Here are the two news releases for the Stars Monday Sawada can be recalled if Sean Avery is taken off of recall waivers, but Landon Wilson also is getting healthy, so Sawada may stay in Manitoba:
STARS' OTT SUSPENDED FOR ONE GAME
Suspension Served March 1 Against Pittsburgh
TORONTO (March 2, 2009) - Dallas Stars forward Steve Ott has been suspended for one game, without pay, as a result of an altercation during NHL game #925 against the Anaheim Ducks, the National Hockey League announced today. Ott, who was suspended for three games in March 2008, now is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
Accordingly, he forfeits $17,378.05 in salary based on the number of games in the season (82), rather than the number of days (186). The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
At the 20:00 mark of the third period, Ott and Anaheim forward Travis Moen engaged in an altercation at which time Moen sustained an injury. Ott was assessed a major penalty for fighting and a match penalty for attempt to injure under Rule 21.1. Ott, who served his suspension on March 1 against Pittsburgh, is eligible to return tomorrow night when the Stars play the Sharks in San Jose.
DALLAS STARS ASSIGN RAYMOND SAWADA TO MANITOBA (AHL)
FRISCO, Tex. - The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has assigned right wing Raymond Sawada to the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League (AHL). Sawada, 24 appeared in five games with the Stars and scored a goal in his NHL debut Feb. 19 vs. Edmonton.
He became the third Dallas Star to score a goal in his NHL debut this season (also James Neal and Fabian Brunnstrom) and the sixth since the club moved to Texas in 1993. The native of Richmond, B.C., has posted five goals and 14 assists for 19 points in 48 games with Manitoba this season, with a plus-8 rating and 31 penalty minutes.
Dallas' second round pick (No. 52 overall) in the 2004 Entry Draft, Sawada played four years at Cornell University (2004-2008), scoring 31 goals and 45 assists for 76 points in 137 games. He served as co-captain for the Big Red last season and finished his Cornell career one appearance shy of the school's record for games played (Jeremy Downs, 138).
