Typically development camp is immediately after the draft in July, but again, COVID threw off the offseason in a major way. The Dallas Stars announced this week that development camp will take place next weekend as they also released the roster.
In conversation with Texas GM Scott White earlier this week, he told 100 Degree Hockey that the same roster for development camp will head to Traverse City for the prospects tournament the following weekend.
The roster is full of players expected to skate for the Texas Stars this coming season, as it always is. The roster is almost all Dallas Stars existing prospects or Texas Stars signees with the exception of Luka Profaca. While it's rare, don't rule out a deal for Profaca, as that is the exact route that Ben Gleason followed to earn an ELC with Dallas.
Here's the release:
The Dallas Stars announced today the tentative roster and schedule for the club's 2021 Development Camp. The camp roster currently features 24 players, including 15 forwards, seven defensemen and two goaltenders.
The team's annual Development Camp will run from Friday, Sept. 10 to Monday, Sept. 13 at Comerica Center, the team's practice facility (2601 Avenue of the Stars, Frisco, Texas 75034). Media will be permitted to be attend on-ice sessions and conduct in-person interviews during camp. No fans will be permitted to attend.
Following the conclusion of Development Camp on Monday, the group will depart for Traverse City, Mich., to participate in the 2021 NHL Prospect Tournament.
