Lehtinen back in Stars' lineup after being sidelined with injuries

DALLAS -- The Dallas Stars on Friday activated right wing
Jere Lehtinen, who missed the past 33 games with an abdominal
injury that led to sports hernia surgery.

The Stars played at Edmonton on Friday night.

Lehtinen has been out since Nov. 21. He had 19 points (six
goals, 13 assists) in 21 games before the injury.

Last season, Lehtinen led the Stars with 26 goals and has seven
20-goal seasons with the Stars, third in franchise history behind
Mike Modano (15) and Brian Bellows (10).
