Mike Dalhuisen was reassigned to the Idaho Steelheads today by the Texas Stars. Dalhuisen spent much of his recent stay with the Stars in a 12th forward role on the fourth line. He was in and out of the lineup, often brought in against teams like OKC to battle Travis Ewanyk when things got rough.

The move is a good hint that Texas is getting healthier. The Stars got Curtis McKenzie back in good health this weekend and look like they will regain Justin Dowling tomorrow. Branden Troock did not practice Monday but was in Cedar Park and not in any sort of cast or walking boot. Radek Faksa will be out for a while after undergoing shoulder surgery late last week though.

Yesterday, it was unclear if Texas might lose a forward or two to Dallas. Jamie Benn, Vernon Fiddler and Tyler Seguin all missed practice with various maladies. All three returned to morning skate today, so it looks like Texas will keep their current set of forwards for today.
