Klingberg out at least two weeks for Stars with lower-body injury


  • John Klingberg is out at least two weeks for the Dallas Stars with a lower-body injury, coach Jim Montgomery said after a 4-1 win against the Colorado Avalanche at American Airlines Center on Tuesday.
  • The defenseman was hit in the neck area with a shot in the second period before twisting and falling to the ice. He was helped off by a trainer and returned to finish the period but did not come out for the third.
  • Klingberg was scheduled to be examined by team doctors on Wednesday.
  • “We’ll know more after that,” Montgomery said. “It’s never good when one of your top three [defensemen] gets injured.”
  • Dallas is also missing defensemen Andrej Sekera (general soreness), Roman Polak (sternum) and Stephen Johns (post-traumatic headaches).
  • The Stars (8-8-1) have won four in a row and seven of eight after a 1-7-1 start. They visit the Winnipeg Jets at Bell MTS Place on Sunday (2 p.m. ET; TSN3, FS-SW, NHL.TV).
