Hockey News ranks Dallas prospects
By Mark Stepneski
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.
- Jack Campbell, G (Windsor, OHL)
- Jamie Oleksiak, D (Saginaw, OHL)
- Alex Chiasson, RW (Boston University, Hockey East)
- Scott Glennie, C (Texas, AHL)
- Philip Larsen, D (Texas, AHL)
- Reilly Smith, RW (Miami, CCHA)
- Patrik Nemeth, D (AIK, Sweden)
- Brett Ritchie, RW (Sarnia, OHL)
- John Klingberg, D (Jokerit, Finland)
- Tyler Beskorowany, G (Texas, AHL)
