|#8 Daniel Wasson|
After being a last-minute cut by DC United in the spring of 2010, Daniel Wasson drove to Minnesota to try out for the Stars. He made the team and finished 2010 as the team's leader in assists with four.
He began his professional career with his hometown Colorado Rapids. He left the Rapids in 2007 to play in Germany, first with SV Meppen then with VfL Osnabrück.
After two seasons with the Air Force Academy, where he recorded 23 goals and seven assists in 37 appearances, Wasson transferred to the University of Tulsa in 2004. He started 43 games in two seasons with the Golden Hurricane, scoring eight goals and six assists in a more defensive role.
Wasson is etched in Stars history as the scorer of the team's first-ever goal (April 16, 2010 against Carolina) and provider of the team's first assist (April 21, 2010 on a goal by Neil Hlavaty against Puerto Rico).
Wasson missed most of 2011 after tearing his ACL during the offseason, but he was cleared to return to action September 9.
