Stars recall Brunnstrom

The Stars announced Wednesday that they have recalled left wing Fabian Brunnstrom from the Texas Stars, Dallas' primary AHL affiliate. He was sent there for a conditioning assignment Dec. 30. He played in six games and had one goal and four assists.

Brunnstrom, 24, has played in 23 games for Dallas this season. He has one goal and six assists. Brunnstrom has had trouble regularly cracking a Stars lineup that is deep at forward. He had 29 points (17 goals, 12 assists) last season, his first in the NHL.

Brunnstrom rejoins the team in time for Thursday's game in Montreal.
