Stars Prospects

The Western Hockey League (WHL) announced that it has delayed its season beyond the previous proposed start date of Friday, Jan. 8, 2021. Florida Panthers prospect and third-round pick Ty Smilanic registered his first NCAA goal for Quinnipiac University and Dallas Stars fifth-round pick Daniel Ljungman scored his first career Swedish Hockey League (SHL) goal. WHL Delays Season Further Back in October the WHL has announced that their 2020-21 regular season is slated to begin on Friday, Jan. 8, 2021. However, due to the the increasing  public health restrictions across Canada, the decision has been made to delay the season further. No new start has been determined and the Board of Governors will meet in January to determine an appropriate start date. The news doesn't bode well for the return of junior hockey in Canada with the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League still on hiatus and the Ontario Hockey League's proposed start date of Dec. 1 having come and gone without results....

Previews and Predictions

Defenseman Jamie Oleksiak has developed into one of the most valuable pieces within the Dallas Stars organization. Appearing in every regular-season and postseason game for Victory Green, including two game-winning goals in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, 2019-20 was nothing short of a breakout campaign for the former first-round pick in 2011.  So much so, aside from the fact that he was once traded away and re-acquired by the Stars — he’s been recently trusted to anchor the opposite side of young sensation Miro Heiskanen, who led all NHL defensemen in points for the 2020 Playoffs just a short time ago. Jamie Oleksiak, Dallas Stars (Jess Starr/The Hockey Writers) The timing couldn’t be better for the 27-year-old, as he’s set to become an unrestricted free agent next summer and figures to gain substantial interest as it is. However, taking yet another step forward in his development could make him among the top priorities in the open market, with a hefty raise to the...

Stars History

Over the course of the franchise, the Dallas Stars have had six different captains. Each chosen to uphold the values of the team as well as exhibit leadership both on and off the ice. Here's a comprehensive history of every captain the Stars have had: Mark Tinordi The first player to don the captain C on a Dallas Stars jersey was Mark Tinordi. The Canadian-born defenseman was the previous captain of the Minnesota North Stars and was first named to the role for the 1991-92 season. The Stars kept him in that role as they made the transition from Minnesota to Dallas. However, the next season (1994-95) he was traded to the Washington Capitals in exchange for Kevin Hatcher. In his time as captain of the Dallas Stars, Tinordi appeared in 61 games and recorded 24 points. Tinordi retired prior to the 1999-00 season after being drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers in the expansion draft. Neal Broten After the Stars traded away Tinordi, centerman Neal Broten took over the...

The last glimpse we saw of Dallas Stars hockey was watching the Tampa Bay Lightning skate the Stanley Cup. In what was already an unprecedented season for the NHL and sports world as a whole, it concluded with an effort from the boys in Victory Green that no one will soon forget. Today, aside from the rare and frankly bizarre surroundings that was the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the replays simply serve as a reminder of the 21-year championship drought that continues to linger. Of course, with a new season (whenever that may be) comes new opportunities. Fresh off a campaign that included successfully hosting (and winning) the second-most attended game the sport has ever seen in the Winter Classic, followed by the first trip to the Cup Final since 2000 and a new third jersey — Stars fans are beyond anxious to drop the puck. But what if further delays in the start of the 2020-21 season actually benefit the reigning Western Conference champions? Let’s be honest, few...
