October 2, 2013 

LAST YEAR’S MVP HEADED BACK TO IDAHO The American Hockey League’s Texas Stars have assigned goaltender Josh Robinson to the Steelheads, who open training camp Sunday. Robinson was a dominant force last season and among the ECHL leaders in wins (27, second in the ECHL), save percentage (.925, second), shutouts (5, second), total saves (1,245, fourth) and total minutes played (2,362, sixth). Texas also sent goaltender Pat Nagle, 26, to Idaho. Nagle, who spent the past two seasons under contract with the NHL’s Tampa Bay Lightning, made 70 appearances over the past two seasons with the ECHL’s Florida Everblades. He was a part of Florida’s Kelly Cup championship team in 2012, leading the ECHL in goals-against average (1.42) and shutouts (2) and tied for the best save percentage (.941) among all playoff goaltenders that season. Robinson and Nagle combined on a 30-save shutout for Texas in its final preseason game Sunday against the San Antonio Rampage. The Steelheads open their season Oct. 18 at Utah, and play their home opener Oct. 23 against San Francisco.
