Stars recall goalie Matt Climie

The Stars have recalled goaltender Matt Climie. Good for him. It's a chance for the Texas Stars' goalie to spend some time with the big club.

Here's part of the official release:

Climie, 27, has backstopped the Texas Stars to the playoffs in their inaugural season in the AHL with a 21-16-3 record in 42 appearances. He has earned a 2.40 goals-against-average (GAA) and his .921 save percentage ranks tied for sixth overall among AHL goaltenders. This marks Climie’s second stint with Dallas this season after serving as back-up for two games under emergency conditions (Oct. 30-Nov. 1).

The 6-3, 194-pound native of Luduc, Alta., made his National Hockey League debut in three appearances with the Dallas Stars last season, earning a 2-1-0 record with a 2.92 GAA. He played the majority of the 2008-09 season with the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL, earning 27 wins in 42 games. Climie signed as a free agent with Dallas on March 20, 2008.

The Dallas Stars will take on the Edmonton Oilers Friday night at American Airlines Center.
