In other news, John Nyberg has been assigned to the Idaho Steelheads. It's his first ECHL assignment. He has 1-4=5 in 27 games with Texas. He has struggled to make a mark on the lineup, bouncing in and out as a healthy scratch at times and not scoring his first AHL goal until late December. The assignment should give him a chance to play solid top pair minutes and establish himself better in the North American game.
