For the first time in his career, Travis Morin will play a game against Maxime Fortunus when the Texas Stars visit the Iowa Wild this weekend.

“It’ll be a little weird, I’m sure,” Morin said. “I played against him all the time in practice. But (the) game will be a little different. Obviously, (we’re) good friends and we both want to win. When we get out there, we’ll put that aside for 60 minutes and then be friends again.”

Fortunus was one of the original Stars and played six seasons for the team, including three as captain. This past offseason the team decided not to re-sign the defenseman, and Morin replaced him as captain.
