• Stars Send Morin To AHL

    News: The Stars assigned Travis Morin to AHL Texas on Sunday, the team's official site reports.
    Analysis: The 31-year-old forward has yet to record a point in six games with the big club to date this season. Travis Morin returns to Texas as the team's leading scorer, with 40 points in 39 AHL contests.
  • Stars Bring Up Morin From Minors

    News: Travis Morin was recalled from AHL Texas on Saturday, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
    Analysis: The Stars will be without Tyler Seguin (lower body) for at least the next three games after he was placed on injured reserve, so Travis Morin was added to the 23-man roster to provide the team with four healthy centers. Morin has been sensational at the AHL level the last couple of seasons, and had ranked ninth in the league in scoring with 40 points in 39 games prior to his call-up. However, the 31-year-old has thus far failed to make much of an imprint during his time with the Stars, managing only one point over his 12 career NHL contests.

    Analysis: Travis Morin was sent to AHL Texas in early January to receive extra playing time, but will remain under contract for two more seasons. The 31-year-old center has 31 points (14 goals, 17 assists) in 30 games with the AHL club this season, and won the award for the AHL's top player last season after posting 88 points in 66 games. He has played in just five games with Dallas this season, but will continue to give the team depth should injuries occur.
  • Stars' Morin Sent To AHL Texas

    News: Travis Morin was assigned to AHL Texas on Monday.
    Analysis: The 30-year-old has only made five appearances for the Stars this season and will head down to the AHL to get more consistent playing time. He's already played in 23 games for AHL Texas this season and is currently leading the team with 24 points. Despite the demotion, it would be surprising if Travis Morin wasn't recalled by the Stars at some future point in the year.
  • Morin Likely To Suit Up For Stars

    News: Travis Morin is expected to play for the Stars on Saturday, according to the Dallas Morning News.

    News: The Stars recalled Travis Morin from AHL Texas on Thursday.
    Analysis: Since the 2010-11 season, Travis Morin has played seven games at the NHL level, recording an assist and six shots.

  • Stars' Morin Clears Waivers

    News: Travis Morin cleared waivers on Thursday and will stay with the Stars, according to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News.
    Analysis: Travis Morin was the AHL MVP last season, but the team has opted to send him down to the AHL before the start of the season. That means the team can bring him up to the NHL for 30 days before he has to clear waivers again. It's unlikely he's in the opening night lineup.

    Analysis: Travis Morin posted sensational numbers with AHL Texas last season (32 goals and 56 assists), but only played four games with the parent club in 2013-14, managing only one assist in those games. If another NHL team does not claim him, Morin will return to the reigning Calder Cup champs. At 30 years old, Morin is not considered a prospect, despite what his AHL numbers might suggest.

  • Morin Scores Game 3 OT Winner For AHL Stars

    News: Travis Morin netted the OT winner for AHL Texas in Game 3 against St. John's on Wednesday.
    Analysis: Travis Morin continues his point-per-game playoff pace with Wednesday's goal. He has seven goals and 12 assists in 19 playoff contests -- not much of a departure from his regular season, in which he compiled a ridiculous 88 points in 66 games for Texas. But at 30 years old, he's no prospect and has played in just seven NHL games.
