Toby Petersen was a popular guy at the Dallas Stars practice facility in Frisco Saturday morning. A lot of the team’s staff and media members were welcoming back Petersen, who was recalled from the Texas Stars of the AHL.

“I am excited to be back,” said Petersen.

There was also a reunion with a former teammate from his playing days in Pittsburgh, a guy named Jaromir Jagr.

“We had a brief chat about the old days,” Petersen said. “It was very brief, but we had 12 games together back in the day.”

And one of those games was particularly memorable for Petersen.

“He assisted on my first goal. It was a game-winner in Detroit (December 10, 2000),” Petersen said. “I remember him regardless, but he’ll have a special place in my memory for that. He hasn’t changed much.”
