Secondly, Texas signed Dallas Stars draft pick Chris Martenet, a defenseman out of the OHL. He won a championship in the OHL with London last season and was traded to Ottawa. He signed an ELC with Dallas at the end of last season. He will likely play in Texas or Idaho next season. For what it's worth, Martenet is now the third 6'7 defenseman in the Stars system (Miro Karjalainen and Jamie Oleksiak being the others).
Finally, Dallas recalled Justin Dowling earlier today.
Here's the Martenet release:
The Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, announced Tuesday defenseman Chris Martenet has been assigned to the club after finishing his junior season in the Ontario Hockey League.
Martenet (mar-teh-NEHT), 20, comes to Cedar Park after a three-year stint in the OHL with the London Knights and Ottawa 67’s. The 6-foot-7, 215-pound blueliner also spent the 2013-14 season with the USHL’s Indiana Ice. The St. Louis, Mo. native won the Memorial Cup with London in 2016 as champions of Canada’s major-junior hockey league system.
He tallied 16 points (5-11=16) in 55 games this season split between London and Ottawa. On May 18, 2016, he signed a three-year, entry-level contract with Dallas.
Martenet was a fourth-round pick of Dallas (103rd overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft.
