Stars send Radek Faksa down to the AHL, again


The Dallas Stars demoted forward Radek Faksa to the AHL once again on Sunday.

There’s obviously still potential there as a 2012 first-rounder (13th overall), but Faksa hasn’t made much of an impact at the NHL level.

He’s played in four games in his most recent recall, managing an assist while averaging 8:35 time on ice per game.

It’s likely more beneficial to Faksa’s development to get more reps in the AHL, where he currently has 13 points in 19 games.

This also means that Ales Hemsky‘s likely to return to the Stars lineup soon.
