ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Dallas Stars have cleared the way for defenseman Stephen Johns to return after missing nearly 22 months because of post-traumatic headaches. The Stars activated Johns before their game at Minnesota on Saturday night. Forward Radek Faksa was placed on injured reserve to make room for Johns on the active roster. The 27-year-old Johns hasn't played since March 29, 2018, at the Wild. It was the last of a career-high 75 games in his third NHL season. Johns missed the last five games that year before sitting out all of last season as headaches persisted.
