In just two short weeks, the Dallas Stars will be back on the ice as they look to get back to the Western Conference Finals and possibly make the Stanley Cup Finals. It’s been a long offseason of waiting for hockey to return and it’s almost over. What’s unique about this preseason schedule is that the Stars will be playing only teams from the Central Division. They will also have two neutral site games that they will play as well. Let’s take a look at the preseason schedule for the Dallas Stars.
Dallas Stars Preseason Schedule: Week 1
They will kick things off by taking on the Arizona Coyotes on September 24th down in Cedar Park, Texas. This will conclude the Stars kicking off preseason hockey down where the prospects play near Austin, Texas. They will be going up against some tough prospects the Coyotes have. Logan Cooley, Dylan Guenther, and recent first-round selection Dimitri Simashev will most likely get some playing time in this matchup.
The Stars will return to Frisco for the remainder of their training camp as they host the Minnesota Wild on September 26th. This could be an interesting matchup considering the bad blood between both teams in the playoffs last season.
I doubt we will see many of the Starters for the Stars in this game. Wild prospects Marco Rossi and Brock Faber are prospects to watch out for in this matchup. It will also be interesting to see Logan Stankoven go up against his former Blazers’ teammate Caedan Bankier in this matchup as well.
The Stars wrap up the week by traveling up to take on the St. Louis Blues in Kansas City at the Cable Dahmer Arena. This will be the final game at a neutral site for the Stars this preseason. It’s going to be interesting to watch this game because the Blues have so many prospects fighting for the few open roster spots remaining. Stars will need to be on their toes for this game.
Dallas Stars Preseason Schedule: Week 2
In the second and final week of preseason hockey, fans will start seeing more of the players who will most likely make the team. The Stars will start their final week of preseason hockey with a home-and-home against the Colorado Avalanche starting on the road. I would keep an eye on this matchup because this is where Pete DeBoer will start messing around with possible lines for Opening Night against the St. Louis Blues.
The Stars will finish up the preseason with another game against the Blues at Home and a game against the Wild on the road. Stars’ fans, we have almost made it to the finish line and the light at the end of the tunnel is brighter than ever. I can’t wait to cover Dallas Stars hockey again for this site for a third year. Let’s make it a great season and hopefully the Stars can make some more playoff drama and go win the Stanley Cup this season.
