For Stars and Ben Bishop, it's now about experience and athleticism, not past injuries

BOISE, Idaho -- Ben Bishop loves the action. It's part of the reason he became a goaltender in the first place as a child growing up in St. Louis. Bishop initially played forward, but didn't want to leave the ice. So add in his 6-foot-7 frame and his agility, and playing goalie was a perfect match.For the Stars goaltender recently, though, his career has been dotted with long periods of inaction at inopportune times. A knee injury ended Bishop's season prematurely last year, just as the Stars fell out of playoff contention with an eight-game losing streak. In the previous three seasons, he...

Anton Khudobin On Nickname, Harry Potter, And Being A Backup Goaltender In Dallas

Anton Khudobin On Nickname, Harry Potter, And Being A Backup Goaltender In Dallas

Getting to know one of the new signees from this offseason. When Anton Khudobin was 17, Alexander Radulov gifted him with the nickname “Dobby”. A decade and a half later, the two are now teammates on the Dallas Stars hockey club. Khudobin signed in Dallas because of the level of interest the organization expressed in the 32 year old. He said he told his agent that he wanted to sign with a playoff team, and his agent listened - Khudobin believes the Stars are there. He’s ready to be a backup, exuding a sense of confidence in the role he’s going to play behind Ben Bishop this season....

Wednesday Links: Bishop Faces A Key Career Season

“Healthy and confident” at 32, he’s ready to push past the goalie aging plateau. Plus, Blake Wheeler’s new deal, Miro Heiskanen’s new interview, and more.

Stargazing Episode #73: The Goaltending Question

In which we discuss the perennial puzzler that is the Stars’ net. In part four of our summer quadrilogy, David and Jessica tackle the net.

Where does Philippe Desrosiers fit in? And can any of our minor-league guys rise to the occasion in a worst-case...

With a potential work stoppage, the Stars could guarantee a lot of money for games that might not happen if they sign Tyler Seguin

Tyler Seguin is still unsigned which is a bit of a problem. He's kind of good, and the Stars kind of need him to stick around. After this coming season he'll hit free agency. His next contract presents a problem the Stars have only had to really face with Jamie Benn and to lesser extents Ben Bishop and Alex Radulov: negotiating against the next coming labor stoppage.The NHL and NHLPA both have opt outs of the collective bargaining agreement in September of 2019 for a deal that otherwise expires in 2022. If either side opts out a new deal would need to be agreed upon before the 2020-2021...
