Frisco, TX ( - The Dallas Stars activated starting goaltender Kari Lehtonen from injured reserve on Monday.

The 29-year-old Finn had been sidelined since suffering a lower-body injury in an Oct. 11 game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Backup Dan Ellis started the next four games in Lehtonen's absence before 2010 No. 11 overall pick Jack Campbell made his NHL debut Sunday in Anaheim.

Campbell, who stopped 41-of-47 shots in the 6-3 loss to the Ducks, was assigned to Texas of the American Hockey League in a corresponding move.

The Stars also recalled defenseman Aaron Rome from his conditioning assignment with Texas.
