The Forth Worth Star-Telegram's five for fighting has a good explanation of what would need to happen to see "tall, bald Alex Auld" in Austin, Texas:
"Auld, who makes $1 million this season, will go through waivers. If he is not picked up, he will be sent through recall waivers and [other NHL] teams will get a shot at him for half his remaining salary. If no team picks him up, he will be assigned to the Texas Stars. It is not expected that he will return to practice with the [Dallas] unless there is an injury."Auld is 9-6-3 in 21 games played with a 3.00 GAA and a .894 SV%. Auld has played 150 AHL games, all but two of them for the Manitoba Moose. He has played 204 games in the NHL and started 186 of them. Career in the NHL, he has a 83-81-2-26 record (W-L-T-OTL) with a 2.78 GAA and .904 SV%.
