The Dallas Stars blue line was already missing a few of important pieces, and now it looks like they will be with no a different 1.
Best defenseman John Klingberg was injured in the 2nd period of time of Tuesday’s four-1 win more than the Colorado Avalanche and failed to end the recreation. After the Stars’ victory, head mentor Jim Montgomery instructed reporters that the 27-yr-old blueliner is probably to pass up at the very least two weeks, as for every The Athletic’s Sean Shapiro.
About 9 minutes into the next period, Klingberg bought hit up superior with a Nikita Zadorov slapshot and fell to the ice, going down somewhat awkwardly.
Montgomery verified afterwards to reporters that his fall pursuing a shot up high was the result of his personal injury, per Dallas Morning News’ Matthew DeFranks.
This isn’t going to bode perfectly for Dallas, a team already going with no the companies of Andrej Sekera, Roman Polak and now, Klingberg. Even so, Sekera is reportedly nearing a return, and this is not the initial time that the Stars have fallen sufferer to many accidents on protection more than time.
The Stars are at this time down four defensemen: Klingberg, Sekera, Polak and Johns.
Most I can recall past time was 5: Klingberg, Carrick, Polak, Methot and Johns. That resulted in these pairs against Nashville on Nov. 10:
