Stars call up pair of defensemen

The Dallas Stars recalled defenseman Philip Larsen from Frolunda of the Swedish Elite League and defenseman Maxime Fortunus from the AHL's Texas Stars on Saturday.

Larsen, who finished the ESL season with one goal and nine assists in 42 games, will not join the Stars until the team returns from Saturday's game in St. Louis. Fortunus was called up in place of the injured Nicklas Grossman. He has appeared in eight games with Dallas this season.
