Dallas Stars Assign Francis Wathier to the Texas Stars.

The Dallas Stars have announced that Francis Wathier has been assigned to the Dallas Stars. From the press release:

Frisco, Tex. – The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has assigned left wing Francis Wathier to the Texas Stars - Dallas' primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

Wather, 24, was recalled from Texas on Oct. 20 and made his NHL debut on Oct. 21 at Anaheim with three shots on net and five penalty minutes. He has appeared in six games for Texas this season, picking up two assists with a +2 rating and two penalty minutes. The 6-4, 208-pound left wing spent the 2008-09 season with the Iowa Chops (AHL), where he gathered six goals and 10 assists with 127 penalty minutes in 77 contests. Wathier was Dallas’ sixth round selection (185th overall) in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

With Mike Modano, Jere Lehtinen and Matt Niskanen all fighting injuries, it will be interesting to see what happens. Either one of the three returns tomorrow night to the ice, or the Stars call up yet another forward.

Overall I was impressed with Wathier. His line provided good energy and attitude, something that had been missing from the Stars for most of the season.
