Stars' Chiasson leaves with injury
Stars rookie Alex Chiasson left Monday’s game against the Blackhawks in the second period with an upper-body injury and is questionable to return.

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.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
