The Stars have recalled Julius Honka from Texas (AHL).
Honka, 21, had three assists in eight games with the Stars earlier this season. The 2014 No.14 pick is offensively gifted and comes back to the Stars with 21 points (5G / 16A) in 30 games with Texas. He has been recalled to replace Johnny Oduya, who has been placed on IR.
Honka (arm) is expected to miss a couple of games.
Honka was injured on Tuesday and is expected to miss a few games with an arm injury. The Stars have a number of defenseman already on the roster, so replacing Honka for a few games shouldn’t be difficult.
The Stars have recalled Julius Honka from Texas (AHL); he will make his NHL debut on Monday.
Honka, 20, was the 14th overall pick in 2014 and tonight he will make his NHL debut. Honka has 12 points (3G / 9A) in 16 games with Texas this season. Honka will skate on the top-pair with Dan Hamhuis and will replace John Klingberg on the top power-play unit.
