DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas Stars' Kari Lehtonen left Saturday night's game at 6:37 of the third period after the Minnesota Wild's Erik Haula ran into the goalie.

In Lehtonen's place, Tim Thomas made his Stars debut. They acquired him from the Florida Panthers in a trade at Wednesday's deadline. Minnesota was leading 3-2.

Haula received 15 minutes in penalties, a major for charging plus a game misconduct.

There was no immediate announcement about the extent of any injury to Lehtonen.
