Friday Practice Notes

The Dallas Stars wrapped up six days of practices Friday morning, and now it is on to opening night against the Phoenix Coyotes at American Airlines Center on Saturday night.

The Stars trimmed their roster to 23 players Friday morning, sending goaltender Richard Bachman and defenseman Jamie Oleksiak to the Texas Stars of the AHL.

That means Cristopher Nilstorp will start the season as the backup to Kari Lehtonen.

“It’s that same thought process we had before, (Nilstorp) has played 30 games,” Stars coach Glen Gulutzan said. “If you look at Richard Bachman throughout this camp, he was fantastic. There’s no reading anything into it other than we felt that instead of throwing two goalies that haven’t played a game into the fire, it’s better to have one of them get a couple of games in. That’s what Bachs is going to do. He’s going to go down and get a couple of games in, and you’ll probably see Nilstorp get a start in one of these first three games. We feel he’s played well enough to earn a start.”
