The Dallas Stars have recalled goaltender Richard Bachman and sent goalie prospect Jack Campbell back to their AHL affiliate.
Bachman will return to his role as the backup for Kari Lehtonen after appearing in two games and winning both for the Texas Stars. Bachman is 1-3 in four starts for Dallas this season, and he got another win when he replaced an injured Lehtonen in the first period.
Campbell has a 14-10-3 record with a 2.59 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage for the Texas Stars. He hasn't appeared in an NHL game.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Dallas Stars have put backup goalie Cristopher Nilstorp on the injured list and called up Richard Bachman from their minor league affiliate.
The move Sunday came a day after Nilstorp injured a groin in the third period of a 4-3 loss to St. Louis and eventually left the game. Nilstorp has both Dallas losses filling in for starter Kari Lehtonen.
Bachman is 3-1 in four games with...
The shortened NHL season is only in it's early stages, and the Dallas Stars goalie already has a top candidate for save of the year. Kari Lehtonen made a save that not only shocked me when I watched it, it faked out the announcers too. The puck seemed to ricochet off his shoulder and hang in the air for a couple seconds. Lehtonen didn't give up on it and decided to...
The Dallas Stars have placed forward Derek Roy on injured reserve with a groin injury, clearing a roster spot for the expected debut of Jamie Benn on Monday night at Columbus.
Roy, who was acquired from Buffalo in a trade that sent Steve Ott to the Sabres, was hurt Thursday against Chicago. He has two assists in four games.
Benn and the Stars agreed on a five-year, $26.25 million...
The Dallas Stars were in Ohio on Monday night to take on the Columbus Blue Jackets. While the game was light on offense and the Stars came up short on the road, losing to the hometown squad by a score of 2-1, little blame can be laid at the feet of Stars netminder Kari Lehtonen. Among his 25 saves on the night was this stupendous display of goaltending, in which he miraculously makes...
from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
Morrow is playing on the fourth line and has logged less than 10 minutes a game in each of the last two outings. He hasn’t seen that kind of role since he wore No. 45 while breaking in as a rookie back in 1999-2000. It’s not an easy decision for the Stars to make, and it’s not an easy reality for Morrow, who has played 812 games...
IF AT FIRST...
Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson had Stars goalie Keri Lehtonen beaten for a split second. Johnson’s wrister hit Lehtonen in the trapper, tipped up over the goalie’s shoulder was headed for the net when Lehtonen used his go-go gadget reflexes to reach behind himself for a backhanded snatch. It was part pitcher-fielding-a-comebacker part magician, but it’s definitely the...
A reach behind, mid-air grab.
Check out this incredible save from last night’s game between the Dallas Stars and the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Jackets are inches away from scoring the game’s opening goal, but Stars netminder Kari Lehtonen reaches behind his back to rob Columbus defenseman Jack Johnson of a sure tally.

7:00 PM CT
American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas
The Stars get another tough Central Division test tonight as the Blues come into town. St. Louis is one of the most well-rounded teams in the league and an infusion of youth has given their offense an extra kick so far this season.

The Red Wings
Like Dallas, the Wings have been off to a shaky start. They’ve alternated between wins and losses so far this season (on track for a win tonight if the trend continues) though their play has looked better the past few games.
The Wings lost...
PREVIEW 7:45 AM CST
Goals have been hard to come by for the Dallas Stars (2-3-1) in the team's last few games. The team has been in position to win each of the last three games, but has been unable to protect one-goal leads and unable to scratch out equalizing goals once they do fall behind. Glen Gulutzan's team will try again tonight when they head to Motown to take...
The Dallas Stars haven't been able to close out their last two opponents, but having Jamie Benn back could help if they're in that position again Monday night at Columbus.
So could first-liners Jaromir Jagr and Derek Roy.
Benn could make his season debut and Jagr and Roy might return from one-game injury absences as the Stars face a Blue Jackets team that's winless...
The Detroit Red Wings will face off against the Dallas Stars tonight (7:30 PM EST, FSD Plus, Fox Sports Southwest Plus, AM 1270) hoping to rebound from a disappointing loss against Chicago while playing a team in somewhat similar circumstances.
The Stars have also undergone some roster revisions (see: Ray Whitney, Jaromir Jagr and Derek Roy), they've welcomed Jamie Benn back...
Let's put all of the serious talk about the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax aside for a few minutes and enjoy some humor.
Even the Dallas Stars got in on the fun by welcoming Te'o's girlfriend to their home opener.
DALLAS -- David Perron contributed two goals and one assist, leading the St. Louis Blues to a 4-3 win over the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center on Saturday. Both of Perron goals came in the second period, when the Blues exploded for three unanswered after trailing 2-1 at the first intermission. Perron's first of the night and the season came after he skated around...
