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 groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
