DALLAS (AP) _ Not even being the son of the general manager will get you a spot on the Dallas Stars' roster.

The Stars assigned six players to the AHL's Utah Grizzlies on Wednesday, including Steve Gainey, the son of general manager Bob Gainey.

Also assigned to the Grizzlies were goaltender Chad Alban, defensemen Greg Hawgood and Dan Jancevski, and forwards Jim Montgomery and Gavin Morgan.

The roster moves leave the Stars with 28 players in training camp.
