Pivotal Player: Tyler Seguin Shines as centerman in Dallas

The Stars finished first in arguably...

Like many of his teammates, Tyler Seguin has been hanging out at StarCenter ice making some kids’ days (or summers, or lives) as a guest coach at Dallas Stars Summer Hockey Camp.

What Does the Jamie Benn Extension Mean for the Dallas Stars Future Cap Situation?

The Stars captain got a gigantic contract extension, but the Stars are in perfect position to handle it once it kicks in. As we near the depths of the August offseason (albeit with the distraction of the summer Olympics to help see us through this time around) and still await the news of the rumored goalie trades, it's also a good time to start planning ahead. Not just for this fall, though Tyler Seguin seems to be getting back into the Biosteel training regimen according to social media, but to next summer any beyond. Because the marquee move of this Dallas Stars offseason, at least so...
