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.
It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional.

I'm going to be really happy.
