Matej Blumel Returned To AHL

Matej Blumel Returned To AHL

After playing just seven shifts in a game last night, Matej Blumel is on his way back to the minor leagues. The Dallas Stars have returned the young forward to the Texas Stars, who play three times in the next four days.

Blumel, 22, has suited up six times for Dallas this season but saw his ice time drop to just 4:28 last night, resulting in a blank scoresheet. He failed to record a hit, shot, or block, let alone any points in the shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

While the team could call him back up quickly – that has been the strategy so far, with Blumel bouncing back and forth every few days – it does seem like he has been worked out of the regular rotation. If that’s the case, Blumel might be better off playing more minutes in the AHL for the time being.
