DALLAS STARS ACTIVATE NORSTROM FROM INJURED RESERVE;
PLACE LEHTINEN ON IR


FRISCO, Tex. – The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has activated defenseman Mattias Norstrom from the injured reserve list and placed right wing Jere Lehtinen on injured reserve, retroactive to November 21.

Norstrom, 35, suffered a small fracture to his orbital bone in the Stars’ Nov. 7 contest at San Jose and missed the next 12 games due to the injury. He has gone scoreless with 12 penalty minutes in 15 games this season. In 852 career NHL games with Los Angeles and Dallas, Norstrom has posted 16 goals and 136 assists for 152 points with 633 penalty minutes. He has added two assists and 38 PIM in 38 career Stanley Cup Playoff games.

The native of Stockholm, Sweden, was acquired by Dallas from Los Angeles on February 27, 2007, with Konstantin Pushkarev and two 2007 draft picks in exchange for Jaroslav Modry, Johan Fransson, a 2008 first-round pick and two 2007 draft selections. The 6-2, 210-pound defenseman is a two-time NHL All-Star (1999, 2004) and has twice represented Sweden in the Winter Olympics (1998, 2002). He was chosen to Team Sweden for the 2006 Winter Olympics, but missed the Games due to health reasons. 
 
Lehtinen, 34, has missed the past six games with an abdominal injury that required surgery. He is expected to miss the next 8-10 weeks. In 21 games this season, he has tallied six goals and 13 assists for 19 points with a 5 rating. The 6-0, 192-pound right wing missed only 11 total games over Dallas’ previous two seasons.

Last season, Lehtinen led the club in goals (26) and was second in game-winners (5) and power play tallies (11). Only Mike Modano (15) and Brian Bellows (10) have more 20-goal seasons than Lehtinen, who collected his seventh 20-goal campaign last year. He has won three Selke Trophies over his career, tying Guy Carbonneau for the second most Selke awards in league history (Bob Gainey has four). The Espoo, Finland, native has also been nominated for the Selke a total of six times.
