Elsewhere, some former Stars have found new employers; others are still looking. Richard Bachman will be heading to the Edmonton Oilers organization, where he will likely visit the Cedar Park Center frequently as the #1 for the Oklahoma City Barons. He was a steady hand for Texas in the AHL but faltered in the NHL. Philip Larsen is also on the way to the Oilers, likely to make the NHL roster, as the return in the Shawn Horcoff trade.
Likely former Stars captain Maxime Fortunus has announced that he is going to be testing free agency and is still looking for a home. UFAs Carl Sneep and Tyler Sloan are also still seeking employment. Tyler Beskorowany, Jace Coyle and Mathieu Tousignant, all RFAs that did not receive qualifying offers, are all still in the available talent pool.
In other news, the Texas Stars will not be seeing Valeri Nichushkin this year according to an interview that Mark Stepneski did with his agent Monday. Either the young winger will play in the NHL for Dallas or head back to the KHL to play for Dynamo.
