The Texas Stars have assigned Josh Robinson to Idaho, leaving Allen York and Cristopher Nilstorp as the goalie tandem for the team’s upcoming road trip.
With Nilstorp healthy Texas had to make a decision on which goalie to keep as a backup before Jack Campbell returns from injury. Josh Robinson dressed Wednesday night and entered the game in relief, but York looked better in his past two starts then Robinson.
