Which NHL players are in trouble right now?
Business Insider/Andy Katz has the story.1.
Dallas Stars: Dallas Stars goalie Brenden Dillon (knee) and defenseman Jason Demers (ankle) both suffered concussions in Sunday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings.
Dillon left the game early with the injury and will be evaluated again.
Demers is still listed as day-to-day.
The Stars are expected to be cautious with Dillon in the lineup, but if he’s able to play in two games, that could change things.
Dillon has a goal and three assists in 10 games this season.
The Stars have allowed 30 goals and 41 shots against this season and are in last place in the Western Conference.
The Dallas Stars are 4-8-1 in their last 10 games, which is tied for the third-worst record in the NHL, behind the New York Islanders (5-8) and Tampa Bay Lightning (4-9).2.
