The Dallas Stars have recalled forward Jason Dickinson to the NHL. It's his second NHL recall. Last year, he scored his first NHL goal in his first NHL game late in the season.

Texas has Mattias Backman on injury with several more days to recover. If he does, Mangene can shift to forward and there won't be much impact to Texas. If not, Ethan Werek will jump into the lineup.

Here's the release:
Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has recalled forward Jason Dickinson from the Texas Stars, Dallas' top development affiliate in the American Hockey League.

Dickinson, 21, has registered 10 points (4-6=10) in 13 games with Texas this season, while he ranks sixth on the team with a +6 plus/minus rating. The forward began the 2016-17 season on injured non-roster list with a hip injury.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound native of Georgetown, Ont. was selected by Dallas in the first round (29th overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft. Dickinson has appeared in one career NHL contest, making his debut and scoring his first career NHL goal (1-0=1) on April 7, 2016 against Colorado.
