Adapting to change just a way of life for Stars' Robertson

Through perspective and experience, the 2017 second-round pick continues to grow during a year of transition

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

It's been a year of growth for Jason Robertson.

The 20-year-old Stars prospect started 2019 at the World Junior Championship playing for Team USA, moved on to lead the OHL in scoring with 117 points in 62 games (playing for both Kingston and Niagara), went through NHL training camp with Dallas, and now is third on the Texas Stars in scoring as an AHL rookie.

That's a lot to digest.

Stars prospects hope World Junior experience helps pave path to NHL

After winning the bronze medal with Sweden, Dallas' 2018 draft picks Eriksson and Back have even loftier goals in mind

by Julie Robenhymer @JulieRobenhymer / Special to DallasStars.com

OSTRAVA, Czech Republic -- Dallas Stars prospects Albin Eriksson and Oskar Back didn't leave Czech Republic earlier this month quite as happy as Ty Dellandrea, who took home a gold medal with Team Canada at the 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship, but they did leave with a smile on their faces, a bronze medal around their neck and a whole lot of experience that they hope will lead them to the NHL.

After Team Sweden extended their record number of preliminary-round wins to 52, they defeated Czech Republic 5-0 in the quarterfinal, but lost to Russia 5-4 in overtime during the semifinal. That set them up for a bronze medal game against Finland, which they won 3-2.

'It's just special': Gold medal another step forward for Ty Dellandrea

The Stars' rising center prospect continues to blossom, helping Canada to its third world junior crown in six years

by Julie Robenhymer @JulieRobenhymer / Special to DallasStars.com

OSTRAVA, Czech Republic -- Like many Canadian kids, Ty Dellandrea had a hockey rink in his backyard. Also, like many Canadian kids, he watched the World Junior Championship with his family on TV every year and dreamed of representing Team Canada at the annual tournament for the world's best junior players.

"During intermissions, they'd show a drill on TV and I'd go out there and practice it on the backyard rink. I won a whole bunch of gold medals out there," the 19-year-old said with a laugh. "Pretty sure there was at least one OT game-winner in there, too."

But unlike most Canadian kids, Dellandrea actually got to live out his dream when he wore the red and white maple leaf at the 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship in the Czech Republic and took home the gold medal on Sunday when his team came from behind in the third period to defeat Russia, 4-3.
