My name is George Royle and I am a big Dallas Stars fan from across the pond in the UK. I have played the game for 10 years and have played regional level hockey over here. The speed of the game is amazing and you have to respect all of the athletes in the NHL.
With the lockout ending, I have chosen the perfect time to join FanSided and Blackout Dallas as a staff writer. Training camps have commenced and the action is just around the corner!
On the current Stars roster, my favourite players are Jamie Benn and Kari Lehtonen. They are both immensely talented and watching them play is something to look forward to.
The great #9, Mike Modano, is my favourite Star of all time. I admire the talent and passion he played the game with, as well as his high levels of loyalty. He is the man who got me into the NHL and supporting the Dallas Stars.
My main role on Blackout Dallas will be covering the Stars, but I will also be covering a few of the other hockey teams in Texas such as the Allen Americans.
I look forward to working on a website as big as Fansided, and I hope you enjoy my work. Here is to a successful 2013 campaign for Gulutzan and his team!
