Defenseman John Nyberg is the newest face at #txstars practice today. Texas will start with the D group they won with in Ontario, but Nyberg will travel and could play if they are looking for a change.— 100 Degree Hockey (@100degreehockey) April 28, 2018
Here's the release:
The Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, announced Monday the team has added rookie defenseman John Nyberg on an amateur tryout agreement for the remainder of the postseason.
Nyberg, 21, has been competing in Sweden for the previous four seasons. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound native of Lundy, Sweden has appeared in 101 games over the past two years for Frolunda, tallying 28 points (9-19=28). Nyberg (NIGH-behrg) signed a three-year, entry-level agreement with the Dallas Stars on May 8, 2017.
He was selected in the sixth round by Dallas (165th overall) in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
