5 From 5-Hole

Camp: Day One

Five things I liked:

  1. HEB Arena - awesome venue to watch sessions and a prime AHL rink
  2. "Hotstovin" again. Looooove talkin' shop.
  3. The substantial media meat plate that was provided (Only the finest meats, cheeses, fruits and buns were assembled...and there was also some food...Buh-dum-bump!)
  4. The 'hidden bag skate' drills followed by the 'nets pushed out, REAL bag skate', followed by the off-ice workout (It's supposed to be hard)
  5. Seguin's selfie with the school kids

Stars go through tough practices as training camp opens in Cedar Park

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

Dallas Stars hockey is back. Forty-six players hit the ice for the start of training camp Friday at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park. Coaches split the team into two groups and ran both through a tough on-ice session that lasted about 75 minutes.

"We put them through a pretty tough battery of drills, pretty hard skate," said Stars coach Lindy Ruff.

"It wasn't easy out there, and I don't think the first day should be easy," said Stars captain Jamie Benn. "He put us through a pretty tough skate and it was a good one."

The Stars practice again Saturday and then scrimmage at the H-E-B Center Sunday. Ruff said the goal is to get things in order for Monday's preseason opener against the St. Louis Blues at American Airlines Center.

Lehtinen shaping next generation of Finnish hockey

Former Stars player thriving as Finland's General Manager

by Evan Sporer @ev_sporer / NHL.com

What started out as pleasure for Jere Lehtinen has turned into business.

And lately, business has been good.

When Lehtinen finished his playing career with the Dallas Stars in 2010, a 15-year NHL tour spent entirely in the Lone Star state, he said he knew he didn't want to coach.

"But I wasn't sure what was going to happen in the future," he said.

Faksa and Lindell gaining confidence at World Cup

Both players using World Cup experience as an opening audition to regular roles in Dallas

by Evan Sporer @ev_sporer / NHL.com

It wasn't just that forwards and countrymen Ales Hemsky and Radek Faksa became close in the sense of 'friends' last season when Faksa was called up to the NHL.

"I was living at his house, too," Faksa said.

Faksa became an understudy of sorts, and followed Hemsky all the way onto the same line. Along with Antoine Roussel, they were a unit that earned more playing time by effectively filling a checking, defensive niche for head coach Lindy Ruff.

Statement from Dave Strader on his cancer diagnosis

by Dallas Stars Staff / Press Releases

The Dallas Stars have released the following statement on behalf of Play-By-Play Announcer Dave Strader regarding his cancer diagnosis:

"With the start of the NHL season almost upon us, I wanted to share an update on my condition with everyone who has been kind enough to reach out over the past several months. In early June 2016, a tumor was found in my bile duct. I was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma, a fairly rare and aggressive form of cancer.

"There is no cure for my cancer. However, at this point in time, it is treatable. With advancements in all areas of cancer treatments evolving so quickly, I'm fighting every day and doing everything the doctors tell me. The Stars' organization, the fans and the entire NHL family have been so supportive. It has meant so much to me, my wife Colleen and our entire family to know that we are not in this fight alone. I will work as many games as my condition and my treatments allow. Thank you again for all your love and support."

Fans wishing to send their notes of support to Strader can do so by emailing WellWishesForStrader@dallasstars.com.

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

Dallas Stars prospects wrapped up the NHL Prospect Tournament in Traverse City on a positive note, rallying for a 5-3 victory over St. Louis Tuesday night. Denis Gurianov and Devin Shore both had one goal and one assist and Landon Bow stopped 33 shots for the Stars, who finished in fifth place with a 2-1-1 record. 

Mike McMurtry, Connor Chatham, and Nick Caamano also scored for the Stars, who overcame a 2-0 deficit in the game. 

"Four games in five nights is hard on these kids, but I thought in the second period we controlled most of the play and played the way we were capable of," said Texas Stars coach Derek Laxdal, who coached the Dallas prospects. "It was a nice way to finish off with a win."

Prospects will play for 5th place after 6-3 loss

The Stars will play St. Louis for fifth place after losing to Carolina on Monday night.

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

The Dallas Stars needed a regulation win over Carolina Monday night to advance to the championship game at the NHL Prospect Tournament in Traverse City, but they'll play for fifth place after falling, 6-3, to the Hurricanes.

Ethan Szypula, Jordan Topping, and Devin Shore scored goals for the Stars, who finished the preliminary round of the tournament with a 1-1-1 record.

"I thought we played okay," said Texas Stars coach Derek Laxdal, who is coaching Dallas prospects in Traverse City. "Like I told the guys after the game, I thought our D zone was a little loose, and they have pretty good skill on that team, and they picked it apart."

Denis Gurianov making impression in Traverse City

Stars management get a good look at Denis Gurianov in a highly competitive environment during the Traverse City tournament.

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

Talk to people with the Dallas Stars in Traverse City for the NHL Prospect Tournament and a lot of them will tell you seeing forward Denis Gurianov  play was high on their list.

Gurianov, the team's first-round pick (12th overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft is making the jump from Russia to North America this season. There hasn't been a lot of opportunity to see him play recently. He saw limited playing time in Russia's KHL last season, and he missed out on playing at the 2016 World Junior Championship. So, Traverse City was a great opportunity for Stars management, coaches and scouts to get a good look at Gurianov in a highly competitive environment.

"This is good, especially after we were unable to see him an awful lot last year," said Joe McDonnell, Stars director of amateur scouting. "Last year was a wasted year for us scouting-wise seeing him and a wasted year for himself. It's been nice [to see him] here and at development camp."
