Mueller was a key part of the Texas Stars top ranked power play and had a team-high 15 goals. In the Calder Cup playoffs he scored in each round and centered a a line with Dustin Jeffrey and Scott Glennie.
With Dallas’ trade for Jason Spezza earlier today Mueller likely was pushed down the Stars depth chart. In New York he’ll be closer to home as well — he’s a native of West Seneca, NY.
