Dallas Stars Place Eric Godard, Six Others on Waivers

TSN is reporting this afternoon that seven Dallas Stars were placed on waivers today. With Texas Stars camp getting ready to start on Tuesday this is the time of year for it and they're expected to make it through no problem, but then there's Eric Godard to consider.

According to TSN Dallas Stars placed the following on waivers Saturday:

DAL - Maxime Fortunus
DAL - Eric Godard
DAL - Brad Lukowich
DAL - Travis Morin
DAL - Raymond Sawada
DAL - Dan Spang
DAL - Francis Wathier

We've been saying all camp that Godard's deal was two way in the first year, so if there was going to be someone muscled out for the 13th/14th forward positions on this team, it could be him. This doesn't mean that he has been. It's early in the preseason still and there is much to be decided, but this will raise eyebrows in the media and have the name Tomas Vincour on the tip of tongues, as he's been very good in the first two preseason games. Just like last year.

Nothing is set in stone. This just gives Dallas options moving forward to round out their lineup how they see fit. We'll find out tomorrow around noon if everyone clears.

Elsewhere former Stars Brandon Segal, Dan Jancevski, Garrett Staford, and Matt Beaudoin were placed on waivers as well.
