Rosburg, 27, was limited to just 12 games with the Texas Stars in 2022-23 before missing the rest of the season with an injury, but Dallas has evidently seen enough from him over the past three years to warrant keeping him around for another season. Signed to a one-year entry-level deal by Dallas in 2020 after recording 17 points in 36 games during his final season with Michigan State University, Rosburg has since skated in 115 games in Texas, recording six goals and 20 assists.
He’s yet to see an NHL recall but remains in the organization as a serviceable bottom-pairing option to round out their AHL roster. He’ll complement a group of Stars prospects eligible for AHL time that includes 2021 second-round pick Artem Grushnikov, 2022 second-round pick Christian Kyrou, and 2022 fourth-round pick Gavin White.
The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Rosburg hails from Clarksville, Maryland but underwent initial development in the Columbus Blue Jackets youth hockey system, followed by USHL stints with the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders and Sioux City Musketeers before joining Michigan State in 2015. After staying out of the lineup during his freshman season entirely, Rosburg recorded 12 goals, 43 assists, and 55 points in 141 games across four seasons with the Spartans.
