DALLAS - The Dallas Stars have sent young defenceman Ivan Vishnevskiy back to the minor leagues.

The 21-year-old Russian was assigned to the Texas Stars of the AHL on Wednesday, two days after he gave a goal to San Jose when he lost control of the puck and it slid into an empty net.

Vishnevskiy recorded 17 minutes 32 seconds of ice time against the Sharks in his second NHL game this season. He has four goals and nine assists in 33 games with the Texas Stars.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
