week.
Modano has eight goals and 17 assists through 40 games.
Modano was named Thursday as the starting center for the Western Conference All-Stars for the second straight year. The game is Feb. 8 in Minnesota.
The Stars' next game is at home Saturday against the Colorado Avalanche.
