July 1 is right around the corner and the Dallas Stars are expected to be a significant player once again. Here are some links to keep you updated on all the rumors and reports circling around the league as we approach the big day.

The 2019 NHL Free Agent signing period is coming in hot, and it looks as though the Dallas Stars will once again be a central player. Would you have guessed any differently?

With 11 a.m. CT on Monday, July 1 marking the official opening of Free Agency in the league, there will be a lot to watch out for as the window opens. In addition to that, the storylines in the days leading up to July 1 offer plenty of speculation, rumoring, and intrigue. And it’s not just for the Stars.

While the landing spots of Joe Pavelski and Mats Zuccarello are sure to keep Dallas fans interested, the two stars make up a small part of the large Free Agency picture that is coming into focus as the final hours of June tick away. In the first few hours of Sunday alone, a handful of players were traded or bought out (including Dallas Stars forward Valeri Nichushkin) as teams prepare to dive into July 1 with their own respective game plans.
