The 6-foot-1, 190-pound forward from Brooklyn Park, Minnesota has skated in three games for Dallas this season, posting two shots and a plus-1 rating for the NHL club. Originally drafted by Washington in the ninth round (263rd overall) of the 2004 NHL Draft, Morin was signed by Dallas as a free agent on July 12, 2010.

Rome, 30, is in his second season with Dallas, posting five assists and 18 penalty minutes in 27 career games with the Stars. The 6-foot-1, 220-pound defenseman from Nesbitt, Man., was Los Angeles' fourth-round selection (104th overall) in the 2002 NHL Draft and was signed by Dallas as a free agent on July 1, 2012. Rome has appeared in eight AHL games for Texas this season, recording one assist, eight penalty minutes and a +1 rating.
