Despite heading into the offseason, things are far from slowing down in the NHL. Sunday marks one of the most important days of the year for each of the league’s 30 teams: the Draft. Teams around the hockey world continue to reinforce already-successful teams, and vote on one of the Stars’ newest members in Sports Day’s poll for the area’s most impressive young star.

Not only did the team sign brothers Trevor and Tyler Ludwig to contracts for the 2013-2014 season, it also made a point to bring back some of the most influential members of the organization. Welcome back Steven Martinson and Richard Matvichuk!

Dallas has proven to be a difficult market in which to develop a solid, consistent, reliable fan base. But some of the team’s strongest players are making themselves known, and are being held to standards the area’s most popular teams: the Cowboys.
