Lehtinen taken off IR list


FRISCO, Tex. – The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has activated right wing Jere Lehtinen from the injured reserve list.

Lehtinen, 34, missed the past 33 games (from Nov. 23 – Jan. 29) with an abdominal injury that required surgery. 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.
