Texas Stars Recall Zack Kamrass

The Texas Stars told Zack Kamrass they were just kidding about assigning him to the Steelheads earlier this week and recalled the rookie defenseman for this weekend's games. While in Idaho, he did not play any games.

In an unrelated move in the ECHL, the Steelheads acquired G Branden Komm from the South Carolina Stingrays. In return, Texas reassigned forward Brandon Magee to South Carolina.

Here's the release:
The Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, announced Thursday they have recalled rookie defenseman Zack Kamrass from their ECHL affiliate, the Idaho Steelheads.

Kamrass, 25, made his AHL debut on Jan. 15 in Texas’ 4-2 win at Bakersfield. He has appeared in 37 ECHL games this season for Idaho with 16 points (3-13=16). The 5-foot-11, 190-pound native of Atlanta, Ga. is currently in his first full professional season after finishing a four-year career at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell (NCAA) from 2011-2015.
