In an unrelated move, the Texas Stars released rookie PTO forward Eric Faille. Faille had 2-4=6 in 21 games with Texas this season but was scratched the past two games. With the arrival of Devin Shore, Faille just gets squeezed out on the numbers game. I personally think he'll pick up some PTO games elsewhere out East in the AHL in the final month of the season.
Here is the release on Oleksiak:
Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has reassigned defenseman Jamie Oleksiak to the Texas Stars, Dallas' top development affiliate in the American Hockey League.
Oleksiak, 22, has appeared in 36 games for Dallas this season posting eight points (1-7=8) and eight penalty minutes. He has also appeared in 19 games for Texas this season and registering 11 points (3-8=11) and a team-leading +11 plus/minus rating.
The 6-foot-7, 250-pound native of Toronto, Ontario was selected by Dallas in the first round (14th overall) of the 2011 NHL Draft.
