Klingberg (hand) will miss at least five weeks.

Klingberg underwent surgery on his hand last Friday and will miss at least five weeks. Klingberg’s original timetable was “one month,” but head coach Jim Montgomery said he would “take that deal” if Klingberg was out for six weeks. This puts Klingberg on-pace to return in late-December/early-January which will give Miro Heiskanen an extended run on the Stars top-pairing and top power-play unit.

Klingberg will miss at least three weeks with an upper-body injury.

Klingberg was forced to leave Thursday’s game with an upper-body injury that he suffered while blocking a shot. The Stars immediately announced that he will miss at least three weeks, which is a huge blow. Miro Heiskanen gets a massive bump in fantasy value as he takes over as their primary power-play defenseman.

Klingberg (lower-body) will miss his second straight game on Tuesday.

Klingberg remains day-to-day and will not play tonight in Montreal. There is no word on exactly how serious the injury is, but monitor his status leading up to the Stars’ back-to-back on Friday and Saturday. With Klingberg out, Kris Russell will play on the top pair and top power-play.

Klingberg (lower-body) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Philadelphia.

Klingberg left Saturday’s game with a lower-body injury, but the Stars are hopeful that he will be available for Tuesday’s game against the Flyers. Klingberg has an assist in four straight games and seven helpers in his last 10 games—however he is a minus-7 over that span as well.

Klingberg will skate on the Stars’ top-pair and top power-play unit.

After acquiring Jason Demers from the Sharks, the Stars have moved Klingberg up to the top-pair with Alex Goligoski. He will also man the point on the top PP unit. His NHL career has been off to a hot start, posting one goal and four assists in his first six games. He makes for a great add in standard leagues.

Klingberg scored his first NHL goal on Thursday.

Klingberg now has one goal and three assists in the first six games of his NHL career. He is playing nearly 24 minutes a night, including an average 1:37 on the power-play. He is a dynamic offensive defenseman, which allowed the Stars to trade Sergei Gonchar. He is worth a speculative add in standard leagues.
