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.

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