Roope Hintz has been recalled to the Dallas Stars this morning. The speedy forward was sent down for the All-Star Break and recalled today as Tyler Pitlick was placed on IR.

Before the AHL All-Star Break, defenseman Connor Carrick was also recalled from his conditioning loan.

Here's the Hintz release:
Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has recalled center Roope Hintz from the Texas Stars, Dallas' top development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

Hintz, 22, has skated in 21 AHL contests with Texas this season and has recorded 22 points (9-13=22). He shares sixth on the club in goals (9) and eighth in power play goals (2). The forward has recorded five points (2-3=5) in 25 NHL contests with Dallas in 2018-19.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound native of Tampere, Finland was originally selected by Dallas in the second round (49th overall) of the 2015 NHL Draft.

In a related move, the Dallas Stars have placed right wing Tyler Pitlick on Injured Reserve (upper body) retroactive to Jan. 17.
