The Dallas Stars have recalled defenseman Gavin Bayreuther to the NHL this afternoon. It is the defenseman's first recall to the NHL this season. Following an injury to John Klingberg, the Dallas Stars are looking for some insurance as they hit the road for an extended stretch. Potentially, Bayreuther could stick around with the big club for their entire Canadian swing, a stretch of four games spanning all of next week.
Bayreuther missed the last Texas Stars game in San Antonio on Saturday with an undisclosed injury. Texas has been idle all week and sits at six defenseman if Dillon Heatherington is ready to return to the lineup.
