Stars trying to revive NHL-worst penalty kill

Expect to improve with additions of Methot, Hanzal

by Sean Shapiro / NHL.com Correspondent

FRISCO, Texas -- Fixing an NHL-worst penalty kill was one of the main priorities this offseason for the Dallas Stars, which is why they acquired center Martin Hanzal and defenseman Marc Methot.

"Hopefully I can help with that," Hanzal said Tuesday during his formal introduction. "Hopefully I can bring my size (6-foot-3, 220 pounds), my penalty-kill specialist, my size in front of the net, and I think we'll be fine."

The Stars signed Hanzal as a free agent on July 1, and made a trade for Methot with the Vegas Golden Knights on June 26 after the Ottawa Senators lost him in the NHL Expansion Draft.

The homecoming story is heartwarming, but the time is approaching when Shattenkirk and the Rangers will be focused on the business of winning, a challenge that will be harder this season.
