The Dallas Stars have recalled Brett Ritchie, who missed the start of the season while recovering from offseason wrist surgery, from the Texas Stars of the AHL.
Ritchie has 28 points (14-14-28) in 35 games with Texas and is second on the team with six power play goals. Last season in Dallas, he scored six goals and added three assists in 31 NHL games.
As it is after the NHL trade deadline, the Stars are no longer bound by the 23-man roster limit. However, they do have a maximum of four call-ups from the deadline until the end of the season, except for emergency circumstances.
