The Traverse City Tournament kicks off this Friday, signaling the start of hockey season is well and truly upon us.
Dallas Stars fans will be particularly interested in this tournament as it’ll be the first time they’ll get to watch Miro Heiskanen in game action on North American ice. Not only will fans be able to see his individual skill, and the skill of other notable Stars prospects, they’ll get a chance to see how the prospect system stacks up against some of the other teams in the league.
