Shawn Horcoff will be back in Edmonton to play against the Oilers on Tuesday night.
"It's going to be emotional," said Horcoff, who was drafted by the Oilers in 1998 and played every season of his career with the club until he was traded to Dallas in the summer. "They gave me a chance to come into this league. I played every line, every position, I went from a guy who played six, eight minutes a night to a top-playing guy. I owe them a lot." He has one goal and one assist in his last two games, which gives him five points in 17 appearances with his new team so far.

Shawn Horcoff likes the Dallas Stars' depth up the middle.
Horcoff joined Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley on the list of the Dallas Stars' newly acquired centers. "I'm a fan of depth," said Horcoff. "I have played on teams with depth, and I've played on teams with not much. And the problem with teams with not much, is there are always going to be lulls throughout the years or on certain lines, and just that change or tweak can keep things fresh. You can reignite by juggling things around. This depth will give (coach) Lindy (Ruff) the opportunity to do that." That depth will also make it hard for Horcoff to get or maintain a top-six position next season.

Shawn Horcoff is aware of the importance of the number 10 he'll wear in Dallas.
Longtime captain Brendon Morrow donned that number. "I've got a lot of respect for Brenden, I've played with him in World Championships before," Horcoff said. "We're both in the same situation where we were both with the same organization for so long and maybe needed a chance, so I'm aware of the significance of the number, and I'll do anything I can to keep that significance going."
