Dallas Makes Roster Cuts, Some Texas Stars On Waiver Wire

The Dallas Stars made expected cuts to their roster today following last night's game versus the Blues. Here are the players cut and where they are going:
Assigned to Texas Stars (AHL) Training Camp
(first practice on the ice is Tuesday in Cedar Park):

G Richard Bachman
RW Sean Backman
D Jordie Benn
G Tyler Beskorowany
LW Luke Gazdic
C Tristan King
D Trevor Ludwig
LW Scott McCulloch
D Guillaume Monast
LW Michael Neal
C Greg Rallo
C Ondrej Roman
RW Raymond Sawada
RW Colton Sceviour
RW Matt Tassone
C Mathieu Tousignant

Returned to his junior team:
D Jace Coyle (Medicine Hat Tigers)

Released from his NHL try-out:
RW Jonathan Cheechoo

From Mike Heika, we also learn that Aaron Gagnon, Travis Morin, Francis Wathier, Maxime Fortunus and Brad Lukowich had to be sent down through waivers. This happens when players have hit certain limits in terms of NHL games played or player age. Hopefully the Stars can sneak these guys through to Cedar Park without anyone else noticing. If the players are claimed by another team, they become Dallas's property again if they do not make the other team's NHL roster.

The Texas Stars report for physicals Monday and have their first on ice practice on Tuesday. Texas plays their first preseason game on Thursday at San Antonio.


  1. I will be there at CPC for practice and afternoon scrimmage! Then have two games coming up this weekend!
