Dallas Stars

The Dallas Stars are a professional ice hockey team based in Dallas, Texas. They are members of the Central Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL). The team was founded during the 1967 NHL expansion as the Minnesota North Stars, based in Bloomington, Minnesota. Before the beginning of the 1978–79 NHL season, the team merged with the Cleveland Barons after the league granted them permission due to each team's respective financial struggles.

    In-depth film study: Inside the mind of an NHL player as he reviews game film, featuring Taylor Fedun

    Editor's note: This story was originally published in February 2019. We're bringing it back as we look ahead to the 2019-2020 Dallas Stars season. It's about 15 hours after the Dallas Stars snapped the NHL's longest active winning streak, and Taylor Fedun grabs a light green-encased iPad and a seat in the four-row media room in the Stars' practice facility in Frisco. The defenseman helped the Stars beat the Blues the night before, a 5-2 win on Thursday night that ended St. Louis' 11-game winning streak, and a game in which he played 14:48 and in all situations. It was part of an unexpected season for Fedun in Dallas after he started the season with Buffalo's AHL affiliate in Rochester before

    Inside the offseason training program and the gym that helped build Stars center Tyler Seguin

    Editor's note. This story was originally published on Nov. 15, 2018. TORONTO -- Tucked away in the north end of a high school rink in Toronto, 5 miles removed from the Scotiabank Arena and in relative anonymity in the suburbs, is the starting point for one of Tyler Seguin's longest relationships in hockey. A pair of doors located beyond the goal at St. Michael's College School leads to an unimpressive but integral setup for Seguin each summer. They reveal a small weight room, painted red on the bottom half of the walls, white on the top half and connected by a metal ceiling that looks more like hurricane shutters than they do a training facility for top NHL players. The six hanging lights are

    Bill Guerin named new Wild GM, becomes latest ex-Star employed by Minnesota this offseason

    After a career-high 41-goal season in 2001-02 with the Boston Bruins, the Stars signed Guerin to a five-year contract. Guerin struggled in his first year in Dallas despite the team having success under first-year coach Dave Tippett en route to a 111-point season which earned them the President's Trophy. In Guerin's second season, he put up a career-high 69 points followed by a 40-point year in 2005-06.  After the 2005-06 season, the Stars bought out the final season of Guerin's contract. Guerin played the next season with the St. Louis Blues, where he was named a Western Conference All-Star.  Guerin is the third player who has previously suited up for the Stars to join the Wild this offseason,

    Dallas Stars Daily Links: Andrew Cogliano Looks Like A Bounceback Candidate

    There's more than one former Anaheim Ducks forward who's looking for a bounceback season with the Dallas Stars in 2019-20. Andrew Cogliano is used to producing 30 or more points per season, and odds are that no one expects more from him than he does from himself. Stars senior staff writer Mike Heika says that Cogliano's basic specs – “small, but strong and a heck of a skater” – make him a good fit for the Stars' blueprint. Where he will fit into it depends on whether he can return to his career form: The former first-round pick for Edmonton has been a model of consistency in Anaheim, producing 30-plus points four times in a span of five seasons (he had 29 in the other). But he had a big dropoff

    Finland, loose laces and dull blades: How Stars defenseman Miro Heiskanen developed into an elite skater

    Editor's note: This story originally published at on Jan. 24, 2019.  On a fall Thursday morning in Boise, Idaho, in the unblemished shine of a new season, the shadow of past failings and the promise of a new savior, Miro Heiskanen arrived. He was the teenager from Finland too prized to part with in trade negotiations, whose adolescence radiated through his boyish face and soft-spoken voice. Heiskanen was the 19-year-old present the Stars were waiting to unwrap, to see if his skills could translate to the NHL and if he could become the next great Dallas defenseman. He unfurled his skillset quickly and easily during training camp in Boise: the poise, the hockey sense and, of course, the skating.
