There is still a long way to go until October, but there will be some players hitting the ice later this week in Kamloops, British Columbia.

Many of the top under-20 players in the world will take part in the World Junior Summer Showcase, a camp that is the first step in determining the rosters of the United States, Canada, Sweden, and Finland for the 2019 World Junior Championship.

Among the players participating will be Dallas Stars forward prospect Jason Robertson, who will be vying for a spot on Team USA's roster for World Juniors, which will be held in Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia beginning in late December.

How Nick Caamano has set himself up for bright future with Stars

Now evolved into a 'full player,' the touted prospect continues to show steady improvement as an all-around forward

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

Empty-net goals usually aren't worthy of putting on the highlight reel, but Stars forward prospect Nick Caamano scored one last season that merits consideration.

It was late in Game 6 of the Ontario Hockey League championship series with Caamano's Hamilton Bulldogs leading the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, 4-3. With the Greyhounds pressing for the game-tying goal, one of Caamano's teammates poked the puck from the defensive end into the neutral zone, setting off a race between Caamano and Sault Ste. Marie defenseman Jordan Sambrook. Sambrook, who was hanging back on the play, won the race, but Caamano fought to get the puck back as the two battled into the Sault Ste. Marie zone.

Eventually, Caamano prevailed in the puck battle, diving over a fallen Sambrook to put it into the net from near the bottom of the left circle with 1:58 remaining.

Healthy, motivated Dellandrea welcomes Stars' expectations

A new gluten-free diet and reunion with former teammate Caamano fuels the first-round pick's positive outlook

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

For almost two years Ty Dellandrea tried to figure out why he was constantly getting ill.

"I was throwing up lots, every two days," he said. "At first, I thought I was really, really sick, like a virus or something."

That wasn't it, so he moved onto dietary changes.

"Then I tried going off dairy because I thought it was dairy."

Nope, that wasn't it.

Heika: Stars' draft has to be evaluated on sliding scale

Dallas' scouts aren't concerned with perceptions of pick positions, knowing time will grade effectiveness of process

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

The new job has offered some great opportunities, and changed a lot of perceptions.

I was able to go to Buffalo and sit in on interviews with prospects for the 2018 NHL Draft, and it really was eye-opening. One, you realize how much work the scouts put in, and how close they are as a group. And two, you see just how similar all of these athletes are.

They are 17 or 18. They are well-trained in the interview process. They are hungry to become great players.

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

Friday was Day 1 of the NHL Draft in Dallas, but the Stars were busy on other fronts as well, getting one of their restricted free agents under contract and finalizing their coaching staff.

The Stars announced Friday that they signed defenseman Stephen Johns to a three-year contract extension worth $2.35 million per year.

"It's the biggest day of my career and solidifies me for three more years in the city, so I couldn't be more excited," Johns said just moments after the deal was announced. "I just want to thank the Dallas Stars and (owner) Tom Gaglardi for having faith in me and giving me this opportunity. I couldn't be happier."

Embracing new challenge, Dellandrea aims to flourish with Stars

The forward, who models his game after Chicago's Jonathan Toews, is ready to get to work in Dallas

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

Ty Dellandrea isn't afraid of a little hard work.

The first-round selection of the Stars (13th overall) Friday at the NHL Draft earned a lot of respect from Dallas scouts and front-office personnel when he made the decision to go to a struggling Flint Firebirds team in the Ontario Hockey League and roll up his sleeves. While Flint, which was taken over by the league in 2015 when its owner was suspended, finished 20-43-3-2 last season, Dellandrea kept a positive attitude in his second season and led the team in goals with 27 while scoring 59 points in 67 games.
