Patrick Eaves struck in the head with slapshot from teammate

The Stars suffered another scary injury on Friday.

Friday was not a good night for Dallas despite a win over the Florida Panthers. Just minutes after losing Tyler Seguin for the game with a devasting injury, the Stars lost winger Patrick Eaves in a freak accident.

Eaves was manning the front of the net on the power play when a shot from teammate John Klingberg struck him in the head.


Eaves remained on the ice for a few moments, and needed help from teammates getting up and skating slowly to the locker room and missing the rest of the game. It was another scary scene for a suddenly depleted Stars team.
