On the Farm Report: 1-14-10

We take another look at the Stars’ prospects in minor league, college, junior and European hockey leagues.

Texas Stars (AHL):
Korostin

The Texas Stars travelled to British Columbia over the weekend for a two game series against the Abbotsford Heat. Friday, Maxime Fortunus scored his fifth goal of the season and Matt Climie made 31 saves, but it was not enough for the Stars, who lost 3-1.

In Saturday’s rematch with the Heat, Texas allowed a goal 21 seconds into the game but rallied back to tie the game at 2-2.  The Stars surrendered two goals in the final frame, losing 4-2. Climie faced 40 shots in the game, including 32 in the second and third periods. The loss was Texas’ seventh in its last eight games.

Texas snapped its slump on Tuesday with a 2-0 win over the San Antonio Rampage. Recently signed goalie Todd Ford made 36 saves, including 17 in the third period, for his first AHL shutout. Ivan Vishnevskiy scored a power-play goal in the first period, and Sergei Korostin added an insurance goal in the third. Garrett Stafford assisted on both goals as the Stars improved to 22-13-6.

The Stars host the Toronto Marlies on Friday before going six days without a game.

State Farm named title sponsor of Lone Star Faceoff:

Tuesday, the Texas Stars announced that State Farm is the new title sponsor of the Lone Star Faceoff, the name given to the regular-season matchups between the three AHL teams in Texas – The Texas Stars, Houston Aeros and the San Antonio Rampage. As part of the deal, six games of the rivalry (including three Texas Stars’ games) will be broadcast on FSN in the Dallas area.

FSN Broadcast Schedule:

Texas at Houston on Saturday, Feb. 27 at 7:35 PM
San Antonio at Texas on Sunday, Feb. 28 at 5:00 PM
Houston at San Antonio on Wednesday, Mar. 3 at 7:00 PM
San Antonio at Houston on Friday, Mar. 5 at 7:35 PM
Houston at Texas on Saturday, Apr. 3 at 7:00 PM
Houston at San Antonio on Thursday, Apr. 8, 7:00 PM

Noteworthy:

Texas' record of 22-13-6 is good for 50 points and is tied with the Milwaukee Admirals for first in the West Division. The Stars’ next game against Milwaukee is Jan. 26 in Cedar Park.

Friday, Texas recalled left wing Michael Neal, the younger brother of Dallas Stars’ left wing James Neal, from the Idaho Steelheads (ECHL). Neal went scoreless in his one game call-up with Texas, with one shot and two penalty minutes. Monday, Texas returned Neal to Idaho, where he has spent the majority of the season.

On Monday, the Texas Stars also recalled right wing Sergei Korostin from Idaho. In his four games with the Steelheads, Korostin scored four goals, two assists, and had a +4 rating.

Idaho Steelheads (ECHL):
The Idaho Steelheads split their weekend series with the Victoria Salmon Kings, losing 5-2 on Friday and winning Saturday’s tilt 8-2. Wednesday, Idaho outshot the Utah Grizzlies 41-16 and rallied from a two-goal deficit for a 4-3 overtime win.

The Steelheads do not have any games this week, as the ECHL takes a break from its regular season schedule for its annual All-Star Game. This year’s game is being played on Jan. 20 in Ontario, Calif., and four Steelheads will participate, including Stars’ goaltending prospect Richard Bachman. Idaho head coach Derek Laxdal will lead the National Conference squad.

Elsewhere:

Right Wing Tomas Vincour, the Stars’ fifth round pick (129th overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, was traded Sunday from the Edmonton Oil Kings to the Vancouver Giants, both of the Western Hockey League, one of Canada’s major junior leagues, so that he could play in this year’s WHL playoffs.

The trade has no impact on Vincour’s status within the Dallas Stars’ organization, but the opportunity to play this postseason at the junior level should provide him with valuable experience, furthering his development. Edmonton is in last place in the Eastern Conference, while Vancouver currently sits in second place in the West. Vincour had 17 goals and nine assists in 33 games with Edmonton this season.

Defensemen Jordie Benn, the brother of Dallas Stars’ left wing Jamie Benn, plays for the Allen Americans of the Central Hockey League. Benn did not score in any of Allen’s two games this week, a 3-0 loss to the Texas Brahmas and a 4-3 win against the Mississippi RiverKings. This season, Benn has four goals, four assists and 51 penalty minutes in 27 games with Allen.
