High-scoring forward Alexander Radulov won’t return this season for the Dallas Stars. And goaltender Ben Bishop won’t play at all. General manager Jim Nill says Radulov needs surgery to repair a core muscle injury after playing only 11 games this season. Bishop hasn’t played while rehabbing from twice having knee surgery last year. Nill says the goalie won’t try to play this season. Both players are expected to be healthy for next season. Dallas also signed defenseman Joel Hanley to a two-year contract extension.
