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

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.

— Lightning captain Steven Stamkos after the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Sunday
