The Dallas Stars activated goaltender Kari Lehtonen from injured reserve Wednesday, the Stars announced.
Lehtonen sustained an upper-body injury in the third period of a Nov. 24 game against the Ottawa Senators. He is 9-1-0 in 11 games with a 2.41 goals-against average and .921 save percentage.
Goalie Jack Campbell, who was recalled in Lehtonen's absence, was reassigned to Texas of the American Hockey League.
Campbell did not appear in a game during his recall. Antti Niemi went 2-0-1 in starting the past three games.
