The Stars put Steve Ott on injured reserve after his emergency appendectomy and in the process claimed Brandon Segal off waivers.
I'll confess that I don't know much about the 6-foot-2, 209-pound right wing. But he's a right-handed shot and is 26 years old. He has played in only 27 games in the NHL. But the Stars will see what he has and he gives them some more depth with Ott out.
Ott is expected to return after the Olympic break.
