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.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
