Colton Sceviour has spent the last four years in the AHL, grinding it out as best as he could with the Texas Stars. The right wing was one of the few players left who had started with the Stars in their inaugural 2009-2010 season and had played the most games out of everyone, logging 294 games. Before making his professional debut, Sceviour had played for the Portland Winter Hawks and the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the WHL.
After joining the Texas Stars in 2009, Sceviour quickly and effectively made his mark on the team. He is the franchise’s plus-minus leader with +28, 16 shorthanded goals, 733 shots on goal, 12 shootout goals, and 16 game winning goals. In addition he was a familiar face on every power play opportunity and the penalty kill.
Despite flourishing in the AHL, Sceviour has not been able to break the Dallas Stars roster as we all know he deserves. Under new management and a new coach, 2013-2014 may be the season to finally make the NHL roster. He has taken full advantage of this new opportunity and the stars may finally align to make his dream come true.
In the Dallas Stars third pre-season game against the Colorado Avalanche, Sceviour made his presence known by nabbing himself a little hat trick (on just 3 shots no less) and an assist to Jamie Benn’s goal. The Stars went on to win 5-3 over the Avalanche.
After last night, Sceviour’s game is on everyone’s radar and now it remains to be seen if he will make the Dallas Stars roster. He certainly deserves it.
