Texas Stars Add Forward James Phelan on AHL Deal

The Texas Stars announced another AHL deal today with forward James Phelan officially joining the fold. Phelan's signing was announced by his QMJHL team back in April, but the Texas Stars would not confirm the signing at that time.

Here's the release:
The Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, announced Thursday the team has signed rookie forward James Phelan for the upcoming 2018-19 season.

Phelan (FEE-lan), 21, begins his pro career after spending the previous five years in the QMJHL. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound forward tallied 191 points (86-105=191) in 321 career games played between the Shawinigan Cataractres (2013-2016), Victoriaville Tigres (2016-17) and Moncton Wildcats (2017-18).

The Laval, Quebec native also competed in Development Camp with the Dallas Stars earlier this summer.
