Since his debut last season, Miro Heiskanen has been no stranger to rave reviews league-wide -- and deservedly so.

The third overall pick in the 2017 draft, Heiskanen backed up his hype with sparkling play on the Stars' blueline, leading all rookies in average time on ice (23:07) and all first-year defensemen with both 12 goals and 182 shots on net in 82 games. For his efforts, the 20-year-old earned a nod to All-Star Weekend in San Jose and a place on the NHL's All-Rookie Team.

While Heiskanen's play and future potential has been compared to the likes of Hockey Hall of Famers, his former teammate in Dallas, Ben Lovejoy, may have recently dealt the highest praise yet to the young Finn in his new role as a studio analyst on NHL Network.

by Staff Report @DallasStars / DallasStars.com

Tyler Seguin is upping the ante for the retooled Dallas Stars this season.

Speaking to a group of reporters during BioSteel Camp in Toronto on Tuesday, the superstar center said he is setting the bar "high" for the team, which shored up its scoring depth this offseason with the addition of veterans Joe Pavelski and Corey Perry in free agency.

"We want to raise our expectations," Seguin said. "I think we've had excuses in the past, a lot of new coaches over the last few years, but we know our coaching staff's style now. We established our identity last year and we want to keep building on it."
