Texas Hits the Road with Nilstorp, York as Robinson Heads to Idaho

What to do with the goalie situation was an open question after Wednesday's game. With Nilstorp healthy and two other fit tenders on the roster, Texas had to decide whether to assign Josh Robinson to Idaho or release Allen York from PTO. GM Scott White opted to assign Robinson and keep York as the team heads to Utica for their only game at the Comets this season.

Texas plays back to back on Saturday and Sunday this weekend so York and Nilstorp will probably each get a start. No word if Campbell also traveled with the team.

Texas also has not announced any moves yet regarding defense, hinting at the possible return of Maxime Fortunus after a one-game absence. Without Fortunus and Nemeth, Texas would be down to six defenseman and common wisdom would dictate that they would look to call up a defenseman from Idaho, likely Ryan Button.

Here's the release:
The Texas Stars, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Dallas Stars, announced today that goaltender Josh Robinson has been returned on loan to the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL.

Robinson, 23, has appeared in four games for Texas this season, recorded a 26-save shutout in his AHL debut on October 19th vs. San Antonio. The Frankenmuth, Michigan native has a 2-1-0 record for the Stars, with a 2.49 goals-against average and a 0.893 save percentage. Robinson has also started two ECHL games for Idaho this year and is 1-1-0, with a 3.00 GAA and a 0.914 save percentage.
