Tom Wandell

The Stars made a pair of moves prior to Erik Cole‘s Dallas debut on Thursday night.

First, the club put forward Tom Wandell on waivers.

Wandell, 26, had been with AHL Texas 0n a conditioning assignment. He’s appeared in just seven games with Dallas this season, recording no points with a minus-2 rating.

The Swedish forward was an RFA last summer and accepted a one-year, $892,500 deal to stick with the Stars.

Wandell has spent his entire career with the Dallas organization after being drafted in 2005, emerging as a solid bottom-six checking forward over the last two seasons. The Swedish center tied a career-high with 15 points last year.

The Stars also assigned 22-year-old forward Matt Fraser to Texas.

Fraser’s appeared in two games this season with Dallas, and recorded one point with a plus-2 rating. He recorded his first NHL goal against Nashville, and will now return to the club he represented at the 2013 AHL All-Star Game.

Fraser leads Texas in points this year, with 35.
