Report: Texas Stars Add ATO Forward Derek Hulak

According to Colby Pridham of SportsNet in Canada, the Texas Stars will be adding Derek Hulak of the University of Saskatechewan on an amateur tryout agreement.

Hulak's Huskies just lost in the University Cup finals to Alberta. Pridham wrote about Hulak as a player to watch in the tournament before the weekend.

"For the second time in three seasons, Huskies forward Derek Hulak has led the Canada West conference in scoring. This year, the dynamic Hulak registered 48 points earning him a selection as a CIS First Team All Star. A solid gritty player, Hulak anchors the point on the Huskies’ power play.

Last year, the Huskies fell short as hosts, and he only recorded a single point. The concerning issue this time that the Huskies have not played since Feb. 23rd when they lost to UBC in the quarterfinals of the Canada West playoffs. In their second and final time hosting the University Cup, he and his teammates will be looking for a much different ending, and Hulak will be expected to lead the charge."

Hulak spent four years with the Saskatoon Blades, former team of current Star Matej Stransky, before heading to college. In 2010-11, he even put in 21 games in the CHL with Tulsa.

No confirmation yet from the Stars.
