CHICAGODallas Stars rookie forward Alex Chiasson left Monday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center early in the second period with an upper-body injury and the team said his return is questionable.

Chiasson, who plays right wing on the Stars' top line, took a hit from Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson at 1:03 of the middle period. Chiasson scored six goals and added an assist in the first six games of his NHL career since being recalled on April 2 by Dallas from the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League.

Chiasson is the first player in franchise history to score six goals in his first six games with the team; he is the first NHL player to do it since Pittsburgh Penguins star Evgeni Malkin scored seven times in his first six games during the 2006-07 season.
