Jyrki Jokipakka called up to Dallas Stars

As reported earlier, Jyrki Jokipakka has been called up to the Dallas Stars.

The move was needed after Kevin Connauton was claimed off waivers by the Columbus Blue Jackets, leaving Dallas with just six defensemen.

There are a couple scenarios that could play out, but Jokipakka may have played his last game with Texas. He is waiver exempt, so he can return to Texas without too much trouble if needed.

Texas is now at six defensemen, meaning a move to bring in a seventh will likely happen before Friday’s game against San Antonio.
