Numminen out indefinitely with dilated aorta



March 20, 2004

Dallas Stars General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today that Stars defenseman Teppo Numminen has been diagnosed with a dilated aorta (one of the large arteries leaving the heart) that will sideline him indefinitely.

"We're disappointed for Teppo that this condition has sidelined him from playing," said Armstrong. "Our primary concern at this time is Teppo's health. Thankfully they caught this problem now and he can work with doctors to correct it and live a long, healthy life. Hopefully he can come back and play hockey soon, but our main focus is helping Teppo fix and recover from this condition."

Numminen, 35, has played in the second-most career NHL games of any player born outside of North America with 1,157 appearances (Jari Kurri ranks first with 1,251 games). Numminen's career NHL scoring of 111 goals and 439 assists for 550 points rank him fifth among European defensemen in all-time points, behind only Borje Salming, Nicklas Lidstrom, Fredrik Olausson, and Sergei Zubov.

The Tampere, Finland, native has appeared in 59 games for the Stars this season, scoring 3-13-16 points. He was acquired from Phoenix in exchange for Mike Sillinger on July 22, 2003.
