DALLAS (AP) -The Dallas Stars activated center Mike Ribeiro and placed backup goalie Mike Smith on injured reserve Wednesday.
Ribeiro, the Stars' leading scorer with 59 points last season, missed the preseason and the first three regular-season games with an ankle injury.
Smith, the backup to Marty Turco, injured his arm in practice Tuesday and will miss at least three games. He started the third game of the season for Dallas, a 5-1 loss at Nashville.
