DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas Stars have activated goaltender Kari Lehtonen from injured reserve after he missed 12 games with a lower-body injury.

Lehtonen led the NHL with 13 wins when he got hurt Nov. 26 in a game against Phoenix. He could be back in net Thursday night when the Stars host Columbus.

Defenseman Stephane Robidas, who has missed three games with a lower-body injury, was placed on injured reserve by the Stars. That move was retroactive to Dec. 19, when he was hurt in a game against Anaheim.

Robidas has 11 points (two goals, nine assists) in 32 games for Dallas this season.
