(The Sports Xchange) - The Dallas Stars placed forwards Tyler Seguin (lower body) and Patrick Eaves (concussion) on injured reserve on Saturday.
Both were injured in Friday night’s 2-0 win over the Florida Panthers, along with right winger Ales Hemsky.
Seguin, the NHL’s second-leading scorer, had to be helped off the ice after Florida defenseman Dmitry Kulikov upended him near the Panthers blue line with 6:55 remaining in regulation.
The Stars announced later that Seguin would miss three to six weeks with a knee injury.
Eaves left the ice with assistance 51 seconds later after being struck in the right side of the head by a wrist shot from Stars rookie defenseman John Klingberg.
Kulikov was suspended indefinitely Saturday pending an in-person hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety for the clipping incident against Seguin.
