The Dallas Stars have reassigned Jyrki Jokipakka to the Texas Stars, the team announced today.
The move comes after Dallas claimed David Schlemko off waivers from the Arizona Coyotes, a move that was made to get Jokipakka and Jamie Oleksiak more playing time in the NHL and AHL.
Jokipakka has played nine games in the AHL this season and has one point, a goal, and a minus-3 rating. In the NHL he’s appeared in 16 games and has three assists.
The Texas Stars also officially announced Julius Honka has returned to the team from the 2015 World Junior Championships.
