Stars' John Klingberg: Tacks on power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg had a power-play assist and two PIM in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Predators.

Klingberg already has four power-play assists through two contests, serving nicely as the provider on the top unit. The Swede has added three shots on goal, three hits and two blocked shots. Klingberg's locked in early on -- that's great for fantasy managers in need of offense from the blue line.

Stars' John Klingberg: Distributes three assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg recorded three power-play assists in Friday's 7-0 win over the Predators.

Klingberg missed practice Thursday for "medical reasons," but he was good to go for Friday's season opener. In fact, he was fantastic in the contest, helping out on goals by Denis Gurianov, Joe Pavelski and Joel Kiviranta. The 28-year-old Klingberg has long worked on the Stars' power play -- 17 of his 32 points last year came with the man advantage, and that was considered a low output by his standards. If Friday is anything to go off, Klingberg could challenge the 40-point mark in 2020-21 while seeing significant usage on the top pairing.

Stars' John Klingberg: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg (undisclosed) will be in the lineup for Friday's season opener versus Nashville, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.

Klingberg missed Thursday's practice with an undisclosed issue, but he'll slot into his usual spots on the Stars' top pairing and first power-play unit for Friday's contest. The 28-year-old Swede racked up six goals and 32 points in 58 games last campaign.

Stars' John Klingberg: Misses practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg (undisclosed) didn't practice Thursday due to "medical reasons," Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.

At this point it isn't clear if Klingberg will be available for Dallas' first game of the season versus Nashville on Friday. Another update on the 28-year-old Swede's status should surface prior to puck drop against the Predators.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg recorded an assist, five hits and four blocked shots in Saturday's 3-2 double-overtime win over the Lightning in Game 5.

Klingberg's shot attempt in the second overtime generated a rebound that Corey Perry stashed home for the game-winning goal. The 28-year-old Klingberg has continued to play well in the Stanley Cup Finals with a goal and four assists in five games. He's produced four markers, 17 helpers, 45 shots on goal, 56 hits and 28 blocks in 25 contests overall.

Stars' John Klingberg: Helps drive offense in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg dished out a pair of assists in a 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay in Game 2 on Monday. He also had three blocks, two PIM and one shot.

Klingberg drew the primary assist on both Dallas goals. His power-play point shot was deflected by Joe Pavelski late in the second period to get the Stars on the board, and he made a perfect backdoor feed to Mattias Janmark for a tap-in early in the third. Klingberg has six helpers during a four-game point streak and has upped his playoff point total to 19 in 22 contests.

Stars' John Klingberg: Clutch pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg notched two power-play assists in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over the Golden Knights in Game 5.

Stars' John Klingberg: Produces power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg's shot attempt generated a rebound that Jamie Benn buried to give the Stars a lead in the final minute of the second period. Through 19 games, Klingberg has three goals, 11 helpers, 37 shots on net and 43 hits. Four of his assists have come on the power play.

Stars' John Klingberg: Pots lone goal in Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg scored a goal in Sunday's 1-0 win over the Golden Knights in Game 1.

Klingberg tallied just 2:36 into the first period. That made it seem like it could be a high-scoring battle, but goalies Anton Khudobin (25-save shutout) and Marc-Andre Fleury (24 for 25 in saves) held true from that point on. Klingberg is up to three goals, 10 helpers, 35 shots on net and 35 hits through 16 games. Three of his assists have come with a man advantage.

Stars' John Klingberg: Assists on pair of goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg registered two assists with one block and one hit in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over Colorado in Game 7.

Klingberg assisted on a second-period goal by Joel Kiviranta and a third-period power-play tally by Alexander Radulov. It was a nice performance for the 28-year-old, who had been a minus-5 in the previous two games, both Dallas losses. Klingberg has two goals and 10 assists in 15 playoff games.

Stars' John Klingberg: Notches helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg managed an assist and five hits in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Avalanche in Game 1.

Klingberg assisted on Roope Hintz's third-period goal. The five hits also represented Klingberg's most in nine playoff outings so far. The blueliner had just 29 hits in 58 regular-season games, as physicality is not a major aspect of his play. The Swede has racked up a goal, seven helpers, 25 shots on goal and a plus-3 rating during the postseason.

Stars' John Klingberg: Fires home winner in Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg scored the game-winning goal Tuesday during the Stars' 2-1 victory over the Flames in Game 5.

While Klingberg's snap shot from the point early in the third period had plenty of mustard on it, Cam Talbot got a clean look at it and probably should have made the save. Nonetheless, the Dallas blueliner came away with his first goal of the postseason and handed his team a 3-2 series lead. Klingberg now has seven points in seven games, and he'll look to stay productive Thursday as the Stars try to advance to the next round in Game 6.

Stars' John Klingberg: Sparks OT win in Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg notched three assists Sunday, one on the power play, in the Stars' 5-4 overtime win over the Flames during Game 4.

After collecting an helper with the man advantage in the first period, Klingberg was a key figure in the comeback victory. The tying goal, scored with 12.9 seconds left in regulation, came off the rebound of a Klingberg shot, while the OT winner was deflected home by Alexander Radulov on a rocket from the point by Klingberg. The blueliner had a disappointing regular season, but he now has six points (all assists) through six postseason contests.

Stars' John Klingberg: Dishes pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg had two assists in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Flames in Game 2.

Klingberg had a hand in Alexander Radulov's first-period tally and Miro Heiskanen's marker in the second. It wasn't an easy game for Klingberg, who was on the receiving end of a handful of hits from the Flames, but he came through it no worse for wear. The Swede has three assists and eight shots in four postseason outings.

Stars' John Klingberg: Collects helper in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg (undisclosed) posted an assist, three shots on net and two PIM in Sunday's 2-1 shootout win over the Blues in the round robin.

Klingberg missed Wednesday's round-robin game versus the Avalanche with the injury, but he was good to go and able to set up Joe Pavelski for the Stars' lone tally Sunday. The Swede is one of the Stars' top-four defensemen, although he had career lows in games played (58) and points (32) in the truncated 2019-20 regular season.

Stars' John Klingberg: Practices Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg (undisclosed) was on the ice for Friday's practice session, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Klingberg was back in his spot on the top pairing and appears to be trending in the right direction for a return to action versus the Blues on Sunday. The defenseman is currently bogged down in a four-game pointless streak dating back prior to the league going on hiatus. With Klingberg good to go, Thomas Harley should return to the press box.

Stars' John Klingberg: Not playing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg (undisclosed) has been deemed unfit to play and is not in the lineup Wednesday against Colorado.

Joining Klingberg with the "unfit to play" designation is teammate Ben Bishop, who was expected to start in net. Of course, the stakes aren't as high for the eight top seeds participating in round-robin play, so it's hard to say how serious -- if at all -- Klingberg's concern is. Look for an additional update prior to the Stars' next game Sunday against St. Louis.

Stars' John Klingberg: Tallies another power-play point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg scored a power-play goal and posted three shots on net with one block in a 2-1 overtime loss to the Oilers on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old has a modest four-game point streak with two goals and five points during that stretch. Three of those points have come with the man advantage. Klingberg only has two PP goals but 15 assists on the power play this season. Overall, he has six goals and 32 points with a minus-9 rating in 55 games this season.
