Goalie - DAL
RECORD: 2-1-0
GAA: 1.57 | SVP: 0.953
Lehtonen sustained a lower-body injury in that night's game against the Winnipeg Jets and was replaced by Dan Ellis at 14:30 of the second period.

The Stars also activated defenseman Aaron Rome from injured reserve and assigned him to the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League on a conditioning assignment. In addition, forward Chris Mueller was assigned to Texas.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
