On the Farm Report: 2-4-10

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

Texas Stars (AHL):

Wathier
The Texas Stars scored six goals for the first time in team history on Friday, beating the Abbotsford Heat 6-1. The five-goal margin of victory was Texas’ largest this season. Garrett Stafford scored his fourth and fifth goals of the season, Francis Wathier scored a power-play goal and two assists, Aaron Gagnon scored a goal and an assist, and Ivan Vishnevskiy also added two assists. Matt Climie made 36 saves on 37 shots, stopping all 15 Abbotsford shots in the third period. Luke Gazdic earned three fighting majors, and Wathier dropped the gloves once as well.

The Stars beat Abbotsford again on Saturday, this time 4-2, for their sixth straight home win. Wathier’s 11th goal of the season turned out to be the game-winner, and Maxime Fortunus scored his ninth goal of the season. Climie made 34 saves on 36 shots, improving to 13-13-3.

The Stars traveled to Peoria on Sunday to play their third game in as many days, beating the Rivermen 2-1 in a shootout. With the win, Texas increased its winning streak to five and moved back into first place in the West Division. Each team scored one goal in the first period before going scoreless the rest of the game. In the shootout, Vishnevskiy, Colton Sceviour and Perttu Lindgren scored to give the Stars the extra point.

The Stars lost Tuesday’s game against the Milwaukee Admirals 5-1, snapping their five-game winning streak and eight-game point streak. In the third period, Gagnon scored Texas’ lone goal, his 11th tally of the season. Stafford and Raymond Sawada assisted on the goal, but it was not enough for Milwaukee, who stayed within one point of Texas in the standings with the win.

Texas begins a five-game home stand Friday and Saturday with a pair of games against Peoria, followed by a visit on Tuesday from the Grand Rapids Griffins.

Noteworthy:

Texas and the Rockford IceHogs are tied with 63 points atop the West Division standings, but the Stars have the higher points percentage, having played four fewer games. Texas (28-14-7, .643 points percentage) leads the division, while Rockford (29-19-5, .594 points percentage) is in second place.

While Texas ranks ninth in the Western Conference with 141 goals scored, its 113 goals against are second in the league (Hamilton - 112).

Thanks in part to his 25 penalty minutes in Friday’s game against Abbotsford, Gazdic leads the Stars with 94 penalty minutes. Wathier is second on the club with 64.

Idaho Steelheads (ECHL):
The Idaho Steelheads also had a successful and busy week, winning all three games they played on the road in a three-day span. The Steelheads defeated the Bakersfield Condors 6-3 on Friday and 3-2 on Saturday, before beating the Ontario Reign 5-2 on Sunday to maintain their position atop the National Conference.

On Sunday, Idaho became the second team in the ECHL to reach its 30th win (South Carolina Stingrays). At 30-11-2, the Steelheads have the highest points percentage in the league (.721).

Elsewhere:

Scott Glennie, Dallas’ 1st round (8th overall) pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, had another great week for his junior club, the Brandon Wheat Kings (WHL). Glennie had two unassisted goals and an assist in a six minute span on Friday against the Calgary Hitmen, and was named the game’s first star. He followed that performance up with two assists and a fight in Tuesday’s game against the Red Deer Rebels. Glennie, now with 22 goals and 40 assists in 50 games this season, was a finalist for the WHL Player of the Week and Player of the Month awards. Glennie has 16 points (6-10-16) in his last six games, and is riding a seven-game point streak overall.

Defensemen Jordie Benn, the brother of Dallas Stars’ left wing Jamie Benn, plays for the Allen Americans of the Central Hockey League. Benn scored a goal and an assist in Friday’s game against the Corpus Christi IceRays. Benn now has seven goals and eight assists in 36 games with Allen.
