Sutherby on IR, Fortunus recalled

Stars forward Brian Sutherby (groin) will go on Injured Reserve retroactive to Nov. 12, which was his last game. Dallas is activating Fabian Brunnstrom (shoulder) from IR and sending him to the Texas Stars, Dallas' AHL affiliate, on a conditioning assignment.

The pulled groin of Nicklas Grossman also necessitated that the Stars call up defenseman Maxime Fortunus on emergency conditions from the Texas Stars. He will be in Dallas in time for Wednesday's game with St. Louis, but it's not known if he'll play. Forward Warren Peters has been reassigned to Texas.

In Peters' case, this had nothing to do with his play, which coach Marc Crawford praised. But Peters is on a two-way contract, meaning he doesn't make nearly as much in the minors and it's easy to send him back and forth.

Sutherby and Brunnstrom both participated in a full practice today in Frisco.
