Dallas Stars defenceman John Klingberg will be out for at least three weeks with an upper-body injury, the team announced after Thursday’s 4-3 win over the San Jose Sharks.

Klingberg left the game in the third period after blocking a shot and didn’t return. Head coach Jim Montgomery said the team will know more about the injury Friday after Klingberg sees a doctor.

The 26-year-old joins a long list of Stars blue liners already sidelined by injuries. Marc Methot has been in and out of the lineup with a lower-body injury, Connor Carrick hasn’t played yet this month with an ankle injury and Stephen Johns has yet to appear in a game this season with a head injury.
