Stars' Gonchar out with concussion-like symptoms
Dallas Stars defenseman Sergei Gonchar will miss the next seven-to-10 days with concussion-like symptoms, general manager Jim Nill told Stars beat reporters Sunday.

Dallas Stars defenseman Sergei Gonchar will miss the next seven-to-10 days with concussion-like symptoms, general manager Jim Nill told Stars beat reporters Sunday.

Nill is hoping Gonchar will be back after the Christmas break and said there won't be a call-up from the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League.

Gonchar left the Stars' game Saturday against the San Jose Sharks in the second period with what was initially called an upper-body injury.

"He's all right," Stars coach Lindy Ruff told the Dallas Morning News after the game. "He took a puck to the face and isn't feeling well, so he has to stay out for a while probably."

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
