Dallas Stars‘ undrafted, 2nd year left wing Matt Fraser(25) appeared in his 2nd NHL game on his 1st recall of 2012/2013; and scored his first big league goal to start the game, which unfortunately ended as a 5-4 OT loss for the team.
He skated 15 shifts for 9:52 total ice time with his only shot on net being the tally and ended the night with a +1 rating.
Not too shabby for the 6’1″ 204 lbs. forward that amassed triple digit penalty minutes in his last three seasons of junior hockey but also average a point per game in his final two years.
In two campaigns with Texas Stars, he has kept up his marks on the scoresheet, running 37 goals and 18 assists as a rookie and continues to strike in his sophomore season with 24 goals and 11 assists. He was also chosen to represent his team at two consecutive AHL All-Star Games.
Signed to a three-year entry level contract, the 22-year old’s next score looks to be a 2-year contract extension to continue his development right where he’s at.
