BOISE, ID – Head coach and director of hockey operations Hardy Sauter announced Wednesday that the NHL’s Dallas Stars have re-assigned goaltender Tyler Beskorowany to the Idaho Steelheads.
The Steelheads are the ECHL affiliate of Dallas and the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League.
Beskorowany, who had been playing with the AHL’s Texas Stars, will be in net Wednesday night when the Steelheads take on the Utah Grizzlies at Qwest Arena. In his last six appearances with Texas, Beskorowany was 4-2-0 with a 1.85 goals-against average and a .948 save percentage. The 20 year old opened the season with Idaho, posting a 2.27 goals-against average and .932 save percentage in 10 games before he was called up to Texas in November. All three numbers – goals-against, save percentage and games played – were among the ECHL leaders at the time of his recall.
Beskorowany was a second-round draft choice (59th overall) of Dallas in 2008.
