Here's the release:
The Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL's Dallas Stars, announced Sunday they have recalled rookie defenseman Brandon Anselmini from their ECHL affiliate, the Idaho Steelheads.
Anselmini (an-suhl-MEE-nee), 23, is on his first career call-up to the AHL after tallying 11 points in 18 games with the Steelheads (2-9=11). The 5-foot-10, 185-pound defenseman was signed to an AHL contract over the summer after completing a four-year career at Ferris State University.
