The Dallas Stars have undergone quite the transformation at forward since Jim Nill took over as general manager following the 2012-13 season.
In two offseasons, he’s acquired two top-six centers in Tyler Seguin and Jason Spezza to lessen the scoring burden on captain and first-line left winger Jamie Benn. He also signed top-nine winger Ales Hemsky as a free agent last summer....
The Dallas Stars have found something pretty special in the combination of Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn.
The two players were fine young talents before being united, but ever since Seguin was acquired by the Stars in the summer before the 2013-14 season, they’ve turned into one of the NHL’s most dynamic duos.
Seguin and Benn are at it again this season...
The Dallas Stars currently sit fifth in the Central Division with 49 points (20-17-7), just two points behind Calgary for the final wild card playoff spot. Considering that the Stars had dug a double-digit deficit from playoff contention earlier in the season, this shows the resolve and fortitude to make a run in the second half of […]

CHICAGO (AP) -- Cody Eakin and the Dallas Stars traveled to Chicago three times this season, and each time they had to face the Blackhawks on the second part of games on consecutive days.
They found a way to grab the third one.
Eakin had two goals and an assist, and the Stars scored three times in the third period of a 6-3 victory over the slumping Blackhawks on Sunday.

DALLAS---The Dallas Stars almost gave away yet another game at American Airlines Center, blowing a 3-0 lead against the Washington Capitals on Sasturday night. But in the end, the Stars, thanks largely to third-period goals from Antoine Roussel and captain Jamie Benn some 16 seconds apart, hung on for a 5-4 victory, finishing their three-game homestand at 2-1-0.
"The response was...
Evidently, something very "top secret" went down tonight in Dallas at the American Airlines Center.
After going up 3-0, the Dallas Stars gave up two goals to the visiting Washington Capitals.
But, during the 2nd period intermission, when the scoring summary for the game was flashed on the Jumbotron, the names of those associated were struck from the record.
Evidently, the CIA had...
[Inside the Dallas Stars Locker Room]

Ruff: I’m sorry? This is good! You get to join the All Stars!
Jamie Benn: Yo, wait, hold up. What team am I on then?
Ruff: The Stars
Benn: Ok, then where is Tyler going.
Ruff: The All Star game.

7:30 p.m. CT, February 27, 2014
American Airlines Center; Dallas, Texas
Hurricanes (26-23-9, 61 pts)
While tonight might be the post-Olympic game for the Stars, the Hurricanes have already played (and lost) in their first game back.
Carolina’s 3-2 loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday was significant as it was Cam Ward’s...

Some nice news out of the Stars camp this afternoon as it was announced that they re-signed Colton Sceviour to a two-year deal.
The 24-year-old is in the midst of a fantastic season with the Texas Stars and leads the AHL with 31 goals. His 61 points on the season puts him third in the league (and second on the team).
Hopefully this will give him a chance next season, if not...
After 42 games this season, the Dallas Stars have been a bit of a disappointment. After a return to the playoffs last season, the future looked bright for a team which boasts players like Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn. The off season brought even more press when Dallas traded for Jason Spezza and signed Ales […]

Pretty sure he could take this spot most nights this year. Absolute stud this year. Fancy stats were nothing to write home about but then...
Now that the NHL has hosted an outdoor game successfully in California, will the league target southern areas such as Florida or Texas? Gary Bettman has already rained on the idea of Florida hosting a Winter Classic or Stadium Series game, but is Texas still a possibility? According to Dallas Stars president Jim Lites, an outdoor game in Texas is “probably a ways off.”
DALLAS -- Kari Lehtonen made 31 saves for his 30th shutout, Brett Ritchie scored in his first NHL game and the Dallas Stars beat the Arizona Coyotes 6-0 on Wednesday night.
Cody Eakin and Jamie Benn each had a goal and an assist, and Alex Goligoski assisted twice as the Stars had their biggest margin of victory this season.
The game was scoreless in the second period when Ritchie...
For Finland, this game meant more then anything. The 2014 World Junior champions, Finland is hosting the 2016 World Juniors, and getting relegated could have meant that they would end up losing the event. The team last played in the relegation round in 2013, a year before they won it all in Sweden last year.
With that in mind, Finland began the game strong. With three minutes off...
Coming into this 2014-15 NHL season, the Dallas Stars were the sexy pick by many to make some serious noise out of the Western Conference. Not that those types of predictions weren’t justified. Coming off of a season in which they improved a great deal off of their brief rebuild, they made some very notable additions, including the likes of Jason Spezza and Ales Hemsky, among...
Tyler Seguin has mastered the art of multitasking.
The Stars center was less-than-pleased by where one referee decided to set up camp during a Dallas second-period power play Sunday night against the Edmonton Oilers, and Seguin made his displeasure known. The superstar spent a good chunk of the man-advantage chirping the referee –quite politely, we might add — all the while...

Here’s what Ruff had to say, as seen in the Dallas News:
“I don’t buy that on back-to-back games our energy was low, I’m tired of that one....
