Dallas Stars centre Tyler Seguin and goaltender Ben Bishop are “unfit to play” in the team’s round robin finale against the St. Louis Blues Sunday.

No further information on either players’ injuries was immediately known but Seguin was also “unfit to play” in the team’s exhibition game against the Nashville Predators on July 30.

Anton Khudobin will start in place of Bishop while Jake Allen will start in net for the Blues, replacing Jordan Binnington.

Defenceman John Klingberg, who missed Wednesday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche with an undisclosed injury, is back in the lineup against the Blues.

The winner of Sunday’s game will face the Calgary Flames while the loser will face the Vancouver Canucks in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
