Allen York has been released from his professional tryout agreement with the Texas Stars. It's good and bad news. The good news is that if he's being released, Texas has Nilstorp and Campbell healthy. The bad news, of course, is that York had done well for Texas and will probably not be available if needed in case of injury later.

Here's the release:
The Texas Stars, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Dallas Stars, announced today that the team has released goaltender Allen York from his professional tryout contract.

York, 24, signed a PTO with Texas on November 2nd and he made his Stars debut that night with a dazzling 26-save shutout of the Iowa Wild in a 5-0 victory at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines. The Wetaskiwin, Alberta native appeared in six games for Texas, posting a 3-1-1 record with a 2.71 goals-against average, a 0.910 save percentage and one shutout. York began the season by attending the Nashville Predators NHL training camp and then played one game in late October for the AHL's Charlotte Checkers, while on a PTO. He returns to the Evansville IceMen, his ECHL club, where he skated in one game so far this year. York was drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the sixth round (158th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft and has played in 11 career NHL games, all with Columbus, posting a 3-2-0 record with a 2.30 goals-against average and a 0.920 save percentage.


  1. Do not like. Like you said, York was doing well. Doesn't seem Nilstorp is going anywhere, so… Bummer.
