The Christmas break, bye week and all-star break are in the Dallas Stars’ rearview mirror. From their precarious perch in the Western Conference’s first wild card spot, the playoffs are within reach. Could general manager Jim Nill swing a deal to improve the Stars’ playoff chances between now and the February 26 trade deadline? Some

It’s cold in Buffalo, but the Dallas Stars World Junior Championship prospects are starting to heat things up. Both of the Stars’ goalie prospects have split time with their respective teammates guarding the net. The Stars two blue line prospects are logging significant minutes, and their two forward prospects are also making a positive impact. As

There’s no place like home for the Dallas Stars, who are 10-4-0 at the American Airlines Center this season. They struggled mightily away from Dallas last season, posting a disappointing 12-24-5 road record, and are 6-9-1 as visitors so far in 2017-18. The Stars left town after practice Sunday, heading east on a tough four-game

So far, the Dallas Stars 2017-18 season has had a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde kind of feel to it. At home, the Stars have been great, while on the road they transform into a disturbingly bad team. We can only hope the Stars season has a happier ending than the fictional literary classic by Robert

It seemed like a typical Friday night at Snuffers in Highland Village, Texas. There wasn’t a seat available at the bar as patrons chatted about the end of another work week, the movies playing next door at the AMC and the local sports scene. Making the customers’ favorite drinks from behind the bar was Kristina

The Dallas Stars cruised past a Minnesota Wild squad made up mostly of ‘bubble’ players and AHLers Tuesday night. With the 4-1 victory, the Stars improved to 3-2-0 in September. They’ll close out the preseason Saturday in the Twin Cities, where they’ll likely face a dramatically different Wild team. It’s easy to dismiss preseason games;

However, when you start to peel the onion back, barring a trade, it becomes clear the Stars cap flexibility is, in a word, nill (pun intended).

The Dallas Stars were busy this summer signing arguably the two best unrestricted free agent forwards on the market to multi-year contracts. First, they signed mountainous Martin Hanzal to a three-year deal worth $14.25 million. The 30-year-old Czech native is 6 foot 6 and 230 pounds. Hanzal excels at faceoffs and brings needed help to

On August 15, two former college hockey players became high-profile National Hockey League, free agents. Will Butcher and Alex Kerfoot, both previously drafted, can now sign with any NHL team. Butcher is former University of Denver defenseman. A fifth-round pick by the Colorado Avalanche in 2013, he has the offensive skills many teams covet. He

Why did the Dallas Stars sign Martin Hanzal? Virtually all of the Stars’ other offseason moves are easily understood: The team needed to make a coaching change, so Ken Hitchcock was hired. To improve their last line of defense, they traded for Ben Bishop and signed him to a six-year deal before the giant goalie

It’s been more than six years since the Dallas Stars used their first-round pick (14th overall) in the 2011 NHL Draft to select a 6-foot-7 defenseman from Northeastern University. To say Jamie Oleksiak’s development hasn’t happened overnight would be an understatement. However, good things come to those who wait, right? Players of Oleksiak’s stature tend

The Dallas Stars are building a formidable prospect pipeline, thanks to the Detroit Red Wings. Between 1990 and 2017, the Red Wings qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs an amazing 25 consecutive seasons. Key to that run was the ability to consistently identify and draft NHL-caliber talent, whether near the bottom of the first round

WARNING: This article is grossly unfair to the Dallas Stars. It’s unfair because A) drafting 17- and 18-year-olds is a crapshoot, B) hindsight is 20/20 and C) you can plug in any other team name and write virtually the same article. Disclaimer aside, an autopsy of the Stars’ performance at the 2003 NHL Entry Draft

While July 1 normally marks the start of free agency in the hockey world, that arguably took the back seat to a blockbuster trade on July 4 almost four years ago. Two years after winning the Stanley Cup, the Boston Bruins moved one of their youngest, brightest stars just after free agency started – shocking
