Texas assigned forward Max French and defenseman Shane Hanna to the ECHL this afternoon. The Steelheads are in camp now with their first preseason game slated for Friday. While there isn't a roster limit in the AHL, Texas still has more cuts to make in order to put themselves closer to the usual 23-24 player roster construction.

The big question that still lingers is which of Landon Bow or Philippe Desrosiers will win the backup job out of camp. No indication has been given either way, and the two had identical stats in the preseason, each allowing two goals on eight shots in 30 minutes of work.
