With Ben Bishop leaving last night's game in New York in the second period, the Dallas Stars need another keeper before tomorrow's tilt in Pittsburgh. Thus, the recall came this afternoon for second-year man Landon Bow. This is Bow's second NHL recall overall. It leaves the Texas Stars with Colton Point and Philippe Desrosiers as they approach a three-in-three weekend where they will definitely have to use both goalies.

With Dallas playing three games in four nights themselves, the Bow recall also sets up a chance at a Landon Bow v. Mike McKenna game in the NHL on Friday.

Here's the release:
Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has recalled goaltender Landon Bow from the Texas Stars, Dallas' top development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

Bow, 23, has appeared in 12 AHL games with Texas so far this season, logging a 6-3-1 record. The netminder holds a 2.81 goals against average and a .896 save percentage so far in 2018-19. Bow has amassed a 33-25-11 record with a 2.92 GAA, a .900 SV% and one shutout in 74 career AHL regular-season games.

The 6-foot-5, 210-pound native of St. Albert, Alberta was originally signed as an undrafted free agent on March 10, 2017.

In a related move, the Dallas Stars have placed center Devin Shore on Injured Reserve (lower body injury), retroactive to Nov. 12.
