It looks like Brad Winchester’s NHL career won’t skip a beat. After not being signed by the Oilers this summer, he signed with Dallas in hopes of grabbing a roster spot. Unlike Tony Salmelainen (Toronto), Tobias Petersen (also Dallas) and Alexei Semenov (who is in very tough in San Jose), Winchester appears to have survived training camp with the Stars.
How much playing time he’ll get is an open question, and since they placed 5 guys on the IR today the end-of-the-roster guys should probably pay their board by the day.
Still, Winchester has a roster spot.
