It's also a great sign that Desrosiers was able to stick around for a few extra days in Austin to get some practice reps with the Texas Stars and more time with goalie coach Jim Bedard. He didn't do anything wrong to be sent down. Right now it's just a numbers game.
Here's the release:
The Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, announced Wednesday rookie goaltender Phil Desrosiers has been reassigned to the team’s ECHL affiliate, the Idaho Steelheads.
Desrosiers, 22, is 17-6-2 with Idaho this season with a 2.74 goals against average and a .907 save percentage. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound netminder made his AHL season debut and stopped 23 of 24 shots in a 5-1 win over the San Antonio Rampage last Saturday.
Desrosiers (deh-ROH-see-ay) was a second-round pick of Dallas in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
