With his second assist of the game against San Antonio on Wednesday night, Texas Stars forward Travis Morin has joined the American Hockey League’s 500-point club.

Morin is the 92nd player in league history with 500 regular-season points.

Morin is the only player to skate in each season for the Stars since their inception in 2009. The 33-year-old native of Brooklyn Park, Minn., has recorded five goals and 27 assists for 32 points in 32 games for Texas in 2017-18, tied for fifth in the league in scoring.

During the Stars’ Calder Cup championship season in 2013-14, Morin won the Jack A. Butterfield award as the most valuable player of the playoffs, as well as the Les Cunningham Award (regular season MVP) and John B. Sollenberger Trophy (leading scorer). He also participated in the 2014 AHL All-Star Classic.

In 580 career AHL games with Texas and Hershey, Morin has totaled 162 goals and 338 assists for 500 points.

A 2004 draft pick by the Washington Capitals, Morin has also appeared in 13 National Hockey League games, all with the Dallas Stars.
