This is the latest in a series of updates on the top prospects of the Dallas Stars. This one looks at forward Scott Glennie, who played his first full professional season with the Texas Stars of the AHL.

Glennie, Dallas’ first round pick (8th overall) in 2009, registered 37 points (12 goals, 25 assists) in 70 games for Texas. He missed all but the first couple days of training camp and the first three games of Texas’ season due to a concussion. He missed the last two games of the season with a wrist injury.

“It was a bit of a slow start with the injury there, but I think the second half went pretty well. I got my feet underneath me,” said Glennie. “It’s just getting used to the game. It took me a little while to get used to the pace, how fast and big the guys are. I think I am used to that now.”

Glennie had only two points in his first 13 games, but picked up the pace when Dallas made some roster moves in late November.

“When Tomas Vincour went up (to the NHL), Scott got a lot more ice time and he ran with it,” said Scott White, Texas Stars GM and Dallas’ Director of Minor League Operations. “His game is better. He’s learned what he needs to do to get better. He has some elements that our organization needs – quick, good hands, right shot, has the ability to score. All in all, his improvement has been steady from November on once he got healthy.”

During a stretch that ran from early January to late March, Glennie put up 26 points (8 goals, 18 assists) in 34 games.

“All the games I’ve seen down there, to me, he’s been one of the best players in the game. Until Jack (Campbell) got there, he was our youngest player,” said Les Jackson, Dallas Stars Director of Player Personnel. “He has a good season, not as far as goal scoring, but in the sense of learning how to be a pro, what it takes to show up every day and what it means to put the work in and train to be a good player every night.”

The 21-year-old got his first taste of NHL action in Dallas’ final game of the season, picking up no points and two penalty minutes in 9:35 of playing time.

Glennie, who played center and right wing in Texas this past season, should get a good look at Dallas’ training camp in September.

“I sense he got himself a real good foundation of what it takes to be a pro, and I don’t think he is that far from the NHL,” Jackson said. “He’s got all the tools that fit into the new game. He’s got skill, he’s smart and he’s got scoring ability. It will just be a matter of where we are in the fall. If he goes back to Texas that won’t be a bad thing for him, it will be a good thing. I suspect at the end of the day he’ll come up here and be a good NHL player.”


CEDAR PARK, Texas -- Texas Stars goaltender Jack Campbell said he has decided to pass on invitation to represent the USA at the World Championship.

The 20-year-old netminder said he'd like to take a break after his season ends this weekend.

"I want to get some rest," Campbell said this morning after Texas' optional skate at the Cedar Park Center.

Campbell, Dallas' first round pick (11th overall) in 2010, has had a long season. It began with a couple games at the NHL Prospect Tournament in September and has gone on to include 46 games in juniors, five games at the World Junior championship and ten games so far with the Texas Stars, who play their final two games this weekend.

Campbell went to the World Championship last year, serving as the No. 3 goaltender for the Americans.

Dallas Stars defenseman Alex Goligoski and Stars goaltender Richard Bachman both are on the Team USA roster for the World Championship, which gets underway May 4 in Sweden and Finland.

Scott Glennie to miss final two games of season

The Texas Stars will be without forward Scott Glennie for the final two games of the season. Texas GM Scott White said Glennie injured his wrist in Friday night's game at San Antonio and will miss tonight's home game against Oklahoma City and Sunday's season finale at at Houston.

Glennie, Dallas' first round pick (8th overall) in 2009, has 37 points (12 goals, 25) in 70 games for Texas this season.

Stars send four players to AHL

The Dallas Stars have assigned Brenden Dillon, Scott Glennie, Jordie Benn and Tomas Vincour to the Texas Stars of the AHL. Texas, which will not be in the AHL playoffs this season, has four games left on its schedule.

Here's the release from the Stars:
The Dallas Stars announced today that the club assigned defenseman Brenden Dillon, forward Scott Glennie, defenseman Jordie Benn and forward Tomas Vincour to the Texas Stars, Dallas’ primary affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

Dillon, 21, has played in 72 games for Texas this season, scoring 5 goals and 21 assists for 26 points and 91 penalty minutes. He was signed to a three-year contract as a free agent on March 3, 2011. The 6-2, 198-pound defenseman made his NHL debut on April 7 vs. the St. Louis Blues registering a team-leading six shots and four hits in 19:59 of ice time.

