Texas Stars from 16-17 dot the roster, including Nick Caamano, Denis Gurianov, Gavin Bayreuther, Chris Martenet, Ondrej Vala and Landon Bow. Niklas Hansson even played a few games for Texas two years ago at the end of the season and will be with Texas this season. He's a top defensive prospect.
Upcoming AHL-only contracted Texas Stars on the roster include Sheldon Dries, Shane Hanna, Eric Sweetman, Max French, and Sam Laberge. Many of the Dallas Stars draft picks on the roster should be expected in Texas in the coming years, including Jason Robertson and John Nyberg. Roope Hintz is another name to watch. The Finnish winger hasn't been on the radar as much since he's played in the SHL for the past few years, but he will make his North American debut with the AHL Stars this season.
