The Dallas Stars have put Aaron Rome on waivers.

Rome, 30, hasn’t played at all this year due to a hip injury. He did conduct a brief rehab assignment with AHL Texas prior to his recall on Monday, recording three shots on goal and six penalty minutes in three games.

Rome appeared in 27 games for Dallas last year, recording five assists while averaging 15:20 TOI per game. It was thought he’d provide stability and experience on a blueline that’s been scorched recently — Dallas has surrendered 22 goals in its last five games, including 11 over its past two — but now it’s possible he won’t make it back to the team.

As for why the Stars put Rome on waivers, here’s Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News:

    Somewhere in New York, Alain Vigneault just jolted from his afternoon nap into high alert.

    Right, because that’s exactly what the Rangers need right now: a recovering-from-injury defenseman.
