SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -All-Star defenseman Philippe Boucher sat out the Dallas Stars' game at San Jose on Thursday night with an undisclosed lower-body injury.
Boucher, the Stars' leading scorer with 14 goals and 22 assists, scored the tying goal with 2.2 seconds left in Dallas' game against the Sharks on Tuesday night. He ranks second among NHL defensemen in goals while also leading the Stars in shots (137) and power-play goals (8).
Boucher, the only defenseman currently leading a team in points, started in front of the Stars' home fans last week in his first All-Star game appearance. The Stars have been in San Jose since Sunday for back-to-back games, but a club spokesman didn't say when the injury occurred.
Jon Klemm returned to Dallas' lineup in Boucher's place after sitting out the club's first three games since the break.
