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.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
