The Texas Stars announced today that they have signed Philippe Desrosiers to an amateur tryout. The Dallas-drafted goalie was on an ATO with Texas earlier this postseason following the end of the QMJHL season. When the Idaho Steelheads season ended and Josh Robinson was recalled, Desrosiers was released. With Jack Campbell not making the trip to Toronto, Texas is looking for a reliable third goaltender who can work with other black ace players. Desrosiers fits the bill.

Desrosiers has not dressed for any games in his pro career.

Here's the release:
The Texas Stars, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Dallas Stars, announced today that the club has signed goaltender Philippe Desrosiers to an amateur tryout contract (ATO).

Desrosiers, 18, originally signed an ATO with Texas on April 22nd, but did not appear in any action and was released on May 14th. He recently concluded his third season with Rimouski Oceanic of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL). During the 2013-14 season, he posted the fourth-lowest goals against average in the QMJHL (2.65), was tied for the sixth-highest save percentage (.907) ranked fifth in overall wins with a 31-14-7 record and was one of only six goalies in the league to post at least five shutouts (5). The native of Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec also earned a 7-2-1 record with a 2.34 GAA and a .917 SV% in 11 playoff contests in 2014. Desrosiers was drafted by Dallas in the second round (54th overall) in the 2013 NHL Draft.
