Stars activate Lehtonen, send prospect Campbell to minors

DALLAS (AP) The Stars have activated goalie Kari Lehtonen from injured reserve and sent prospect Jack Campbell back to the minor leagues.

Lehtonen has missed three games since sustaining a lower-body injury after replacing Antti Niemi during the second period of a 7-4 loss to Ottawa on Nov. 24.

Niemi has made the majority of the starts after joining Dallas in the offseason. But Lehtonen, the starter the previous five seasons, is 9-1 in 10 starts and has a slightly better goals-against average and save percentage than Niemi.

Campbell didn't appear in a game in his brief stint. He was sent back to the Texas Stars of the AHL on Wednesday.

Dallas visits Vancouver on Thursday night.
