Stars Debut: October 2, 2009 at San Antonio
Stars Career Stats: 294 GP, 177 Points (67 Goals, 110 Assists), 81 PIMs
In numerical order, right wing Colton Sceviour is the first forward to appear. The Red Deer, Alberta native is the only player in Stars history to wear the No. 7 jersey and one of just seven players still in the Original Stars group, which consists of players who have been with Texas since its inception in 2009-10.
Sceviour was drafted by Dallas in fourth round (112th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. He played five years of major junior hockey for the Portland Winter Hawks and the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the WHL, before joining the Texas Stars for the inaugural 2009-10 season. Sceviour made his pro and AHL debut with the Stars on October 2, 2009 and didn’t miss a single game that year, playing all 80 regular season games and 24 Calder Cup Playoff games; he and Travis Morin are tied for the franchise record for most games played in a single season (104). Having played for Texas for all four years, he made his NHL debut with Dallas on February 5, 2011 at Philadelphia. This past season he played in his second career NHL game and tallied an assist for his first NHL point on January 26, 2013 vs. St. Louis. Sceviour suffered a broken hand during the first period of the first preseason game and missed the first month of the 2012-13 season. In spite of not playing in the team’s first seven games of the year, he led the team in points (52), shorthanded goals (4), game-winning goals (4) and shots (207) and set a new Stars single-season record for plus-minus (+21). Sceviour’s four shorthanded goals this past year doubled his career total and it was the second most in the entire AHL; Binghamton’s Derek Grant finished with five.
Sceviour’s 52 points last year was the seventh time a Texas player has surpassed the 50-point mark in a single season. He joined Travis Morin (2009-10, 2011-12) as the only two Stars to reach 50+ points twice and he is the only player in team history to accomplish the feat in consecutive seasons.
Sceviour is the Texas Stars franchise leader in all-time games played (294), plus-minus (+28), shorthanded goals (8), game-winning goals (16), shots (733), shootout goals (12) and shootout attempts (28). He ranks second all-time in points (177), assists (110) and power play assists (42) and is tied for second in goals (67). He is one of three players to appear in all 39 Calder Cup Playoff games in Texas Stars history.
