The Dallas Stars opened NHL training camp this week down in Cedar Park and things have gone relatively well to kick off the Ken Hitchcock era. The Stars are healthy, the camp has a quick pace, and the players seem to be responding well to the new coaching staff.
Individual players have also grabbed our attention. Justin Dowling has made a case for an NHL spot in a scrimmage, R.J. Umberger is here, and Nick Caamano is looking like a steal of a fifth-round pick. Julius Honka has been one of the talks of training camp, and we still don’t know how the defense will shake out.
Ryan Satkowiak and I sat down to discuss these topics and more in the podcast on Sunday night.
