The Dallas and Texas Stars shuffled things a bit today with the health of Kari Lehtonen improving and Aaron Rome ready for NHL action. First, Dallas recalled Rome from his conditioning stint in Texas, where he played three games tallying no points and a minus-1 rating.

Fresh off their respective first starts in the NHL and AHL, Dallas assigned Jack Campbell to Texas, and Texas assigned Josh Robinson to ECHL Idaho.

Here's the release:
The Texas Stars, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Dallas Stars, announced today that Dallas has recalled defenseman Aaron Rome from his conditioning assignment with Texas, has returned goaltender Jack Campbell to the AHL and has activated goaltender Kari Lehtonen from injured reserve. The Texas Stars also announced that goaltender Josh Robinson has been returned on loan to the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL.

Rome recorded three shots and six penalty minutes in three games with Texas during his conditioning assignment.

Campbell made his NHL debut on Sunday night against the Anaheim Ducks. The 21-year-old netminder stopped 41-of-47 shots Sunday.

Lehtonen has missed the last five games after being placed on injured reserve retroactive to Oct. 11 when he suffered a lower body injury. In three games this season, he has posted a 2-1-0 record and is tied for second in the League with a .953 save percentage and fourth with a 1.57 goals against average.

Robinson made his AHL debut on Saturday night against the San Antonio Rampage, stopping all 26 shots he faced to record his first career AHL win and shutout as Texas won 6-0. The Frankenmuth, Michigan native currently leads the AHL with a perfect goals-against average (0.00) and save percentage (1.000).

  1. Not sure I like Robinson getting reassigned but it's a good problem to have.

  2. On an unrelated note, I'm not 100% familiar with the rules of calling up/sending down players. If Morin gets called up to the big club, does he have to clear waivers to come back down?

    1. Because Morin already passed through waivers, he's good.
