Stankoven was sent down to AHL Texas on Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

This is likely a paper move for the Stars to buy some time to balance their roster and cap situation following the team's acquisition of Chris Tanev on Wednesday. Stankoven has three points over three NHL games and will likely be on the NHL roster ahead of Thursday's contest versus the Jets since the Stars have only 11 healthy forwards available after Wednesday's moves.
