Texas Stars Regain Landon Bow in Net Ahead of Big Weekend

The weekend has already started for the Texas Stars with today's matinee game, but the rest of the three-game set will be a little bit easier with Landon Bow back between the pipes.

Bow, who was recalled to Dallas on emergency conditions, did not start any games in Dallas. In relief duty, he was very solid with 1.03 GAA and .947 SV%. Of course, much of that was mop-up work so score effects definitely came into play.

Philippe Desrosiers has played well in Bow's absence but has been leaned on hard. I would expect Bow to start tomorrow's game in Grand Rapids as well as Sunday's back in Chicago.

Here's the release:
Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has reassigned goaltender Landon Bow to the Texas Stars, Dallas' top development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). Additionally, the team has activated goaltender Ben Bishop from Injured Reserve (upper body).

Bow, 23, made his NHL debut for the Stars this season and has appeared in two contests, logging a 1.03 goals against average and a .947 save percentage. In 34 games played for Texas this season, he has produced a record of 18-10-4 with a .902 SV%, a 2.70 GAA and one shutout.

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