Brunnstrom and Lundqvist on Retroactive IR

by Kristine

Fabian Brunnstrom (officially lower body, probably left ankle or foot) and Joel Lundqvist (fractured scalpula) were placed on Injured Reserve today, both retroactive to the dates of their respective injuries. That means Lundqvist is eligbile to come back as soon as he is ready, and Brunnstrom is eligible to return January 3. However, when asked today at practice, Brunnstrom told a fan that he’s looking at another two weeks out of the line-up. That would put his return date around January 13. The official press release is here.

This is somewhat discouraging news. It’s hard to see our poor Stars still fighting injuries when we had a mostly full, relatively healthy roster just last week.

  1. I’m so sad for both of them but especially for Fabian. His game was really coming together. I hate seeing him have a setback.
