Dallas Stars veteran John Klingberg hit by puck, out at least two weeks

Dallas Stars defenseman John Klingberg will miss at least two weeks after being injured while being hit by a puck during Tuesday's game against the Colorado Avalanche, according to coach Jim Montgomery.

Klingberg, 27, did not play in the third period of the Stars' 4-1 win. Montgomery said the sixth-year veteran suffered a lower-body injury on the same play in which a puck struck him in the face. Klingberg stayed in the game at first but was ultimately ruled out for the final period.
