With Patrick Sharp out of the Dallas Stars’ lineup again due to concussion issues, the team officially announced on Tuesday the call-up of forward Jason Dickinson.

Dickinson, 21, missed the Stars’ training camp and the start of the season due to summer hip surgery, but has been impressive for the AHL’s Texas Stars since returning, with 10 points in 13 games. The skilled two-way center made his NHL debut with Dallas in the last game of the 2015-16 season, picking up a goal.

There’s no word yet on whether or not Dickinson will actually draw into the lineup, but if he does he could provide some speed and offensive support for the team’s Bottom 6.

Here’s the official press release:

FRISCO, Texas - Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has recalled forward Jason Dickinson from the Texas Stars, Dallas' top development affiliate in the American Hockey League.

Dickinson, 21, has registered 10 points (4-6=10) in 13 games with Texas this season, while he ranks sixth on the team with a +6 plus/minus rating. The forward began the 2016-17 season on the injured non-roster list with a hip injury.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound native of Georgetown, Ont. was selected by Dallas in the first round (29th overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft. Dickinson has appeared in one career NHL contest, making his debut and scoring his first career NHL goal (1-0=1) on April 7, 2016 against Colorado.

The Texas Stars are the primary development affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, and are currently playing their eighth season at H-E-B Center at Cedar Park.
