Colton Sceviour's debut year was interesting to say the least, Sceviour was the American Hockey League's leading scorer while playing for the eventual Calder Cup Champion Texas Stars until being called up to Dallas due to Rich Peverley's season ending heart issues.
Sceviour played in just 32 games (26 regular season, 6 postseason) with the Dallas Stars, but ended the season with 9 goals & 6 assists.
Just what the doctor ordered for the youthful Stars squad, an offense generating, mature, 25 year old right wing to fill up the holes on the Stars roster that are otherwise empty.
Sceviour, of Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, has the important combination of passing & scoring prowess, an ability often seen among the NHL's elite offensive players, which contributed to the 2 year, one-way contract he received in early february.
The Stars were ecstatic to obtain such an instant impact in the 6 foot 1 inch Sceviour, Stars LW Erik Cole states "The depth he provides is outstanding" Proven by the fact that Sceviour finished 11th in goals scored among all Stars players, despite playing in just a little over a quarter of the 2013-14 campaign.
Sceviour, the 112th selection in the 2007 NHL entry draft, was no life changing revelation for the Dallas Stars by any means, but he did what he asked to do, and ultimately did a terrific job, Sceviour was magnificent in Cedar Park, and my fingers are crossed hoping he is the same in Dallas.
