'Tough road' traveled: The odds-defying resurgence of Mattias Janmark

His career once up in the air because of a rare knee injury, the Stars forward has returned with a vengeance

by Scott Burnside @OvertimeScottB / DallasStars.com

What instrument measures heart? Desire? Character?

Can we measure such qualities by the manner in which a person addresses the unknown or the unthinkable?

If a pro athlete confronts the possibility that their career may be over or irrevocably changed with grace and determination, can we call that courage?

Does that denote character?

And if those things are true, then, perhaps, more needs to be known and said about Dallas Stars forward Mattias Janmark.

Prospect Report: Heiskanen impresses for Finland at Olympics

Hitchcock on the defense prospect: 'For a young guy, he plays a very mature game'

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

Stars defense prospect Miro Heiskanen has played well in his first three games for Team Finland at the Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Heiskanen, Dallas' first-round pick (third overall) in the 2017 NHL Draft, has no points in the three games, but he's been noticeable with his puck-moving prowess, ability to win puck battles and solid defensive play. He stepped up his offensive game in Sunday's 3-1 loss to Sweden, getting off some good chances and creating others for his teammates.

As Finland pressed for the tying goal late in Sunday's game, Heiskanen was on the ice. He logged 18:37 of ice time on Sunday -- the most he has played at the Olympics.

Slow start dooms Stars in loss to Sharks

A six-game road point streak comes to an end as Dallas falls 5-2 to begin its West Coast trip

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

The Dallas Stars' three-game California road trip got off to a rough start. The Stars surrendered four first-period goals on their way to a 5-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks at SAP Center on Sunday evening.

The Sharks scored on their first shot 27 seconds into the game and then tallied three more goals on their next four shots in building a 4-0 lead by late in the first period. The Sharks pushed the lead to 5-0 in the second.

"I don't know what to say. When you don't check, and you don't want to check against a good team who is ready to play, you get buried," said Stars coach Hitchcock. "When you look at the last three games, we've given up so many scoring chances because we don't want to check. When we get back to that, we'll be a good team again."
