Stars assign Grossman, Polak and Gagnon to Iowa


DALLAS STARS ASSIGN NIKLAS GROSSMAN,
VOJTECH POLAK AND AARON GAGNON TO IOWA
All Three Players Activated From Injured Reserve, Assigned to Iowa Stars


FRISCO, Tex. – Dallas Stars General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today that the club has activated defenseman Niklas Grossman, center Aaron Gagnon and right wing Vojtech Polak from the injured reserve, and assigned them to the Iowa Stars, Dallas’ primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League. Grossman was on the injured reserve with a shoulder injury, while Polak and Gagnon suffered ankle injuries during the Stars’ training camp last month.

Grossman, 22, skated in eight NHL games for Dallas last season, collecting four penalty minutes. He appeared in 67 games for the Iowa Stars in 2006-07, notching 10 points (two goals, eight assists) and 40 penalty minutes, and his +7 rating was the best on the club. The native of Stockholm, Sweden, added 10 penalty minutes in eight Calder Cup Playoff games with Iowa. 

Dallas’ second round selection (No. 56 overall) in the 2004 Entry Draft, Grossman made his NHL debut on Dec. 2 vs. Minnesota and the Stars finished the season 7-0-1 when he was in the lineup. Grossman skated for Team Sweden at the 2004 and 2005 World Junior Championships.

Polak, 22, has gone scoreless in five career NHL games for Dallas, including two appearances last season. The native of Ostrad nad Ohri, Czech Republic, recorded 45 points (17 goals and 28 assists) and 48 penalty minutes in 67 games with Iowa in 2006-07, and added one goal in seven Calder Cup Playoff games last spring. Polak was originally selected in the second round (No. 38 overall) in the 2003 Entry Draft. 

Gagnon, 21, is looking to make his professional debut after a stellar career with the Seattle Thunderbirds in the Western Hockey League. Signed as a free agent by Dallas on Feb. 2, 2007, the native of Armstrong, B.C., ranked second in the WHL in goals (42) and led Seattle in goals and points (80) last season. He was named a First-Team All-WHL All-Star and won the Brad Hornung Trophy as the league’s most sportsmanlike player. Gagnon was originally selected by Phoenix in the eighth round (No. 240 overall) in the 2004 Entry Draft.
