Texas travels to Houston on February 4th at 7:35 PM

The Dallas Stars announced on Monday that the club has recalled centers Aaron Gagnon and Travis Morin from the Texas Stars, Dallas’ primary affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). In a separate move, the Texas Stars assigned goalie Adrien LeMay to the Allen Americans of the Central Hockey League (CHL), Texas’ CHL affiliate.

Gagnon, 24, has appeared in nine games for Dallas this season, recording two assists, including his first NHL point (Dec. 6 at Columbus). The 5-11, 186-pound center has spent the majority of this season with Texas, skating in 35 games and collecting 18 points (11g, 7a). Gagnon led the Texas Stars in scoring during the 2009-10 season with 58 points (27g, 31a). The Quesnel, British Columbia, native was signed by Dallas as a free agent on Feb. 2, 2007.

Morin, 27, made his NHL debut against Edmonton in a 3-1 win Jan. 26, recording 10:07 minutes of time on ice. He has recorded 34 points (13g, 21a) in 47 games this season for Texas. The 6-2, 195-pound center played 80 games last season for Texas, finishing second on the team in scoring with 52 points (21g, 31a). Morin was signed as a free agent on July 12, 2010 and was originally selected in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft (ninth round, 263rd overall) by the Washington Capitals.

LeMay returns to Allen after his third AHL recall this season. The rookie netminder dressed, but has not made an appearance for Texas this season. In 17 games for the Americans this year, LeMay is 11-2-0 with a 3.10 goals against average and a .897 save percentage.
