DALLAS (AP) - Dallas Stars forward Ales Hemsky will miss five to six months after surgery for a hip injury that general manager Jim Nill said was sustained during the World Cup of Hockey.

Nill said the surgery was performed Monday. Hemsky, who was on injured reserve early in the season with what was called a groin injury, played one game this season against Columbus, recording one shot in 16 minutes. He played for the Czech Republic in the World Cup.

The Stars, who had the best record in the Western Conference last season, have dealt with a series of injuries so far this season.

Forward Patrick Sharp has been on injured reserve since Oct. 21 with concussion-like symptoms, and Cody Eakin has missed the regular season with a knee injury. Jamie Benn has just one goal in five games while dealing with an unspecified ailment.
