Hockey News ranks Dallas prospects

The Hockey News 2011-12 Yearbook put out an updated list of the top ten prospects for each NHL team. Below is a look at THN’s take on the prospects of the Dallas Stars.

It’s a pretty good list. I might juggle the order a little differently in some cases, but I don’t think the ranking is that big a deal. I think guys like Richard Bachman and Brenden Dillon could be under consideration for the top ten as well, but I don’t know who I’d take off. It would be a tough call. The bottom line is the Stars have some pretty good prospects in the pipeline.

The players are listed with their expected 2011-12 team.

  1. Jack Campbell, G (Windsor, OHL)

  2. Jamie Oleksiak, D (Saginaw, OHL)

  3. Alex Chiasson, RW (Boston University, Hockey East)

  4. Scott Glennie, C (Texas, AHL)

  5. Philip Larsen, D (Texas, AHL)

  6. Reilly Smith, RW (Miami, CCHA)

  7. Patrik Nemeth, D (AIK, Sweden)

  8. Brett Ritchie, RW (Sarnia, OHL)

  9. John Klingberg, D (Jokerit, Finland)

  10. Tyler Beskorowany, G (Texas, AHL)
