In a move more closely related to the return of Julius Honka, defenseman Connor Hardowa was also released from his professional tryout.
Here's the release:
The Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, announced today forward Travis Morin has been reassigned to the team from the NHL and defenseman Connor Hardowa has been released from his Professional Tryout Agreement.
Morin, 29, appeared in five games for Dallas during his most recent NHL call up, tallying one assist. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound native of Brooklyn Park, Minn. was leading Texas in goals (10), assists (14), and points (24) before he was called up. Morin is the reigning AHL Most Valuable Player after tallying 88 points last year.
Morin was a ninth-round pick (263rd overall) of the Washington Capitals in 2004.
Hardowa, 26, appeared in five games this season for the Stars. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound defenseman appeared in 19 games this season for the ECHL’s Utah Grizzlies before signing a tryout agreement with the Stars.
