Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

DAL­LAS — The Stars have placed goalie Kari Le­hto­nen on the in­jured list, clear­ing the way for prospect Jack Camp­bell to back up Antti Niemi. Camp­bell was called up from the Texas Stars of the AHL on Thurs­day along with de­fence­man Pa­trik Nemeth. Le­hto­nen re­placed Niemi in the sec­ond pe­riod of Tues­day’s loss to Ot­tawa but left af­ter just 8 min­utes with an up­per-body in­jury. The 23-year-old Camp­bell is 3-3 with a 3.8 goals-against av­er­age and .873 save per­cent­age. The Stars’ 2010 first-round pick started the sea­son on the non-ros­ter list in Texas af­ter get­ting hurt dur­ing the pre­sea­son. Nemeth fin­ished a 14-day con­di­tion­ing as­sign­ment with Texas, get­ting one as­sist in eight games. He has ap­peared in two games for Dal­las this sea­son.
