Stars’ forward Patrick Eaves left Thursday’s game midway through the second period after blocking a shot from Kings’ defenseman Alec Martinez.
Eaves appeared to take the shot off one of his skates and did not return.
Eaves had a shot on goal and a hit in the game during 6:48 in time on ice before leaving.
Prior to the start of the third period, the Stars announced Eaves would not return.
According to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News, the Stars will update Eaves injury on Friday.
The 30-year-old has two goals and five points in 12 games this season while averaging just over 10 minutes of ice time a night.
