Stars send Fortunus back to minors

The Stars sent defenseman Maxime Fortunus back to the Texas Stars, the club's AHL affiliate.

Fortunus was called up before Wednesday's game under emergency conditions. The Stars were concerned that both Nicklas Grossman (groin) and Karlis Skrastins (hit by a puck) would not be available. Grossman did not play, but Skrastins did, so Fortunus was a healthy scratch.
