Frisco, Tex. -
The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has assigned goaltender Matt Climie back to the AHL Texas Stars. He was recalled on Friday on emergency conditions. Dallas goaltender Marty Turco had flu-like symptoms and was not with the team for the last two games -- a step being taken as a precautionary measure to safeguard Turco's welfare and that of the team. Climie was on the bench for Dallas and did not see game action.
Climie, 26, has appeared in five games for Texas, going 2-1-2 with a goals-against-average (GAA) of 1.35 and a save percentage of .954. He stopped all 25 shots he faced on Oct. 15 vs. Grand Rapids, earning the first shutout in Texas Stars history and his first at the AHL level. Climie made his NHL debut at the end of last season, appearing in three games for Dallas with a record of 2-1-0 and a 2.92 GAA.
The 6-3, 205-pound native of Luduc, Alta., signed as a free agent with Dallas on March 20, 2008.
