Stars activate Ribeiro month after throat injury

DALLAS - The Dallas Stars have activated centre Mike Ribeiro a month after he injured his throat in a game against the New York Rangers.

Ribeiro came off injured reserve Monday while wingers Raymond Sawada and Francis Wathier were recalled from the Texas Stars of the AHL.

Ribeiro was accidentally struck in the throat by the stick of New York's Christopher Higgins in the Rangers' 5-2 victory on Jan. 6.

He spent several days in a New York hospital after undergoing a tracheotomy.

Ribeiro has 10 goals and 23 assists in 43 games for the Stars.
