Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the team has recalled forward Radek Faksa from the Texas Stars, Dallas' top development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Faksa, 21, has registered two goals (2-0=2) and a +1 plus/minus rating in one game with Texas this season. The forward has tallied 16 points (7-9=16) and 18 penalty minutes in 41 career AHL regular-season games with Texas. Faksa has also appeared in 21 career postseason games with Texas, posting four goals (4-0=4) during Texas' 2014 Calder Cup championship run.
The 6-foot-3, 210-pound native of Vitkov, Czech Republic was originally selected by Dallas in the first round (13th overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft.
Dallas has also placed forward Curtis McKenzie on Injured Reserve with a lower body injury.
