Nemeth (laceration) out for season; Stars’ blue line gets even thinner

5 Comments

From Mark Stepneski of Stars Inside Edge:

Nemeth, a rookie defenseman, suffered the injury Saturday versus Philadelphia:

The loss of the 22-year-old is a blow to the Stars, whose blue line was already under the microscope. Nemeth was on the bottom pairing, but his minutes will still have to replaced. And as of Saturday, injured Sergei Gonchar (ankle) still wasn’t skating.

The Stars have recalled Jyrki Jokipakka from AHL Texas to take Nemeth’s spot on the roster.
