It's finally back. Real, honest-to-goodness organized hockey starts today in Traverse City, Michigan. The annual prospects tournament starts the season for Dallas prospects, many of whom will be playing for Texas at some point this season. You can find the full roster here. Texas Stars head coach Derek Laxdal will coach the prospects with assistance from Texas assistant Karl Taylor and Steelheads head coach Neil Graham.

For the next four days, Dallas hits the ice for practice each morning and a game in the afternoon. Tomorrow's opponent will be the Chicago Blackhawks' prospect team. While the action is not televised or broadcast in any way, you can usually follow @StarsInsideEdge on Twitter for information and obsessively refresh the gamesheets to see in-game stats and scoring lines.

The full schedule is accessible here. All times are Eastern.
