DALLAS (AP) -The Dallas Stars placed defenseman Mattias Norstrom on the injured list on Friday and brought up defenseman Mark Fistric from the Iowa Stars, their AHL affiliate.
Norstrom sustained a small fracture of his orbital bone in a game on Nov. 7 and hasn't played since. His condition will be evaluated in two weeks. The move is retroactive to Nov. 9.
The 35-year-old Norstrom has played in 852 NHL games with Dallas and the Los Angeles Kings. The Stars acquired him in a trade with the Kings on Feb. 27.
The 21-year-old Fistric played in 15 games for Iowa this season and will be making his NHL debut.
