DALLAS (AP) The Dallas Stars have placed defenseman Alex Goligoski on the injured list with a broken thumb.
The team announced the move Tuesday, four days after Goligoski was injured in a 3-1 loss at Pittsburgh, his former team. He’ll be sidelined Tuesday night against Florida.
Goligoski is second among Dallas defensemen with six points, including two goals. He leads the team in power-play ice time per game and has logged more than 20 minutes in 36 of 38 games since leaving the Penguins in a February trade.
He also missed Saturday’s game at Detroit.
