Stars' John Klingberg: Joining Team Sweden
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg will play for Team Sweden at the IIHF World Championship, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

Klingberg's NHL campaign ended on a sour note when the Stars were eliminated by the Blues in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals Tuesday, but he'll now get the opportunity to help his native Sweden compete for gold at the World Championship. The 26-year-old blueliner's fantasy value declined a bit in 2018-19 due to the emergence of Miro Heiskanen, but he'll remain a solid secondary option in most formats next season.

Stars' John Klingberg: Plucks apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg picked up an assist while firing two shots on goal in Friday's 2-1 win over the Blues in Game 5.

Klingberg has three points in five contests against the Blues in the second round. The Swedish defender has a pair of goals and nine assists in 11 postseason games this year.

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

Klingberg scored a goal in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Blues in Game 4.

Klingberg has earned two goals and six assists in 10 playoff appearances, while adding 12 blocked shots and 19 shots on goal. Klingberg only has two assists on the power play so far, but he is always a threat to generate offense when he's on the ice.

Stars' John Klingberg: Provides apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg registered an assist and four blocked shots in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Blues in Game 1.

The Swedish blueliner, who sealed the Stars' first-round series win with an overtime goal in Game 6 against the Predators, was right back on the scoresheet to start the new series. The helper gives Klingberg seven assists to go with his one goal in seven playoff games.

Stars' John Klingberg: Seals series with OT tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 2-1 overtime win over the Predators in Game 6.

Klingberg couldn't have picked a better time for his second career postseason goal, beating Predators goalie Pekka Rinne glove side from the left faceoff dot. Klingberg provided plenty of offense in the first round series, with five assists over the previous five games before the series-clinching tally Monday.

Stars' John Klingberg: Monster performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg was a force Wednesday, finishing with three assists in a 5-1 win over Nashville in Game 4.

Two of Klingberg's three assists came while the Stars enjoyed a man advantage, as he finished Wednesday's win having logged a game-high 5:10 of power-play ice time. The trio of helpers gives the Stars' blueliner five assists through four games.

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

Klingberg earned an assist and fired two shots on goal in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Predators in Game 3.

Klingberg has two helpers and seven shots in the series so far, while adding four blocked shots. He had 45 points in 64 regular-season games, a disappointing effort from the Swede a year after recording 67 points, but his playoff performances have been solid despite the Stars trailing 2-1 in the series.

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

Klingberg registered an assist, four shots on goal and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Predators in Game 1.

Klingberg had four assists over his last four regular season games and kept the offense going by setting up Miro Heiskanen's second goal of the game. Klingberg didn't have the best season, with 45 points in 64 regular season games, but he will be a key factor in the Stars' playoff run as their top defenseman.

Stars' John Klingberg: Registers two helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg posted a pair of assists, including one with the man advantage, in a 6-2 victory against the Flyers on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old defenseman only has one goal in the last 14 games, but he has eight assists during that stretch. For most of this season, though, Klingberg has had the opposite problem -- scoring but not posting enough assists. He has 10 goals and 34 assists in 62 games this season. Last year, he posted eight goals with a career-high 59 helpers over 82 contests.

Stars' John Klingberg: Pitches in with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg recorded an assist in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Canucks.

The assist gives Klingberg 42 points in 61 appearances this season, his lowest output since bursting onto the scene with 40 points in his rookie year of 2014-15. A hand injury cost him 18 games in the fall, and he's earned a respectable 29 points in 45 outings since returning.

Stars' John Klingberg: Buries power-play goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg scored a goal in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Panthers.

Klingberg has racked up three goals and five assists in nine games in March, and he's put his name on the scoresheet in four of the last five games. With 39 points in 55 games this season, Klingberg hasn't come close to matching the 67 points from 2017-18, so hopefully owners counting on the scoring of a No. 1 blueliner have been able to supplement that production elsewhere.

Stars' John Klingberg: Nets game-winning goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg scored the lone goal in Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Rangers.

Klingberg's second-period snipe was the only offense apparent in this one. Dallas' top-pairing defender also fired four shots on goal and recorded a blocked shot as well in the winning effort. The 26-year-old has enjoyed a good run of late, picking up five points in his last three games. On the season, Klingberg has nine goals and 35 points in 48 games.

Stars' John Klingberg: Battling illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg missed Monday's practice with an illness but is expected to suit up Tuesday against the Rangers, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

While it appears this illness won't cost Klingberg any game action, it's still best to check in on his status prior to puck drop Tuesday. After all, it's better to be safe than sorry with a guy who's produced 34 points in just 47 appearances from the blue line this season.

Stars' John Klingberg: Explodes with three points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg scored what would be the game-winning goal and added a pair of helpers in a 4-1 win over the Blues on Saturday.

Klingberg and forward Jamie Benn did most of the damage to Blues goalie Jordan Binnington in this contest, with Benn providing a hat trick to lead the way. Klingberg's three-point performance gives him 34 points in 47 appearances. He's been on the rise, only going without a point in two of his last seven games.

Stars' John Klingberg: Pumps five shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg fired off five shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

The five shots were a team-high output, as the Stars spent more time in the defensive end trying to stall the Golden Knights' attack. Klingberg also took an ugly minus-3 rating in the game, pushing him under even for the season. Klingberg has 30 points in 46 games this year, with three assists in his last five contests, but he has taken a step back from the career-high 67 points he recorded last season.

Stars' John Klingberg: Avoids serious injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg (undisclosed) will be in the lineup against Carolina on Saturday after X-rays came back negative, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

Klingberg was forced to leave Thursday's clash with Tampa Bay after blocking a shot, but he appears to have avoided any serious damage. If the blueliner is going to help keep the Stars in playoff contention, he is going to need to produce at a much better rate than his two points over the last eight outings.

Stars' John Klingberg: Injured in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg exited Thursday's 6-0 loss to Tampa Bay in the third period due to an undisclosed injury, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

Klingberg suffered the injury when he blocked a shot midway through the final frame of the blowout loss. The Swedish blueliner has already undergone an X-ray, but coach Jim Montgomery wasn't able to provide reporters with any details following Thursday's contest. More information regarding Klingberg's status for Saturday's matchup with Carolina should surface soon.

Stars' John Klingberg: Marshals power play against Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg notched two assists, both on the power play, in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Jets.

The blueliner is enjoying a marvelous January so far, racking up a goal and 10 points through nine games, with half those points (including the goal) coming with the man advantage. Despite missing 18 games earlier in the season after undergoing surgery on his hand, Klingberg is still on pace for a 50-point campaign.

Stars' John Klingberg: First goal since October
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg scored a power-play goal and added a helper in Tuesday's win over the Blues.

Klingberg had not scored a goal since October, but he took advantage of a 5-on-3 power play and ripped a slap shot through Jake Allen's five hole to break the trend. He also tacked on a primary assist on Tyler Seguin's opening score. Klingberg has started off the new year well with a goal and four assists in four games.

Stars' John Klingberg: Two-assist performance in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klingberg picked up a pair of helpers in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Devils.

One of Klingberg's assists came on the man advantage, giving the 26-year-old eight power-play points in 2018-19. The Swedish blueliner has points in consecutive contests and will hope to make it three straight Friday versus Washington. If he does so, odds are it will be courtesy of another assist, as Klingberg has struggled to score this season. His last goal came back on Oct. 23.
