Fabian Brunnstrom, who has been with the Texas Stars for six games on a conditioning assignment, was recalled to the Dallas Stars today. The was expected, as Dallas stated when they sent him down that he would return to the club for the January 14th matchup with the Canadiens in Montreal. Brunnstrom showed us a lot more on the ice this time in Austin, with 5 points and a +1 rating. He was on a line with some high-flying forwards, including Sceviour, Lindgren, and Morin. Here's the release.
The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has recalled left wing Fabian Brunnstrom from the Texas Stars, Dallas’ primary affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). He was assigned to Texas for a conditioning assignment on December 30, where he appeared in six games, scoring one goal and four assists for five points.
Brunnstrom, 24, has skated in 23 games for Dallas this season, collecting one goal and six assists. The 6-2, 212-pound left wing played in 55 games for the Stars in his first NHL season in 2008-09, recording 29 points (17g, 12a). The Jonstorp, Sweden native skated for Farjestads BK of the Swedish Elite League in 2007-08, notching nine goals and 28 assists in 54 games. He was signed as a free agent by Dallas on May 8, 2008.
The Dallas Stars will play at Montreal on Thursday night (6:30 pm CT, TV: FOX Sports Southwest, Radio: Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket).
Expected yeah but this still sucks. Lindgren's line was buzzing last night, always an offensive threat, with Fabian and Colton on the wings. In the third period Fabian put on a brief but impressive display of just how strong a skater he is when he muscled past two defenders, circled the net very tightly and got off a good shot on his forehand.ReplyDelete
This was Brunnstroms second "conditioning" assignment. The first was after he came off the Dallas Stars IR. Now he gets his second. Is Brunnstrom still not 100% or is he getting sent down to find his mojo again?ReplyDelete
