The NHL season is underway and so is the AHL season. Off to an early lead in their scoring race is Travis Morin of the Texas Stars (Dallas farm club). He has 15 points in his six games played. This gives him a three point lead over his nearest competitor.
Morin is a 29 year old career minor leaguer. He has three NHL games played (with no points scored) in 2010/11. This is his 7th partial season in the league. He is a thin 6'2" 175 lbs and does not play a strong physical or defensive game but he has some scoring talent. His best AHL season to date is a 66 point year so he is on a career best pace. Thus it is likely that he will not lead the league all season long. A more proven AHL scorer will likely pass him. It is rare that a 29 year old takes a big step offensively as Morin will have if he continues scoring at this pace. Nevertheless he is a solid candidate to make the Dallas Stars roster by season's end.
