Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has recalled defenseman John Klingberg from the Texas Stars, Dallas' top development affiliate in the American Hockey League.
Klingberg, 22, is currently second amongst both AHL defensemen and rookies with 12 points (4-8=12) in 10 games played for Texas. His four goals on the season are tied for second on the team and his +5 plus/minus rating is second. He has posted at least one point in six of his last seven games posting 11 points during that span (3-8=11).
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound native of Gothenburg, Sweden was selected by Dallas in the fifth round (131st overall) of the 2010 NHL Draft.
The Dallas Stars also placed right wing Valeri Nichushkin on Injured Reserve.
