Dallas Stars Recall Cristopher Nilstorp from Texas Stars Under Emergency Conditions

The Dallas Stars announced today that goaltender Cristopher Nilstorp has been recalled under emergency conditions from the Texas Stars, Dallas' development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

The recall was necessary because of the lower-body injury goaltender Kari Lehtonen suffered in Tuesday's game against Los Angeles. He is currently listed as day-to-day.

Nilstorp, 29, has an 18-11-5 record in 36 appearances for Texas this season. The 6-foot-4 goaltender ranks 10th in the AHL with a 2.26 goals against average (GAA), and has earned a .909 save percentage (SV%) with four shutouts in 2012-13. He has a 1-3-1 record with a .897 SV% and a 3.09 GAA in five appearances for Dallas this season. The Malmo, Sweden native helped Farjestad BK capture the Le Mat Trophy in 2011, which is earned annually by the victors in the Swedish Elite League playoffs. Nilstorp went undrafted and was signed by Dallas as a free agent on June 5, 2012.

The Dallas Stars, who currently sit two points out of the eighth and final playoff spot, faceoff against the Nashville Predators this Friday, April 12 at Bridgestone Arena at 7:00 p.m. CT (TV: FOX Sports Southwest PLUS; Radio: 1310 The Ticket).
