Texas Stars Report: Franchise Records Fall

The Texas Stars Report on Defending Big D...
Despite a week with two wins, the Texas Stars (27-29-2-2, 58 pts, #15 Western Conference) are close to sealing their fate as the first edition of the AHL club not to make the playoffs. Needing 28 points to match the current 8th seed's pace, Texas would need a 14-2-0 record from here on out to make the postseason.

While that may be a dire outlook, there are positives to be found among the bigger picture of not making the playoffs. This week's games saw several records set and continued for Texas Stars players. In Saturday's game, Matt Fraser broke the record for goals in a single season, previous set by Aaron Gagnon in 2009-10. Fraser's 28th of the year came shorthanded. He is also tied for the single season record for PPGs at ten.

After an early season cold streak, Colton Sceviour has exploded in the second half. Since December 27th, he has tallied a point in 16 straight home games. He has 33 points overall home and away since Christmas. It is by far the top record in the AHL and for the franchise for such a streak. He's clutch to boot with six game-winners.

Finally, Travis Morin shattered the single season assists record in early February. The record, previously held by Perttu Lindgren at 33, is now at 41 and grows with each helper from Morin's stick.
