UPDATED: Brock Montgomery to Idaho.

The Dallas Stars have taken forward Scott Glennie off injured reserve and assigned him to the Texas Stars this afternoon. Glennie was having a really good preseason until injury struck and the highly-drafted winger went on IR for several weeks. Glennie recouped his injury in Cedar Park over the past few weeks, skating after the team with trainers to stay in game shape.

Even for a team with an already healthy and stable set at forward, Glennie will certainly be placed in the lineup at the expense of another. Many speculated he could have made the roster in Dallas if not for his injury. Now I would guess that he finds a spot with Chris Mueller on the 'third' line. There is also some small outside shot that Hedden and Dowling see Glennie as their third. That worked well at the end of last year before Ritchie arrived and after Chiasson departed.

In a related move, the Texas Stars have announced they are sending rookie forward Brock Montgomery to the Idaho Steelheads. Montgomery has only figured into three games this season.
