The Dallas Stars have a very strong future blueline…but that’s about it. However they do have some forward stand outs in Nichushkin and Ritchie. Campbell you can never count out as his potential is still there despite his struggles in pro.

Dickinson had a very impressive year in the OHL this year. He then gained his 1st pro experience playing a handful of the remaining games of the season and he did not lose a step. Dickinson is a player you need to watch next season. If he can keep this up, you could turn a lot of heads and be a great surprise for the Stars.

Remi Elie also had an impressive OHL season. A trade part way through the year moved him to the Erie Otters where he played the remainder of the season. ElieĀ and the rest of the Otters brought Erie to the OHL finals where they lost to the Generals.

Faksa had a bit of a struggle season in the AHL this year recording 10 pts in 32 games. The previous 1st round pick did show flashes, and could return to form next season, at least that’s what the Stars hope. Faksa is known for his 2-way play in the OHL, but didn’t really show that this season despite being on a pretty good Texas Stars crew.

This list contains any skater below 100gp in the regular season and under the age of 26. For goalies it is under 50gp in the regular season and under the age of 26. Ranks 11-20 are on the 2nd page.
