Stars trade Muse to Charlotte

The Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, announced Monday they have traded goaltender John Muse to the Charlotte Checkers in exchange for future considerations.


Muse, 27, appeared in 19 games in his first season for Texas with a 9-3-3 record, a 3.02 goals against average and a .904 save percentage. The veteran goaltender has appeared in 127 AHL games in his career. Prior to signing with the Stars over the summer, the East Falmouth, Massachusetts-native played four years for the Checkers.


This marks the second time the Checkers have reacquired Muse, who also departed as a free agent in the summer of 2013 before rejoining the team on a PTO that fall.
