'Knocking on door' of NHL, Roope Hintz ready to earn his spot

After a near-seamless transition to the North American game, the young forward is set to make his push with the Stars

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- There was a lot of hype about Stars defense prospect Miro Heiskanen over the weekend at the NHL Prospect Tournament in Traverse City, Michigan. But one national media observer wasn't biting. He was more focused on the other Dallas prospect from Finland whose last name begins with the letter "H."

"Hintz is on the Dallas team this year, right?" he asked a member of the Dallas media. "He's an NHL player."

"He's pushing for a spot," the Dallas media guy answered. "He's close."

And that's where forward Roope Hintz is heading into the 2018-19 season -- on the cusp of the NHL.

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

Why Miro Heiskanen believes he's ready to make NHL leap for Stars

The touted defense prospect has 'all the makings' for Dallas, which plans to bring him along slowly

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

Dallas Stars training camp is less than one month away, and that means it is time for players to start trickling into Frisco to ramp up preparations for the upcoming season. A few players hit the ice this week, including highly touted defense prospect Miro Heiskanen.

Heiskanen, Dallas' first round pick (third overall) in the 2017 NHL Draft, arrived in town Monday and has been skating this week with Stars captain Jamie Benn, goaltender Ben Bishop and a small group of other players.

"I am so excited. It's really nice to be here," Heiskanen said. "I've always been dreaming of playing in the NHL. Now, it can be possible."

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.
