Goalie Adrien LeMay Called Up To Texas

Goaltender Adrien LeMay has been called up to the AHL by the Texas Stars, according to the CHL transactions sheet. LeMay, who is under contract to Texas, is currently playing in the CHL with the Allen Americans.

LeMay is having a pretty great season in the Central League with a 8-1-1 record despite a 2.99 GAA and .905 SV%. His club, the Americans, are the #2 team in the league. LeMay was recently placed on The Goalie Guild list of Top 100 goaltending prospects at #98.

This callup surely means that emergency backup Dave Brown from the Quad City Mallards will be released today. Emergency backup Dave Brown has been released from his PTO as a result of the callup.

UPDATE: Here's your release:
The Dallas Stars announced on Thursday that the club has assigned defenseman Philip Larsen to the Texas Stars, Dallas’ primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). The Texas Stars announced that goalie Adrien LeMay has been recalled from the Allen Americans, Texas’ Central Hockey League (CHL) affiliate. Texas also released goalie David Brown from a PTO (professional tryout agreement).

Larsen, 21, has skated in three games for Dallas this season, collecting one assist. He has spent the majority of 2010-11 with Texas, playing in 18 games, recording nine assists and four penalty minutes. The Esbjerg, Denmark, native made his NHL debut last season with Dallas, dressing in three games and posting one assist.

Larsen skated in 116 games from 2006-2010 for Vastra Frolunda of the Swedish Elite League, tallying 27 points (3g, 24a). The 6-1, 183-pound defenseman was drafted by Dallas in the fifth round (149th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
