Stars coach Jim Montgomery expects Klingberg (hand) to return around Christmas, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports. The puck-moving blueliner has already missed the last 11 games with his injury, and this latest prognosis doesn't necessarily mean that he's ahead of schedule, but there haven't been any apparent setbacks since Klingberg underwent surgery in early November. It will definitely be worth holding onto the Swede since he's averaged 0.71 points per game between five NHL seasons.
Klingberg (hand) will be out of action for at least another five weeks, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports. Klingberg figures to be out of commission for a minimum of 17 games based on the timeline outlined by coach Jim Montgomery. The defenseman was bogged down in an eight-game goal drought prior to getting hurt, although he did manage to register five helpers during that stretch. Nearly half of the 26-year-old's points (six of 13) have been scored on the man advantage, where he is averaging 2:59 of ice time.
Klingberg underwent hand surgery Friday and will be sidelined for at least four weeks, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports. Things are only getting worse for Klingberg's owners at this point, as prior to this news the Stars had only revealed that the blueliner would miss at least three weeks due to an upper-body injury, but it now appears as though he'll be sidelined for a month at a minimum. Miro Heiskanen and Esa Lindell will be tasked with picking up the slack offensively during Klingberg's lengthy absence.
Klingberg (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports. The Stars have already established that Klingberg will miss three weeks with an upper-body injury that he sustained in Thursday night's contest against the Sharks. This is a huge blow for fantasy owners, as Klingberg is up to 13 points through 16 games and qualifies as an elite defenseman.
Klingberg will be sidelined for at least three weeks due to an upper-body injury, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports. Klingberg suffered the injury while blocking a shot during the third period of Thursday's 4-3 win over San Jose. This is a huge loss for fantasy owners, as Klingberg has been one of the best options at his position this season, racking up five goals and 13 points while averaging a whopping 25:20 of ice time through the first 15 games. Miro Heiskanen and Esa Lindell will likely both take on larger roles during Klingberg's lengthy absence.
