Dallas Stars forward Roope Hintz returned for Game 3 of the Western Conference Final against the Edmonton Oilers.

Hintz featured in the starting lineup alongside Jason Robertson and Tyler Seguin.

He missed the previous four contests due to an upper-body injury sustained in a May 13 meeting with the Colorado Avalanche.

The 27-year-old had two goals and six points in 11 postseason contests entering Monday. He tallied 30 goals and 65 points in 80 regular-season games to rank second on the Stars in goals and fourth in scoring.

After dropping Game 1 in double overtime, Dallas evened the series Saturday with a 3-1 win.
