The puck appeared to carom off the head of Rooney, who stayed down for quite some time behind the Avalanche net. A stretcher was brought out, but Rooney slowly got up and was assisted off the ice.
Rooney was hit just 3 minutes into the game and with the Stars leading 1-0. There was no immediate update on his injury.
With Rooney gone, the lone referee was Justin St. Pierre, along with two linesmen.
