Eric Godard, Colton Sceviour, Five Others Assigned To Texas Stars

The Dallas Stars have made a significant roster move today as they get closer to the 23-player NHL roster in preparation for the start of the season on Friday.

With Tomas Vincour showing great improvement over last season and being one of the more impressive players in camp, it appears as if he's going to get the chance to start the season on the NHL roster. The Stars assigned Eric Godard and Colton Sceviour, and five others, to the Texas Stars today -- leaving 25 players on the roster.

Players assigned to Texas:

G Richard Bachman
D Maxime Fortunus
F Eric Godard
F Travis Morin
F Ray Sawada
F Colton Sceviour
F Francis Wathier

The two extra spots right now on the roster are taken by Philip Larsen and Scott Glennie. It's likely that Larsen will be with the NHL team until midway through the week and Glennie cannot be sent to the AHL until he is medically cleared from his concussion.

For now, it seems that Vincour is going to get the chance to make a big impression early in the season with the Stars. Whether he's just a fourth line option or more, we'll find out on Friday. There's also the chance that Larsen is going to get a good look at possibly starting the season with Dallas, although I doubt that happens right away.
