DALLAS -- The Dallas Stars activated captain Brenden Morrow and Antti Miettinen from the injured reserve list Tuesday before their game against Columbus.

Morrow, a left wing in his first season as the Dallas captain, last played Nov. 24 before missing eight games with a groin strain. Morrow had eight goals and eight assists his first 21 games -- and the Stars were 10-1 in games he had a point.

Miettinen had been on injured reserve since Dec. 6 because of a lower body injury suffered a week earlier in a game at Washington. The right wing has six goals and four assists in 25 games.
