Modano missed six games
Modano missed six games because of a groin injury and didn't travel with the Stars for the start of the five-game road trip, the longest of the season. He rejoined the team Thursday in Colorado.
Despite just 25 points and a career-worst minus-19 rating in his first 40 games, Modano was voted by fans as a Western Conference starter for the NHL All-Star game next month.
