Stars centre Roope Hintz out for Game 6 with upper-body injury; Avs without centre Yakov Trenin

By The Associated Press on May 17, 2024.

DENVER (AP) – The Dallas Stars will be without centre Roope Hintz for a second straight game because of an upper-body injury.

Hintz will miss Game 6 of their second-round series with the Colorado Avalanche on Friday night. The Stars can advance to the Western Conference Final for the second year in a row with a win.

The 27-year-old Hintz left Monday’s 5-1 victory at Colorado after blocking a shot in the first period. Earlier in the game, he went down hard when he was cross-checked by Nathan MacKinnon. Hintz has two goals and four assists in 11 games this post-season.

Colorado will be without centre Yakov Trenin, who plays a big role on the penalty kill, because of an upper-body injury he suffered in a 5-3 win at Dallas on Wednesday.

Trenin’s classified as day-to-day, coach Jared Bednar said Friday after morning practice.
