The Dallas Stars placed All-Star forward Jamie Benn on injured reserve and recalled forward Matt Fraser from the Texas Stars of the AHL on Sunday.
The move is retroactive to Jan. 14.
Benn missed the Stars' past four games after undergoing appendectomy surgery. He leads the team with 29 assists and is second with 42 points.
Fraser has yet to play in an NHL game. He has 21 goals in 40 games for Texas this season.
