Ray Whitney played the first eight games of the season after signing with the Stars as a free agent last summer. He then suffered a broken bone in his foot and missed the next 16.

He returned Tuesday and said he was looking forward to working his way into the fabric of the organization.

“I was only here for eight games, so it’ll be a little bit new to me still in the locker room and getting used to some of the players, their tendencies and that sort of thing,” Whitney said. “But the last couple weeks when I’ve been around the team a little more, I feel a little more comfortable with the guys and hopefully that will lead to comfortableness on the ice.
