Stars GM Jim Nill believes Patrik Nemeth's experience in the AHL playoffs will be a valuable part of his development.

"Playoff hockey in the American League is tough hockey," Nill said. "It's tough travel — three games in four nights. It's a grind. There have been high-pressure games, overtime games, Game 7s. It's been great for his development — and a lot of others." Nemeth helped the Texas Stars win the Calder Cup in the AHL postseason and he'll compete for an NHL roster spot in the fall. He skated in eight games with Dallas during the regular season and another five in the playoffs last year.
