Dallas Stars Daily Links: Stars Have High Hopes for Philippe Desrosiers, Landon Bow, and Maxime Lagace
The Stars are counting on prospects like Philippe Desrosiers and Landon Bow. Plus, a look at Day 2 of Development Camp, and reasons why the Canucks will miss Dan Hamhuis.
After trading Jack Campbell to the Kings, the Stars are relying on three young goalie prospects to step up and prove themselves. Mike Heika takes a look at Philippe Desrosiers, Maxime Lagace, and Landon Bow and what to expect from the goalies going forward.
"Any time you have three young guys pushing each other, it's a good thing," said Mike Valley, Stars director of goaltending development. "We need someone to step up and become our third guy in line."
For his part, Desrosiers said he's ready to take his game to the next level and prove himself in the AHL.
Desrosiers had a 2.34 GAA and .913 save percentage in Idaho. He said he's ready to battle for more playing time in the AHL.
"You have to be ready every day. You have to work hard," Desrosiers said. "Like [Stars GM] Jim Nill said, 'You have to be an everyday player.' You have to put the work in. ... I want to be ready and prove I'm the guy."
