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

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
