Stars Recall John Erskine From Iowa

FRISCO, Tex. – Dallas Stars General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today that the club has recalled defenseman John Erskine from the Iowa Stars, the Stars’ primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

Erskine, 25, played in Iowa’s game on Dec. 3 vs. Peoria, going scoreless with a +2 rating and four penalty minutes. He has also appeared in 14 games with Dallas this season, going scoreless with 45 penalty minutes.

The 6-4, 219-pound defenseman has appeared in 95 career games with the Stars, recording two goals and two assists for four points with 220 penalty minutes.

The Stars’ second round selection (39th overall) in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft played the entire 2004-05 season in the AHL, collecting three goals and seven assists for 10 points with 238 penalty minutes in 61 contests.

Hopefully he stays with the Stars a little longer. Or at least long enough to fight a few times then get assigned again

I'm surprised they called him up. The Stars only play twice in the next 9 days. Their schedule next week includes the Sens, Hawks, Wild, and Jackets though. So hopefully he sticks around long enough for those.

The Stars need him, Perrott is not doing anything, hopefully Erskine will.

Perrott was done the second the Leafs-Sens game ended when he didn't challenge McGrattan after he bloodied Domi. Why the Stars wanted him is beyond me. He clearly doesn't understand his role. Erskine deserves the spot.

Erskine will play for the next two weeks while Boucher is out. So he is in for sure. Perrott will split scratches with Svboda, but with Erskine in, I would say NP will be a healthy scratch.

Perrott was brought in for his "scoring abilities and potential." Per the press release at least. If you look, Steve Ott has not had a fight since Nathan was signed, so that should tell you Dallas was sick of seeing Ott get his ass handed to him every other night.

Erskine is an underrated fighter and I hope he stays up with the big club all year.
