Dallas Stars Select Conner Roulette 111th Overall

The center/left wing, who won gold with Canada’s U18 team, looks like a prospect worth betting on.

The Dallas Stars had a great opportunity to do some up-close scouting during the 2021 IIHF Under-18 World Championships in Frisco. And they have another NHL Draft selection to show for it in Conner Roulette.

The Stars chose another member of Canada’s gold medal-winning squad with their fourth-round pick at 111th overall. DBD prospects maven Derek Neumeier offered his assessment of the 5-11 center/left wing, who racked up six goals and six assists in 12 games with the Seattle Thunderbirds in 2021:

Roulette scored 19 goals and 20 assists on his way to being named the WHL’s 2019-20 Rookie of the Year. He also ran up a consensus as one of the best players available as Round 4 began.

In addition, the Winnipeg native gives the Stars’ Indigenous fans a hero to root for.
