Following his All-Star Game appearance in the AHL, Denis Gurianov has been recalled to the Dallas Stars. He's likely to slot in on the fourth line with the also recently-recalled Roope Hintz.

If everything goes to plan, I feel like this should be the last time either player is recalled to Dallas. That's because they'll stick. The speed that both bring to the lineup is important for the NHL club's success.

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

Gurianov, 21, has skated in 33 AHL contests with Texas so far in 2018-19, registering 34 points (13-21=34). Among team leaders, he ranks third in assists (21) and fourth in points (34) and goals (13). In 12 NHL games with Dallas this season, he has posted three points (1-2=3) and an average 11:19 of ice time.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound native of Togliatti, Russia was originally selected by Dallas in the first round (12th overall) of the 2015 NHL Draft.
