In a move that surprises precisely no one, the Dallas Stars announced this morning that they have recalled Landon Bow to the NHL. Late in last night's game in Calgary, Dallas starter Ben Bishop was injured, necessitating the recall.

Dallas plays tonight in Edmonton, so Bow will make quick work of a long travel day to get there by puck drop.

With two games this weekend for Texas, the recall increases the likelihood that ATO Jake Oettinger makes his pro debut in Iowa. Even before the recall, Coach Laxdal indicated he "wouldn't rule out" a start for Oettinger. Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reported last night that Oettinger's parents are en route to Des Moines, so read into that what you will.

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, 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 46 games played for Texas this season, he owns a record of 24-15-5 with a .893 SV%, a 2.89 GAA and one shutout. Bow ranks sixth in the AHL with 24 wins in 2018-19.

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.
