DALLAS STARS PLACE ZUBOV ON INJURED RESERVE
AND RECALL STEPHAN UNDER EMERGENCY CONDITIONS
Zubov on I.R. Retro-active to January 17 With Groin Injury

FRISCO, Tex. –- The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has placed defenseman Sergei Zubov on the injured reserve, retro-active to January 17, with a groin injury. The club also recalled goaltender Tobias Stephan under emergency conditions from the Iowa Stars, Dallas’ primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League. Stephan will join the club in Minnesota for their contest against the Wild tonight, as Marty Turco did not make the trip for precautionary reasons due to a sore neck.

Zubov, 37, has missed Dallas’ last seven games with the injury, as well as the 2008 NHL All-Star Game in Atlanta, after having been selected to the Western Conference squad for the Jan. 27 game. In 46 games this season, he has collected four goals and 31 assists for 35 points, leading Dallas in assists and average time on ice (25:41). Among NHL defensemen, he ranks tied for fourth in assists and tied for eighth in points. He is the only defensemen to record 30-plus assists for 12 straight seasons now and is just five points away from becoming the only NHL blue-liner with 12 straight campaigns of 40-plus points.

For the first time in his career, Zubov was nominated for the Norris Trophy following the 2005-06 season and was also named to the NHL Second All-Star Team. In 1,058 games over his career with the New York Rangers (1992-95), the Pittsburgh Penguins (1995-96) and the Stars (1996-present), he has tallied 152 goals and 615 assists for 767 points. He is the highest-scoring Russian defenseman in NHL history and is third all-time among European-born defenseman (Nicklas Lidstrom and Borje Salming).

A two-time Stanley Cup winner (1999 with Dallas and 1994 with the Rangers) and Olympian (1992), Zubov has also played in 153 career playoff games. During the post-season over his career, he has notched 23 goals and 88 assists for 111 points. In 1994, he became the first defensemen to lead a team in scoring that finished first overall in the NHL. During the 1993-94 season with New York, he registered 89 points (12-77-89) in 78 contests.

Stephan, 24, made his NHL debut on Oct. 13 at Chicago and stopped 38 of the 40 shots he faced in a 2-1 overtime loss. In 39 games with the Iowa Stars this season, Stephan has posted a 17-16-2 record with a 2.60 goals-against-average, a .907 save percentage and two shutouts.

The 6-2, 180-pound goaltender appeared in his first North American professional season in 2006-07 with Iowa and posted a 10-15-0 record, a 2.88 goals-against-average and a shutout in 27 games played. He also played in two of Iowa’s Calder Cup Playoff games last season, recording a 3.46 goals-against-average.

The native of Zurich, Switzerland, was originally selected by Dallas in the second round (No. 34 overall) of the 2002 Entry Draft. He played for the Kloten Flyers in the Swiss National League from 2002-06 and represented Switzerland at the 2002 and 2003 World Junior Championships, as well as the 2001 and 2002 World Under-18 Championships.
