Dallas Sends Nilstorp, Makes Benn Assignment Official


Cristopher Nilstorp will be rejoining the Texas Stars for tomorrow's home game against Rockford. Additionally, the Stars made Jordie Benn's assignment, which we reported here this morning, official.

Nilstorp is coming off the IR in Dallas after injuring his groin in his second NHL start. It remains to be seen how he recovers from the injury, which is his first big setback in North America.

This gives Texas three tenders, putting Tyler Beskorowany on his way back to Idaho. While that hasn't been officially announced, it should be expected around the roster deadline today (4 PM CST).

  1. I would expect Besko to stay until the coaches have seen Nilstorp practice for themselves to be sure he is 100%.

    1. Good point. This will be his first game action and a groin is not a forgiving injury.
