Francis Wathier Recalled - Perttu Lindgren Assigned to Austin

Quote:
Wathier, 24, is an enforcer type, and a heavier winger (6-3, 208). He's among the thousand of left-shot players the Stars have, but he's been a good AHL soldier and will play a simple game going up and down the wing. He had 6 goals and 10 assists with 127 penalty minutes in 77 games for Iowa (AHL) last season.

He fits perfectly on the fourth line and allows the Stars to use more experienced players up the lineup if Richards (groin) can't play. If Richards can play, Wathier could step in where Mark Fistric has been on the wing and allow Fistric to move back to D.

Why not play him at forward, seems the thing to do.

Good news for Barch, he may not be the least talented guy on the team anymore.

On NHL Live they said this move was because both Modono and Jiri Lehtenon have been placed on the IR.

Both are likely on 7-day IR retroactive to the date of their injuries, which allows the Stars more roster space if they so need it. If that's so, they're eligible to come off whenever they're healthy.

Does Wathier will play tonight? I've seen him played 4 years at Gatineau and won 2 cups, so I'm very happy to know that he'll finally get a chance!

He played, and I thought he actually looked pretty good. He’s obviously a better fighter than the spare Dallas is going with now, and he didn't make any obvious mistakes in his role as a grinder. However, I'd bet the team is still skeptical about his ability to stay healthy. They don't really need another AHLer on IR in Dallas. Plus, I doubt he gets this opportunity if Sawada, Gazdic, and Peters were healthy.

From Mark @ Andrew's:

Quote:
A lot of players stood out, but I think Francis Wathier deserves a mention. He played a strong game as did his line with Brian Sutherby and Krys Barch. That trio had some good shifts and Wathier was noticeable out there in a positive way. He had a couple of good chances and got in a scrap. Won his only faceoff of the game too. It was a very solid debut for him. Good to see. He’s a great guy who’s worked hard and overcome some tough injury issues to make it to the NHL.

3 shots and 1 fight in 6 minutes of play, that's not bad!

Wathier went from QMJHL walk-on to playing in the NHL (regardless of how short the time), that's pretty remarkable...the smart money was on him not playing an NHL game in his career as of a couple years ago, well done Francis...

Relating to the thread title, but not so much the discussion - I'm pretty surprised that Perttu Lindgren came back to North America...

Why? The only reason he was in Europe last year was Dallas' lack of an AHL affiliate. That's the reason Wandell was in Europe as well.

Wathier was just sent back to Austin.

Wouldn't mind seeing him again (though please, let the reason be an injury to Barch or something, not Richards).

I just figured there was kind of mutual surrendering of sorts...Lindgren was already home, he was sliding down the proverbial depth chart in the organization, I just figured that'd be pretty much it...

Lindgren is the type of player that might make a better living in Europe anyhow...but we'll see how he continues to develop as he re-adjusts to the North American game...
