by Mark Stepneski / Dallas Stars

Dallas Stars forward Lane MacDermid will be out at least another week with what coach Glen Gulutzan called a chest issue. MacDermid was injured while trying to throw a hit in Friday’s game at Anaheim.

“He’s going to be out for a little while here. He has a little bit of a, I don’t even know how to define it, a little bit of a chest issue,” said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan. “It’s not serious, but it’s going to keep him out for probably a good week. So we’ll have him looked at again in a week and see where it goes.”

Asked if it was structural or a lung, Gulutzan explained some more.

“It’s just like a little bruise that he has to let heal. I’m not exactly sure where it is,” Gulutzan said. “It’s an upper body. But at the end of the day, he’s coughed up a little bit of blood. He just has to let it heal. And it’s nothing serious. I know that and it’s something that’s lingering. A little bit before, he had the same problem. So he’s got to sit out at least here seven days and see where he is. So it’s just a matter of time in letting it heal. There’s no rehab or anything like that for it.”
