DALLAS (AP) -- The Dallas Stars have activated forward Jamie Benn from injured reserve in time for him to participate in the All-Star game.

Benn missed five games while recovering from an emergency appendectomy. He's expected to play in Sunday's All-Star game in Ottawa and be back in the lineup when the Stars return from the break Tuesday at Anaheim.

The 22-year-old Benn has 13 goals and 29 assists.

The Stars also sent Tomas Vincour, Philip Larsen and Matt Fraser to the Texas Stars of the AHL.
