Sawada and Wathier called up to Dallas

Ray Sawada's stint in Austin was short lived indeed. After being sent down on Saturday, Ray was recalled to Dallas today along with winger Francis Wathier. It is both Sawada and Wathier's thrid callup this season. Here's the relevant portion of the release:
Sawada, 24, has played in five games for Dallas this season, recording two shots. He has skated in 36 games for Texas this season, collecting three goals and six assists. The Richmond, British Columbia native scored 76 points (31g, 45a) over 137 games during four years at Cornell University. He was Dallas’ second round selection (52nd overall) in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

Wathier, 25, made his NHL debut this season with Dallas and has dressed in two games for the club this season, accruing five penalty minutes and three shots. He has spent the majority of this season with the Texas Stars, where he has played in 50 games, recording 23 points (11g, 12a) and 76 PIM. The 6-4, 208-pound left wing was Dallas’ sixth round selection (185th overall) at the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.


  1. So much for having everyone back at home! Ahhh, the life of an AHL player.

    Hope they both do well, they've both worked hard to earn it!
