DALLAS (AP) -The Stars activated Jere Lehtinen for their game Friday night at Edmonton, ending his 33-game absence with an abdominal injury that led to sports hernia surgery.
Lehtinen had been out since Nov. 21. The right wing had 19 points (six goals, 13 assists) in 21 games before the injury.
Lehtinen led the Stars with 26 goals last season and has seven 20-goal seasons with Dallas, third in franchise history behind Mike Modano (15) and Brian Bellows (10).
