FRISCO, Texas - Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has recalled left wing Joel Kiviranta from the Texas Stars.

Kiviranta, 23, has recorded one goal (1-01) with 13 shots and an average time on ice per game of 10:39 in 11 NHL games with Dallas this season. The winger has also skated in 48 AHL contests with Texas in 2019-20 and has registered 23 points (12-1123). Kiviranta ranks fourth on Texas with 12 goals this season, while he's tied for second on the team with three game-winning goals.
