Eakins return earmarks Stars wining streak

Center Cody Eakins return to the Dallas lineup has spearheaded
the teams rise to a playoff bearth with their first three game winning
streak of the season.
According to the Dallas Stars, between periods The Tickets’
Bruce Levine said “the Dallas Stars are back to playing Dallas Stars
Hockey and Cody Eakins is a main contributor.”
When Eakin arrived in Dallas from the Washington Capitals minor
league system he was projected to be a 3rd or 4th line center. The
Eakin trade was by far the best deal the former GM Joe Nieuwendyk made
during his tenure beside acquiring Kari Letonen. Famed Hockey
historian, Raymond Fullerton remarked that, “Cody quickly became the
second coming of fellow Red Head Dallas Stars Stanley Cup winner Mike
Keane.”
