DALLAS -- The Dallas Stars placed right wing Jere Lehtinen on injured reserve Monday and activated defenseman Mattias Norstrom.

Lehtinen, 34, could be out for eight to 10 weeks. He's missed six games since suffering an abdominal injury that required surgery.

Norstrom, 35, missed 12 games after fracturing the orbital bone around one of his eyes Nov. 7 at San Jose.
