(Boise, ID) ? Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Hardy Sauter announced Wednesday afternoon that forward Stephen Schultz has been assigned to the Idaho Steelheads by the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League. Texas is Idaho?s AHL affiliate and the two teams are the primary development affiliates of the NHL?s Dallas Stars. Schultz is a rookie forward out of Colorado College. The 5-foot-11 winger netted 36 goals in 127 contests in four years of college hockey. He made his professional debut with Texas last season, appearing in five games, before signing an AHL contract this past offseason with the Stars. He has seven goals in 32 games with the Stars this season, his first full professional campaign. The 24-year-old was not Idaho?s lineup Wednesday night against the Alaska Aces. Forwards Michael Neal and Ondrej Roman along with defensemen Hubert Labrie and Jace Coyle have all been assigned to Idaho by their affiliates in Texas and Dallas this season. Forward Ian Lowe and goaltender Jimmy Spratt (since traded to Utah) were also loaned from Idaho to Texas. The American Hockey League is the highest level of minor-league hockey in North America. Group outings at a Steelheads game are a great way to gather friends, colleagues, or co-workers for a fun night out in downtown Boise. Ticket prices are discounted and you can get a Pepsi, Double-R Ranch Hot Dog, and bag of Tim?s Cascade Chips with each ticket. Contact the Steelheads front office at 208.383.0080 or log on to www.idahosteelheads.com for more information.
