Stars Fall to Detroit in Traverse City Opener

by Staff Writer / Dallas Stars

The Dallas Stars’ prospect team dropped their first game of the Traverse City Prospects Tournament on Saturday by a score of 6-1.

Stars 2010 first round pick Jack Campbell was in net, but he had his struggles in his first action against professional competition. Campbell gave up four goals in the first period en route to a 6-1 loss.

“I’m disappointed, for sure,” Campbell said. “I feel like I let the team down but it’s one game. I’m looking forward to the next one and doing better in that start. Overall, I think I learned a lot and I think it’s going to make me better.”

Campbell was better in the final two periods, stopping 25-of-27 shots in that span. For the game, he made 32 saves on 38 shots.

Texas Stars coach Glen Gulutzan, who is serving as head coach at the tournament, was not happy with the defensive coverage in front of Campbell.

“Our defensive coverage wasn’t very good,” Gulutzan said. “When you give up 10 or 20 grade-A chances you are going to give up some goals no matter how many saves your goalie makes. He saw a lot of quality scoring chances and we can’t do that.”

Right wing Tomas Vincour scored the only goal for Dallas, netting one in the first period.

The Stars play St. Louis’ prospect team on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. (CT).
