Dallas Stars forward Roope Hintz has been ruled out of Friday's Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinal series versus the Colorado Avalanche in Denver.

Hintz will miss his second consecutive contest after sustaining an upper-body injury late in the first period of Game 4 on Monday. Dallas went on to record a 5-1 win in that game, however Colorado responded with a 5-3 victory on Wednesday to trim the Stars' lead to 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Dallas coach Peter DeBoer said he is hopeful Hintz can return for either Game 7 of this series or the first game of the conference finals.

Hintz, who is considered day-to-day with the injury, has collected six points (two goals, four assists) in 11 games during the postseason. The 27-year-old had 65 points (30 goals, 35 assists) in 80 games during the regular season.
