Dallas Stars forward prospect Jason Robertson continues to rack up the points in the Ontario Hockey League and so do Dallas prospects Riley Damiani and Liam Hawel, who both have been on nice runs recently.
Center Ty Dellandrea, the Stars' first-round pick in 2018, continues to be productive despite playing on a team that doesn't win very often. And in Europe, forwards Albin Eriksson, Jacob Peterson, and Oscar Back are faring well as young players in Sweden's top two leagues.
In the college ranks, after a slow start with a struggling Boston University team, goaltender Jake Oettinger has come on strong as the season has moved along.
Here's an update on Dallas prospects playing in Europe, college and juniors.
