The Texas Stars have recalled Taylor Vause from the Idaho Steelheads to join the team on their trip to Chicago this weekend. Texas was riding with 13 forwards before the recall but Cody Eakin is potentially out for Dallas Friday night. Dallas is only carrying 12 forwards, necessitating a recall to fill out the needed 18 skaters. Although that recall hasn't happened yet, Texas is setting up for the potential dominoes of it as they head out on the road.

Here's the release:
The Texas Stars, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Dallas Stars, announced today that the club has recalled center Taylor Vause from loan to the Idaho Steelheads, the team’s ECHL affiliate.

Vause, 23, recovered from a long-term injury and was sent back to Idaho on March 5th, where he scored points in each of the four games he played for the Steelheads, piling up six points (4 goals, 2 assists) during that span. The Calgary, Alberta native has appeared in 12 games for Texas this season, recording two points (1 goal, 1 assist) and two penalty minutes. Vause has played in 21 ECHL games for Idaho this season, scoring 15 points (10 goals, 5 assists) and recording 10 penalty minutes. The second year forward has played in 72 career AHL games, all with the Stars, and has 21 points (6 goals, 15 assists) and eight penalty minutes.
