The Stars announced the signing of forward Cody Chupp to a standard player contract today. Chupp joined the Stars on an ATO at the end of their inaugural season. Chupp skated in 9 regular season games and 2 playoff contests, earning 1 point in the regular season and none in the playoffs. I don't know that we saw Chupp enough to make a judgement on what kind of signing this is. Chupp attended Ferris State, the same university as Stars forward Greg Rallo.
The Texas Stars announced on Thursday that the club has agreed to terms with forward Cody Chupp for the 2010-11 season.
Chupp, 25, made his AHL debut with Texas last season, ending a four-year playing career at Ferris State University. In nine regular season games with Texas, the 6-foot-1, 192-pound forward dished out one assist for one point. Chupp made his AHL debut against Chicago on March 26th and recorded his first career pro point with an assist against San Antonio on April 2 at Cedar Park Center. He was held scoreless in two playoff appearances for Texas this past spring.
At Ferris State University, he scored 35 goals and dished out 60 assists for 95 NCAA points in 144 games played from 2006-10. As a senior, Chupp tied for the team lead with 21 assists and placed third on the team in scoring with 30 points. The Big Rapids, MI native also scored nine times in 35 games played this past season. Chupp posted a career-high 11 goals and tied his career high with 30 points as a sophomore at FSU in 2007-08.
