Lehtonen activated from injured reserve by Stars
The Dallas Stars on Monday activated goalie Kari Lehtonen from injured reserve

The Dallas Stars on Monday activated goaltender Kari Lehtonen from injured reserve and assigned goalie Jack Campbell to the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League.

In addition, defenseman Aaron Rome was recalled from Texas.

Lehtonen had been out since sustaining a lower-body injury in an Oct. 11 game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Dan Ellis started the next four games in his absence before Campbell made his NHL debut Sunday in a 6-3 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Rome played in 27 games for the Stars last season and has 201 games of NHL experience in parts of seven seasons with the Ducks, Columbus Blue Jackets and Vancouver Canucks.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
