DALLAS (AP) -Dallas defenseman Sergei Zubov was placed on injured reserve Thursday because of a groin injury and starting goalie Marty Turco will miss the game against Minnesota with a sore neck.

The Stars recalled goaltender Tobias Stephan from their minor-league Iowa Stars club.

The 37-year-old Zubov has missed seven games with the injury. Mike Smith will start at Minnesota on Thursday night.

The 24-year-old Stephan made his NHL debut Oct. 13 at Chicago and blocked 38 of 40 shots in a 2-1 overtime loss. In 39 AHL games, he went 17-16-2 with a 2.60 goals-against average, a .907 save percentage and two shutouts.
