It won’t be the first time that Dawson Barteaux is playing in Winnipeg as the Manitoban played for the Ice of the WHL back in 2019-20 to close out his junior career which began for the right-shot defenceman in Regina.
The 2018 6th rounder of the Dallas Stars played 25 games as a rookie with the Stars AHL affiliate followed by 30 games in his second season as a pro although he also played 11 games that same season with the Idaho Steelheads. He would spend time in both the AHL and ECHL this past season although the majority of his games (62) were in the ECHL.
It was first reported by Jacob Stollar of The Hockey News that the Manitoban would be returning to his home province to play hockey during the 2023-24 season. Now his agency has confirmed the contract.
The team has not yet confirmed the details.
