TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- Ty Dellandrea showed the spectrum of his game Friday.
The 19-year-old forward made a slick assist on a Nicholas Porco goal in the first period, was an important penalty killer in the middle of the game, and then took the final faceoff as the Minnesota Wild prospects were trying to get the tying goal with an extra skater.
All of that contributed to a 2-1 win for the Stars in the opening game of the 2019 NHL Prospect Tournament at Centre ICE Arena. Dellandrea was an important part of an important win, but Stars assistant general manager Scott White said it shouldn't be unexpected.
"Ty Dellandrea was Ty Dellandrea," White said. "That's what you get from him every night."
