Texas Stars fans weep as fan favorite Luke Gazdic departs for a shot at cracking the Oiler lineup...

When the Dallas Stars placed Colton Sceviour and goaltender Cristopher Nilstorp on waivers yesterday there was some intrigue as to whether one or both would be claimed.

They cleared. Luke Gazdic however did not.

The scrappy forward and Texas Stars favorite had a great camp and was noticeable in the preseason. The Edmonton Oilers apparently noticed him enough in Oklahoma City Friday night to claim him Saturday in their quest for a little grit.
