As I hypothesized yesterday, Tyler Beskorowany was sent down to Idaho today before the game with Grand Rapids. This was nothing about Beskorowany's play at all. This was a way to get him more playing time, as he has only gotten two starts in the last 30 days. In Idaho, he will get a chance to develop at a better pace with more minutes.

Here's the release:
Prior to the game, the Dallas Stars reassigned goaltender Tyler Beskorowany to the Idaho Steelheads. Beskorowany posted a 1.85 goals against average and stopped 202 of 213 shots (.948%) in his last six games (4-2-0). Overall, Beskorowany is 4-4-0 with a 2.64 goals against average and a .925 save percentage with Texas. In ten games with Idaho this season, he posted a 4-3-1 mark with a 2.27 goals against average and a .932 save percentage.

The Dallas Stars drafted Beskorowany in the second round (#59 overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. The 6-foot-5, 205-pounder spent the 2009-10 season with the Kingston Frontenacs of the OHL. In 62 appearances, Beskorowany posted a 29-25-4 mark with a 3.52 goals against average and a .903 save percentage. For his OHL career, the Hammer, ONT native went 52-56-17 with a 3.69 goals against average and a .902 save percentage.
