Development Camp Schedule & Roster Announced

While most NHL players are in full offseason mode, newer prospects and invitees will gather in Dallas the week after the draft for development camp to get familiar with the Stars organization. Typically, these sessions are more about drills and familiarizing players with how the Stars want to play. But it does provide those craving play on-ice a chance to look at the future pipeline for the NHL club in on-ice sessions in some of the hottest days in Texas.

Noteworthy attendees for development camp this year include Tony Calderone, Ty Dellandrea, and Jake Oettinger. Additionally, the 2019 draft class typically gets invitations to camp as well.
