Nemeth rejoins Texas

The Dallas Stars have returned defenseman Patrik Nemeth on loan to their AHL affiliate, the Texas Stars.

Nemeth, 22, skated in eight games for Dallas during the 2013-14 regular season making his NHL debut on Apr. 1 at Washington. The 6-foot-3, 235-pound defenseman also skated in five Stanley Cup Playoff contests in 2014, registering one shot and 12 penalty minutes.

Nemeth spent most of the 2013-14 regular season with Texas, posting 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in 37 games and leading all team defensemen with a plus-19 rating.

The native of Stockholm, Sweden, was originally drafted by Dallas in the second round (41st overall) of the 2010 NHL Draft.
