Its hockey folks. Every team will get bit by the injury bug at some point. Dallas it’s your turn. Reports out of the Dallas Stars camp say that the Stars have recalled their 2010 first round pick goaltender Jack Campbell. The Stars Kari Lehtonen suffered a lower body injury on Friday.
It is unclear if Campbell will be given his first taste of the NHL or not, but Dallas wants to make sure they have an insurance policy on their bench. With 5 games over the next week this may be Campbell’s shot to show he can play in the NHL. For now look for the Stars to turn to Dan Ellis; who came in to replace Lehtonen on Friday. After three appearances Lehtonen has a .953 SV%, and a GAA of 1.57.
Dallas is current sitting in 4th place in the Central Division; with a record of 2-1, and sit in 10th place in the West. I can see the Stars making a run at one of the Wild Card spots, but it going to take a bit of luck. Hopefully this little injury bug doesn’t make its way through the locker room.
