DALLAS - The Dallas Stars have activated Aaron Rome from injured reserve after the defenceman missed 13 games with a broken foot.
Rome will be available Monday night against Minnesota, the first of two home games for the Stars against the Wild this week. He had two assists and eight penalty minutes in 11 games before getting injured Feb. 23 against San Jose.
The Stars signed Rome as a free agent in the off-season after he spent the previous three seasons in Vancouver. He has 24 points and 164 penalty minutes in 185 career games.
Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
