With Shawn Horcoff and Cody Eakin out for tonight's game against the Calgary Flames, the Dallas Stars have recalled Chris Mueller and Travis Morin from the Texas Stars. Travis Morin practiced on a line centering Colton Sceviour and Erik Cole in morning skate and is expected to play there tonight. Mueller lined up with with Ryan Garbutt and Ray Whitney.

Travis Morin missed the Texas Stars' last game after his wife gave birth to their newest child, a son, on Tuesday night. Lucas Paul is the newest member of the Morin family.

"We got home yesterday at 4:30 PM from the hospital and I was off [to go to Dallas] at 6:30," said Morin.

"I finally got to rest a bit last night." he added, laughing.

Morin and Sceviour are two of the top three leading scorers in the AHL and Dallas is hoping that their chemistry from Texas will combine with Erik Cole's goal scoring to big result tonight.

"It's nice to have the familiarity [with Sceviour]. It makes it easier. Also, Cole definitely knows how to score in this league, so it's a huge plus to be playing with him."
