The Texas (Cedar Park) Stars are proud to announce their first player promotion to the NHL. Center Aaron Gagnon was called up today by the Dallas Stars after scoring an empty-net goal in Cedar Park last night in Texas' 2-0 victory over Grand Rapids. When Gagnon takes the ice for Dallas, it'll serve as his NHL debut.

“This is a big day for the Texas Stars and a big day for Aaron Gagnon,” said Texas General Manager Scott White. “Aaron is a responsible player who is deserving of this opportunity. Our main goal here is to develop Dallas Stars and we will continue to do that.”

Gagnon's goal against Grand Rapids was his sole point for the Stars in five games this season while amassing eight penalty minutes.

After playing on the road in Houston on Saturday, the Stars return to the Cedar Park Center for a three-game homestand: Vs. Lake Erie: Tue., Oct. 20, 7:30pm; and Fri., Oct. 23, 7:30pm. Vs. Hamilton: Sat., Oct. 24, 7pm. Cedar Park Center, 2100 Avenue of the Stars, 512/GO-STARS. $9-50.
