Stars activate Rome, place Gonchar on IR

Frisco, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - The Dallas Stars activated defenseman Aaron Rome from injured reserve and placed defenseman Sergei Gonchar on injured reserve.

Rome has been limited to just three games this season due to injuries.

The 30-year-old Rome was signed by Dallas as a free agent on July 1, 2012. He recorded five assists and 18 penalty minutes in 27 games with the Stars during the lockout- shortened 2013 season.

Gonchar (concussion-like symptoms) leads all Stars defensemen with 12 points in 35 games this season. His move is retroactive to Dec. 21, when he was the recipient of a hit in a 3-2 shootout loss against San Jose.
