The best hockey player in USA history should have at least five more games before he has to decide on whether to return next season or not. According to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News, Mike Modano will skate on Wednesday, practice on Thursday and then plans on playing on Friday at home against the Edmonton Oilers. He has been out since March 14 after undergoing an emergency appendectomy.

Modano had originally hoped to join the team on the current road trip, but doctors put their foot down and said he could have no contact until at least Tuesday.

Modano has just 13 goals and 26 points this season in 54 games, but enjoyed a very successful run in January with nine points in ten games. Seeing Modano playing anywhere near the same level Stars fans have enjoyed for 20 years is always a thrill, but it’s obvious his time is running short in a Stars jersey. He’s scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
