Stars recall Oleksiak, Roussel from Texas Stars, send Reilly Smith to AHL team

FRISCO, Texas - The Dallas Stars have recalled defenceman Jamie Oleksiak and forward Antoine Roussel from the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League.

Dallas also Wednesday assigned Reilly Smith to Texas.

The 6-foot-7 Oleksiak, a first-round pick in 2011, has 23 points (three goals, 20 assists) in 43 games for the Texas Stars and was an AHL All-Star this season. Roussel has eight goals and 11 assists and leads Texas with 103 penalty minutes.

Smith has gone scoreless in six games for Dallas and is still looking for his first career NHL point. He had 11 goals and 14 in 37 games for Texas this season.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
