Shawn Horcoff has meshed well with Erik Cole of late.
The duo has been productive in Dallas' last two games, with Horcoff assisting on three goals by Cole.

Shawn Horcoff appears to be penciled in to play left wing on the fourth line this season.

If the Stars want to shake up their lines at some point then he could end up skating with Jason Spezza and Ales Hemsky. Horcoff played with Hemsky in Edmonton, but a move to the second line would be a significant jump after averaged just 12:51 of ice time last season. He recorded just seven goals and 20 points in 77 games. Horcoff ended the year well with a team-leading six points in the playoffs. However, it's unlikely he'll chip in much offensively in 2014-15 while serving as a decent depth forward for the Stars.
