Dillon's first goal as a Shark powers win over Coyotes

Defenseman's first goal with San Jose and an unexpectedly dominant showing by a new-look fourth line led the Sharks to victory. Brenden Dillon's first game as a San Jose Shark after being acquired in a trade with Dallas came on November 22nd against the Arizona Coyotes. It wasn't the smoothest of debuts as Dillon was caught on the ice for a goal by Arizona's David Schlemko in the first period before inadvertently kicking a puck past Antti Niemi less than a minute into the third period to give the Coyotes a 3-2 lead en route to an eventual shootout victory. He'll assuredly have much fonder...

Dallas Stars Analysis: David Schlemko and The Defensive Shuffle

What does David Schlemko bring to the table and how can he help? Ever since the Dallas Stars parted ways with Kevin Connauton and Sergei Gonchar they have been in the uncomfortable position of needing to scratch a defenseman on a nightly basis that they don't really want to scratch. They've been carrying the young John Klingberg, Jamie Oleksiak, and Jyrki Jokipakka. Klingberg has established himself, but the other two haven't been able to do so. Enter David Schlemko. The Stars claimed him off of waivers from the Arizona Coyotes to give them a more conventional seventh defenseman. Jim Nill...

Dallas Stars Claim Defenseman David Schlemko Off Waivers; Will Create Rotation on Defense between AHL/NHL

The Stars picked up a defenseman! In a somewhat surprising move, the Dallas Stars have claimed defenseman David Schlemko after he was placed on waivers by the Arizona Coyotes on Friday. Schlemko is a 6-1, 190 lb puck-moving defenseman who has had some struggles this season for the Coyotes (like most of them) and has already passed through waivers once, with Arizona failing to trade the left-shot defenseman. He's not very physical, and was getting into trouble earlier this season for bad decisions with the puck. He's played better of late, however, and Schlemko isn't being asked to come into...

Dallas Stars claim David Schlemko off waivers

Arizona Coyotes defenseman David Schlemko is off to Big D. The Dallas Stars announced that they had claimed Arizona Coyotes defenseman David Schlemko off waivers earlier this morning. Schlemko will immediately join the Stars. It's been a bumpy season for the Coyotes' defenseman. After starting the season with the team, Schlemko was in and out of the rotation with players like Chris Summers and Connor Murphy. Schlemko's time in Arizona appeared to be coming to a close once Brandon Gormley emerged as an everyday NHL defenseman. There were simply too many blueliners up at the NHL level to...
