CEDAR PARK, TX – The Texas Stars, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Dallas Stars, announced today that Dallas reassigned goalie Tyler Beskorowany to Texas from the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL. Texas also announced that the team has signed left wing Austin Fyten to a professional tryout contract, calling him up from Idaho.
Beskorowany (pronounced behs-kohr-WAH-nee), 22, has appeared in 23 games this season for Idaho, posting a 13-7-3 record with a 2.74 goals-against average, a 0.914 save percentage and one shutout. The Sudbury, Ontario native returns to Texas for the second time this season and has dressed as the Stars’ backup goaltender for two games.