Glennie, 21, has played in 68 games this season for Texas and has 12 goals and 25 assists for 37 points. He made his NHL debut on April 7 vs. The St. Louis Blues earning two hits and two penalty minutes. The 6-1, 180-pound forward from Winnipeg, Manitoba was selected in the first round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft (No. 8 overall).

Benn, 24, collected two assists in his three games for Dallas this season. He became the 10th player in Dallas Stars history to record his first NHL point in his first NHL game. Along with younger brother Jamie Benn, they became the third set of brothers in Dallas Stars history and the sixth in team history to play in an NHL game together.

Vincour, 21, appeared in 47 games for the Dallas Stars this season, collecting five goals, seven assists and six penalty minutes during the 2011-12 campaign. The 6-2, 204-pound forward was Dallas' fifth-round selection (129th overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.


DALLAS -- Defenseman Brenden Dillon made his NHL debut for the Dallas Stars on Saturday night, and he made an impression.

The 21-year-old had a game-high six shots on goal, tied for a game-high four hits and co-led the Stars with three blocked shots in 19:59 of ice time in the Stars’ 3-2 loss to St. Louis.

“It was good. I got the nerves out early,” Dillon said. “On my first shift I took a nice little bump in the corner and that gave me a little wake up call, let me know that I’m in an NHL game. As the game went on, I felt really good. Moving the puck, joining the play, had a good couple of hits and stuff. I thought it went well.”

Dillon, a free agent signing out of the Western Hockey League last year, was paired with Trevor Daley in the game. He saw time on both the power play and the penalty kill.

“It was great. I got everything,” Dillon said. “I can’t thank Gully (Stars coach Glen Gulutzan) and the Stars organization enough for everything. They gave me a great opportunity today.”

And Gulutzan said he thought Dillon made the most of the opportunity.

“I thought his game was strong,” said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan. “I can see he’s made strides from when I had him a year ago (in the AHL). I think you guys can judge for yourselves, but I think he’s going to be right around it come September.”

Glennie makes NHL debut

Forward Scott Glennie, the team’s first round pick (8th overall) in 2009, made his NHL debut Saturday. The 21-year-old played 9:35, had no points, no shots and two hits.

“It was really fun,” Glennie said. “I was a little bit nervous out there, but it was a great experience to get my first NHL game under my belt. I had a lot of fun out there, but it’s too bad we lost. Hopefully I can get in a few more next year.”

Bachman shines

Stars backup goaltender Richard Bachman had a solid showing Saturday, stopping 32 of 35 shots.

“He was very good,” said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan. “I think he has proven himself on the big stage, against the Rangers and LA and games like that. I think he’s proven himself in a tough game like tonight that he’s a mentally strong, capable goalie.”

Bachman ended the season with an 8-5-1 record, 2.77 goals against average and .910 save percentage.

Gulutzan indicated Bachman’s season could be continuing on the international stage.

“I’m pretty sure he is getting invited somewhere here in the next 24 hours,” Gulutzan said. “I think the World Championships are on and that’s a credit to him.”
DALLAS -- Scott Glennie and Brenden Dillon, who will make their NHL debuts tonight, skated with the Dallas Stars this morning at American Airlines Center.

Glennie is one of four first round picks from 2009 that has yet to play in an NHL game. He'll take his name off that list tonight.

“I think everyone has got to do their time," said Glennie. "A lot of guys get up here pretty quick, but it was a fun year in the American League. It didn’t go the way we wanted it to, but now I am up here. I am really excited, a little nervous but I am looking forward to get things going here.”

The 21-year-old is expected to play right wing on a line with Loui Eriksson and Tom Wandell. Glennie, who got off a slow start this season in the AHL because of a concussion, has picked up 28 points (nine goals, 19 assists) over the past 43 games with the Texas Stars.

