DALLAS - The Dallas Stars have activated forward Jamie Benn from injured reserve in time for him to participate in the all-star game.
Benn missed five games while recovering from an emergency appendectomy. He's expected to play in Sunday's all-star game in Ottawa and be back in the lineup when the Stars return from the break Tuesday at Anaheim.
The 22-year-old Benn has 13 goals and 29 assists.
The Stars also sent Tomas Vincour, Philip Larsen and Matt Fraser to the Texas Stars of the AHL.
