Dallas Stars Prospect Update: Winther Suspended, Dickinson Gets Four Points In Three Games


How have the Dallas Stars prospects done in this past week of hockey? Defending Big D is committed to to giving you weekly updates as their seasons progress.


Remi Elie continues to produce for Belleville with three points in his last three games. Two assists came during a 7-5 loss at the hands of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.

Radek Faksa has a single goal in the past three games. This gives him 8 goals on the season, 1 shy of last season's total. The goal came during a 6-3 loss to the Guelph Storm.

Nick Paul had a single assist and a goal over three games. The assist happened during a game against the Guelph Storm, a 7-2 rout of North Bay. He got a goal against the Belleville Bulls and now has 10 points in his past 15 games.

Matej Paulovic played two games for the Petes and went pointless through both of them. He finishes the week with a minus-1 rating. He has only two assist on the season.

Jason Dickinson played three games and had a goal and three assist through them. He got the two assists during his team's 6-3 win over the Kitchener Rangers. His goal came against North Bay and would be the eventual game winner for the Guelph Storm. The final assist came against the London Knights

Gemel Smith had a productive week. He registered an assist against the Windsor Spitfires and had two goals in hi team's second game of the week. He finished the week with a collective minus-4 rating. He is tied for second in goal scoring in the OHL.

Cody Payne has not played a single game for Saginaw this week. I haven't been able to find out whether he suffered an injury or was scratched.


Branden Troock had a single assist over two games for the Seattle Thunderbirds. The assist came during a 3-2 shootout loss to the Tri-City Americans.

Cole Ully played two game this week for the Kamloops Blazers. He got a single goal, the tying goal, in what would be a 7-6 overtime loss against the Everett Silvertips. He finished pointless against the Vancouver Giants.

Dmitry Sinitsyn went pointless and with a even plus-minus rating over three games. This is impressive considering the three games were two different 3-1 losses at the hands of the Prince Albert Raiders and a 7-2 loss to the Edmonton Oil Kings. Many of his teammates had big minus ratings following those three games.

Mike Winther only played in the first game against the Regina Pats and had a single assist on the game winning goal. However, he was given a game misconduct and a major for a check to the head. He has been suspended for four games and therefore won't be in action next week either.


Troy Vance went pointless in three games for the Charlottetown Islanders but racked up 14 penalty minutes in those three games.

Desrosiers played a full single game for the Oceanic, a shootout loss. He let in four goals in 28 shots for a save percentage of 85.7. He finished Sunday's game playing the last period. He saved all eight shots he faced.

Maxime Lagace hasn't played a game this week for Cape Breton.


Alex Guptill played in both of Michigan's games and had a single goal against Boston University. He had nine shots on goal over the course of those two games.

Devin Shore got two assists during Maine's two games against Massachusetts. The two assists came during their 3-2 win.


John Klingberg had a productive week with two points, a goal and an assist in two games for Frolunda. Both came during a 3-2 win over Orebro. Ludwig Bystrom had an assist against HV71 during Farjestad's 5-3 loss. When Klingberg and Bystrom faced each other on Saturday, both went pointless.

Emil Molin is injured and has not played for Brynas this week.

Niklas Hansson got three points in two games this week for Rogle J20. All three points were assists.


I still haven't been able to find any statistics for Aleksi Makela, but I have heard he has returned to action in the Jr. A SM-Liiga.

Henri Kiviaho got his first professional win for KalPa, letting in only a single goal on 13 shots. It was a 2-1 win for KalPa.

Esa Lindell has spent this entire week with Jokerit. He went pointless through the three games.
