FRISCO, Texas (AP) - Stephen Johns is finally back on the ice for the Dallas Stars after missing nearly 22 months. It hasn't been clear whether concussions played a role in the official diagnosis of post-traumatic headaches. The 28-year-old Johns made his return before the All-Star break in a 7-0 loss to Minnesota. The Stars had a much better feeling after his first home game, a 3-2 overtime win against Tampa Bay. General manager Jim Nill has been protective of Johns by saying issues bigger than a return to the ice were in play.
