Dallas Calls For Garbutt

Following the injury of Jamie Benn last night, Dallas announced today that they have recalled Ryan Garbutt from the Texas Stars to fill his roster spot. Garbutt is fourth on the team in points but also first in PIMs. He needs to be disciplined in his time in Dallas. If he isn't careful, he could spend more time in the box than on the ice. He needs to fly low in terms of penalties but finish his checks and play the physical game he is known for here in Texas.

This leaves Texas with exactly twelve forwards in Cedar Park. Lines would shake out something like this:

Sceviour-Glennie-Wathier
Fraser-Morin-Hedden
Schultz-Tousignant-Esposito
Gazdic-Hauswirth-Godard

Here's the release:
The Dallas Stars announced on Friday that the club has recalled forward Ryan Garbutt from the Texas Stars, Dallas’ primary affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

Garbutt, 26, has played in 50 games for Texas this season, scoring 16 goals and 17 assists totaling 33 points. He ranks fourth in overall scoring for Texas and first with 96 penalty minutes. The 6-1, 195-pound forward from Winnipeg, MB was signed by Dallas as a free agent on Sept. 18, 2009.
