Modano traveled with the team Monday for a three-game road trip, though he considers himself "doubtful" for Tuesday night's game at Edmonton. The Stars next play Calgary on Friday night.
Modano left the ice briefly in overtime of the Stars' shootout loss to Nashville on Saturday night, the opener of his 20th NHL season. He did take part in the shootout, missing Dallas' fourth shot.
The Stars are hopeful that forward Jere Lehtinen, who has been slowed by hip and groin problems, will make his season debut this week. Lehtinen practiced Monday.
