Sheet Player News (Dec. 30)

A poor start to the season in his limited action and losing out a minutes battle with a called-up goalie has forced the hand of the Dallas Stars to demote back-up goaltender Andrew Raycroft, as he was sent down to the Texas Stars of the AHL on Thursday morning.  The Stars welcomed Kari Lehtonen back to their crease on Thursday night and Richard Bachman has won the job over Raycroft after playing some great hockey, while Lehtonen was on the shelf with his groin injury.  Raycroft was not a popular player on the selection sheet this year, so there shouldn't be much loss in this demotion.
