We have a stunning healthy scratch tonight.
According to multiple reports the Dallas Stars have made defenseman John Klingberg a healthy scratch, a move made even more surprising by the fact that the Stars are already down one of their defensemen with Johnnu Oduya out due to injury.
It appears that the reason behind the scratch is Klingberg getting on the bad side of head coach Lindy Ruff. While the reason for that was initially belief to be Klingberg's tardiness for a team meeting today, Stars insider Mark Stepneski is now reporting that Klingberg missed the meeting entirely.
Klingberg for his part appears to be taking it well admitting that he feels embarrassed and vowing not to repeat the mistake, and most importantly of all realizing that he let his teammates down.
