The Dallas Stars sent forward Jacob Peterson to the Texas Stars this afternoon. This will be Peterson’s first time joining the Texas Stars following his debut for the Dallas Stars earlier this month.
After being drafted by Dallas in the fifth round of the 2017 NHL Draft, Peterson played in Sweden while awaiting a chance to play for the Stars. This year, Peterson was given that chance and debuted in Dallas’s season opener against the New York Rangers on October 14. Peterson scored his first NHL goal and the first goal of the season for Dallas in that game.
The addition of Peterson for Texas should help build momentum at the dawn of this new season as well as give him an ability to gain some more experience playing in the US.
Here is the official press release:
Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today the team has reassigned forward Jacob Peterson to the Texas Stars, Dallas' top development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). Additionally, the team has activated forward Blake Comeau from injured reserve.
Peterson, 22, has skated in all six regular-season contests for Dallas in 2021-22 and has recorded one goal (1-0=1). He made his NHL debut on Oct. 14 against the New York Rangers and scored his first career NHL goal (1-0=1) on his first career shot. The forward has logged an average of 15:10 time on ice per game and has registered eight shots and six hits.
The 6-foot-1, 170-pound native of Lidkoping, Sweden was originally selected by Dallas in the fifth round (132nd overall) of the 2017 NHL Draft.
