The Dallas Stars announced their roster for training camp which starts this Saturday in Prince Edward Island. The full list is posted here, but here are some of the notables for Texas Stars fans:
- Scott McCulloch - Signed last year to a 1 year deal with the Texas Stars, the young forward seems to be getting a look with the big club. Often times though, these training camps are ways for clubs to evaluate talent for their minor league teams as well, so expectations should be tempered on that front.
- Travis Morin and Greg Rallo - Not to toot my own horn, but at some point last year I predicted that Morin and Greg Rallo would both get looks at NHL training camps this year. Luckily for us, both are getting looks at Dallas. Morin is already signed with Dallas and Rallo with Texas.
- Matt Tassone - The one-time Stars draft pick is now with the Texas Stars. Based on his performance in the AHL, expect Dallas to re-evaluate the forward.
- Jordie Benn - The defenseman, the older brother of Jamie Benn, played all season last year with the Allen Americans. It will be interesting to see whether Texas or Idaho takes a look at him.
Others who played for Texas that are on the roster include Aaron Gagnon, Luke Gazdic, Michael Neal, Ray Sawada, Colton Sceviour, Mathieu Tousignant, Francis Wathier, Maxime Fortunus, Brad Lukowich, Matt Stephenson, Richard Bachman, and Brent Krahn. Those on the roster expected to be with Texas this season include Ondrej Roman, Tomas Vincour, Severin Blindenbacher, Jace Coyle, Guillaume Monast, and Tyler Beskorowany.
