Patrik Nemeth has been summoned from the minors.

He skated in five games with Texas, where he picked up one assist and five shots on goal. It's unclear if he'll play Tuesday for the first time since Oct. 18 when he suffered an arm laceration, but it's possible.

Jhonas Enroth allowed three goals on 22 shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to Anaheim.

Enroth is now 0-4-0 since being acquired from Buffalo last month. The 26-year-old hasn't played as bad as his numbers would indicate. His record falls to 13-25-2 with a 3.30 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage. Only Coyotes' goaltender Mike Smith has lost more games this season.

Patrick Eaves scored a goal in Dallas' 3-1 loss to Anaheim on Sunday night.

This was Eaves' first game back after missing seven games with a concussion. The 30-year-old tied the game at one with a power play goal in the second period but the Ducks eventually pulled away. Trevor Daley and John Klingberg picked up the assists on Eaves' goal. He now has seven goals and 14 points in 29 games this season.

Mattias Janmark-Nyle was traded from Detroit to the Dallas Stars as part of a package for Erik Cole.

Janmark-Nyle was Detroit's third round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. The 22-year-old has 13 goals and 36 points with Frolunda HC in the Swedish Hockey League this season.

The Dallas Stars acquired Mattias Backman from the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.

The Stars got Backman, Mattas Janmark and a second round draft pick in 2015 in exchange for Erik Cole and a conditional third round pick. Backman, 22, was Detroit's fifth round pick in 2011. Backman has four goals and 16 points in 23 games with Linkopings HC of the Swedish Hockey League.

Jhonas Enroth will get the start in Sunday's game against Anaheim.

The 26-year-old has an overall record of 13-24-2 with a 3.31 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage with Buffalo and Dallas.

Patrick Eaves (concussion) practiced with his teammates on Saturday morning.

Eaves has been out since February 13th after he was hit in the head by a puck. The 30-year-old will take part in Sunday's morning skate and he will then decide if he's fit enough to play against Anaheim.

Stars head coach Lindy Ruff said that his goaltending has been the cause of some frustration this season.

"There's nights that he has to steal games, there's nights where he has to out-perform the other guy," Ruff said. "Our goaltending has been tough on our team, and I think that's where the frustration is." By his own admission, Lehtonen has said that he needs to play better. His numbers are way down from where they usually are. The 31-year-old has a respectable 25-13-10 record but his goals-against-average sits at 2.97 and his save percentage is only at .905.
Mar 1 - 11:01 AM

Trevor Daley, who is having a surprisingly solid season, is closing in on some Stars' franchise records.

He is two goals behind Darryl Sydors' team record of 69 and is five assists behind Stephane Robidas' 163 for eighth place on the franchise list. Daley has received more power-play ice time in 2014-15 than in seasons' past and that in part is why he has registered 32 points this campaign. He should no longer be available on the wire, but if he is, grab him.

Dallas coach Lindy Ruff was extremely critical of Kari Lehtonen following the Stars' 5-4 shootout loss to Colorado Friday night.

In fact, Ruff seemed to blame the loss entirely on Lehtonen. "I know this is hard, but the goaltending performance doesn't match the effort of the team,' Ruff said. 'You need goaltending. It's as simple as that. There's nights that he has to steal games, there's nights where he has to out-perform the other guy. Our goaltending has been tough on our team, and I think that's where the frustration is." There is no telling whether Lehtonen will get the start Sunday against Anaheim. It's not as if newly-acquired Jhonas Enroth, who has yet to win in four starts with the Stars, has been any better.
Feb 28 - 12:46 PM

Kari Lehtonen stopped 19 of 23 shots in Friday's 5-4 shootout loss to Colorado.

The Stars were up 3-1 and 4-3 in the third period but they were unable to hold on for the win. Lehtonen is winless in his last three starts and he has allowed 14 goals during the streak. The 31-year-old is now 25-13-10 with a 2.97 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage in 51 games this season.
Feb 27 - 11:39 PM

Cody Eakin scored two goals and an assist in Friday's 5-4 shootout loss to Colorado.

Eakin opened the scoring at the 2:45 mark of the second period and he extended the Stars' lead to 3-1 early in the third. The 23-year-old also had three shots and a plus-1 rating in 17:15 of ice time. Eakin now has 14 goals and 28 points in 59 games this season. Jason Spezza and Antoine Roussel also scored for the Stars.
Feb 27 - 11:31 PM

Kari Lehtonen will get the start against the Colorado Avalanche on Friday night.

Through 50 starts this season, Lehtonen has managed to compile a 25-13-9 record despite a .906 save percentage and a 2.96 GAA. He's also posted four shutouts, 23 Quality Starts, and ranks tied for third-most with seven Really Bad Starts. Lastly, he's only beaten the Avs twice in his last 10 tries since 2011. Allowing 31 goals in the process.

Tyler Seguin has started to work out while rehabbing an MCL tear to his knee.

He said he is feeling much better and he's hoping to be out closer to the four week range of his three-to-six week timetable. "The doctor says that I'm beyond ahead of schedule," Seguin said. "So, that's good. I haven't skated yet. But hopefully, that will come in the next few days."
Feb 26 - 1:35 PM

Jhonas Enroth was beaten for three goals on 24 shots in a 4-2 defeat at the hands of the Jets on Tuesday.

Enroth has yet to record a victory with his new team, sporting a 0-0-3 record to go along 3.73 GAA and an .867 save percentage. It may be a long time until he sees the crease again since the Stars are likely to turn to Kari Lehtonen for the bulk of their stretch run.
