Vincour Healthy, Wathier Assigned

With Tomas Vincour coming off the IR today, Francis Wathier was assigned to Texas this afternoon. By my count, that still leaves Dallas with just 12 forwards, so I'm not sure about this assignment. However, Texas will certainly welcome Wathier back to the lineup after missing him in Monday's game against Rockford. Bachman gets the start tonight for Dallas.

Here's the release:
The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has activated Tomas Vincour from injured reserve and assigned Francis Wathier to the Texas Stars, Dallas’ primary affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

Vincour, 21, has missed the last 14 games with a lower body injury after being placed on injured reserve retroactive to Dallas’ game on Dec. 15 against the New York Islanders. The 6-2, 204-pound forward has skated in 14 games for Dallas this season, recording one goal and two assists for three points. He has been an even or plus player in 11 contests for the Stars so far this season.

Wathier, 27, went scoreless in his lone game with Dallas registering three hits in 5:25 of ice time. He leads the Texas Stars (AHL) with a +10 rating in 37 games, accumulating eight goals and 15 assists for 23 points.
