The Stars announced this morning that they're recalling Texas Stars forward Francis Wathier to provide insurance for a slightly ailing roster. Petersen and Barch are out and now ESPN Dallas says Steve Ott is "dinged up" as well, but did participate in morning skate today. Before Wathier, they only had 12 eligible forwards on the trip. Wathier, 25, has played in 23 games for Texas so far this season, ranking second on the team in goals (eight) and tied for third in points (11). With Lehtonen battling illness last week and Trevor Daley apparently having similar problems over the weekend, one wonders if there's just a smattering of colds and/or flu going through the locker room. That's uniformed/ignorant conjecture on my part, FYI.
