We take another look at the Stars’ prospects in minor league, college, junior and European hockey leagues.


Peters
Texas Stars (AHL):

The Texas Stars returned to the ice Sunday after a full week off, losing on the road to the San Antonio Rampage 4-1. Warren Peters scored the lone goal for Texas on the power play, but the Rampage countered with four unanswered goals. Matt Climie made 28 saves on 32 shots for the Stars, who lost their first game on the road since Nov. 22.

The Stars returned home Tuesday, losing 4-3 in a shootout to the Syracuse Crunch. Peters scored his second goal in as many games, and Andrew Hutchinson added a goal and an assist, but none of the four Texas shooters could find the back of the net in the shootout. Climie made28 saves on 31 shots in regulation and overtime, but dropped to 9-10-2 on the season.

Texas goes back on the road to take on the Manitoba Moose Thursday and Saturday, before coming back to Cedar Park to take on the Houston Aeros Wednesday.

Noteworthy:
Tuesday’s game against Syracuse was the 35th game of the season for Texas, but jus the first against an Eastern Conference team. The Stars will not play any of the other 14 Eastern Conference teams during the regular season, but will play Syracuse again on the road Feb. 17.

Despite their recent struggles, the Stars still lead the West Division at 20-10-5 (45 points). Milwaukee is the closest team to the Stars in the standings with 41 points.

Stars’ goaltender Brent Krahn and defenseman Ivan Vishnevskiy were both selected to play in the 2010 Time Warner Cable All-Star Classic in Portland, Maine on Jan. 18 and 19.

Krahn is 10-2-0 with three shutouts and a 1.41 GAA, and will represent the Canadian All-Star Team in the game. Vishnevskiy has four goals and nine assists (eight on the power play) in 35 games, and will represent the PlanetUSA team, made up of players born outside Canada.

Texas sent goaltender Richard Bachman back to the Idaho Steelheads (ECHL) on Monday. Bachman played in two games for Texas, where he was 1-1-0 with a 2.01 GAA and a .929 save percentage. Bachman has spent the majority of the season in the ECHL with the Steelheads, going 9-2-1. Bachman was voted into the ECHL All-Star game with a 2.12 GAA (first in the ECHL) and a .917 save percentage. The ECHL All-Star Game will be played Jan. 20 in Ontario, Calif.

Idaho Steelheads (ECHL):
The Idaho Steelheads had some tough luck this week as well, losing both of their games on the road. The Steelheads lost to the Utah Grizzlies 5-2 on Saturday, and 3-1 to the Las Vegas Wranglers on Tuesday. Against Las Vegas, Idaho was a perfect 11-for-11 on the penalty kill.

The Steelheads bring in the new year with home games against the Stockton Thunder on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Idaho will play seven of its next nine games at home.

Defensemen Jordie Benn, the brother of Dallas Stars’ left wing Jamie Benn, is playing for the Allen Americans of the Central Hockey League. Benn scored a power-play goal and took five shots Sunday against the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs. Benn now has four goals, four assists, and 41 penalty minutes in 44 games this season.