"It was bit a slow start with the injury, but the second half went pretty well for myself. I got my feet underneath and had a lot of guys help me out," Glennie said. "It was just getting used to the game. It took a while to get used to the pace and how fast and how big guys are. I think I am used to that now."

Dillon, a free agent signing out of the WHL last year, is a big, mobile two-way defenseman. He has 26 points (5 goals, 21 assists) in 72 games with the Texas Stars.

“A little bit of nervousness, but excited and ready to go," said Dillon. "I’ve been waiting my whole life to get to the NHL and to get a crack at it."

The 21-year-old Dillon will be paired with Trevor Daley on defense. He sees it as a good opportunity to show that he ready to push for a roster spot next season.

“Any time you come up and get a chance to play you want to put your best foot forward," he said. "It kind of sucks to be in the situation we’re in, but it is what it is. We’re going to try to end on a positive note and get two points.”

Several Dallas veterans will sit out tonight's game, some due to injury issues. Among those not playing: Steve Ott, Mike Ribeiro, Stephane Robidas, Sheldon Souray, Radek Dvorak, Toby Petersen and Jake Dowell.

Richard Bachman is in goal for the Stars.

Here's the lineup for the Stars tonight.

R. Smith-Benn-Ryder
Eriksson-Wandell-Glennie
Nystrom-Fiddler-Vincour
Morrow-Garbutt-Burish

Dillon-Daley
Goligoski-Larsen
Jordie Benn-Pardy

Bachman
FRISCO, Texas -- Stars fans will get a little glimpse of the future in Saturday night's regular-season finale against the St. Louis Blues at American Airlines Center. Right wing Scott Glennie, the team's first-round pick (eighth overall) in 2009, will make his NHL debut.

So will defenseman Brenden Dillon, a free-agent pick out of the WHL last year. Both those players have spent the season with the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League.

The 21-year-old Glennie has 12 goals and 25 assists in 68 games this season. Glennie got off to a slow start after suffering a concussion in training camp, but he's picked up 28 points (nine goals, 19 assists) over the past 43 games.

Dillon, who is also 21, is a big, mobile, two-way defenseman. He has 26 points (five goals, 21 assists) in 72 games this season.

Reilly Smith, the third-round pick (69th overall) from 2009, will be back in the lineup. Smith, who signed an entry-level contract with Dallas last month, has already appeared in two games with the Stars.

Richard Bachman will get the start in goal.

The Stars will sit some veterans who have been battling through injuries as the Stars battled to get into the playoffs.

"We've had guys taking injections here to get through a game. These same players can get through a practice without it. You won't see a couple of those guys tomorrow," Stars coach Glen Gulutzan said. "Most likely Steve Ott, depending on how he is tomorrow. Radek Dvorak, you guys all know. Guys that you probably didn't know would be [Stephane] Robidas and [Mike] Ribeiro that have been playing injured. Those guys and possibly Brenden [Morrow]. At the end the day, you don't want to give them the needle to play."

Mark Fistric, who injured his groin in Thursday night's game at Nashville, was also getting injections to play prior to last night's injury. He'll be out for Saturday's game.
Dallas Stars forward prospect Austin Smith (5th round/2007) wrapped up his college career today as Colgate lost 3-0 to Cornell in the ECAC consolation game.

Smith, the Dallas native who scored 36 goals in 39 games and is among 10 finalists for the Hobey Baker Award as college hockey’s best player, will begin his pro career next season. There’s a chance Smith could play with the Texas Stars of the AHL the final part of this season to get a head start on his pro career.

Stars goaltending prospect Jack Campbell (1st round/ 2011) could be joining the Texas Stars soon as well. His junior team – Sault Ste. Marie of the Ontario Hockey League – won’t be going to the playoffs and the OHL regular season wraps up this weekend. There’s a good chance Campbell, who will turn pro next season, will head to Cedar Park soon to get an early start on his pro career.

THN ranks the Stars prospects

The Hockey News is out with its Future Watch 2012, which ranks the prospects for the 30 NHL teams.

Goaltender Jack Campbell was ranked 41st among all NHL prospects and defenseman Jamie Oleksiak ranked 59th.

Here’s how THN sees the top 10 prospects for the Dallas Stars.
