Boise, ID – Idaho Steelheads head coach and director of hockey operations Hardy Sauter announced Thursday afternoon that rookie goaltender Tyler Beskorowany has been recalled by the American Hockey League’s Texas Stars.
The Steelheads are the ECHL affiliate of Texas and the Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League.
Beskorowany, 20, is among the ECHL leaders in games played (10), minutes played (582), total saves (303), goals-against average (2.27), and save percentage (.932). In those ten games, he has already posted two of the top ten single-game ECHL save totals for the Steelheads, stopping 44 shots at Alaska on October 22 and 43 shots on November 10 against Stockton.
The Hanmer, Ontario, native joins Texas in time for a three-game in three-night stretch this weekend. The Stars are in Oklahoma City Friday night, home against Milwaukee Saturday, and then at Houston on Sunday.
