The club has also recalled forward Travis Morin from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Texas Stars. Morin, 29, leads the entire AHL with 24 points (10 goals, 14 assists) and has recorded at least one point in 12 of his 13 games with Texas this season.
Whitney, 41, had skated in all 17 games for Dallas and ranks third on the club with seven assists.
You forget how good [Nieuwendyk] was. You hear the points and stuff and you almost forget until they kind of walk you through his career, and that was really cool for me. I might have felt it a little more than some of the other guys because he was one of my favorites growing up, but that was very cool and I'm honored to have been a part of it. I had chills the entire ceremony.
