The Texas Stars continued to build their roster for 2020-21 today with the re-signing of forward Anthony Louis. The 5'7 winger came over from Charlotte in a trade in November with Texas in the midst of a historic skid. Louis was part of the turnaround, immediately slotting into the top six and the power play. He scored 9-11=20 in 38 games with Texas this year.
