Stephen Johns is feeling "a little banged up," according to coach Jim Montgomery.

Johns received a maintenance day on Sunday as a result, as the team is being cautious with him during training camp. The Stars expect him to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Adam Mascherin was among Dallas' 15 roster cuts on Sunday.

Mascherin, Nick Caamano, Tony Calderone, Philippe Desrosiers, Ben Gleason, Niklas Hansson, Joel L'Esperance, Chris Martenet, Colton Point and Ondrej Vala have been assigned to AHL Texas. Shane Hanna, Sam Laberge, Colin Markison, Robbie Payne and James Phelan were released from their tryouts.

Gavin Bayreuther has played in all three of Dallas' preseason games so far.

Bayreuther probably won't crack the team's roster going into 2018-19, but he could be the first call-up if injuries occur. "I think because of his shot and his hockey sense, he's going to be a second power play option [in the future]," coach Jim Montgomery said. "But a big part of the way we're going to play is being able to get back and make good decisions. He does that. He does it in the neutral zone as well. His defensive side of the game has really picked up."

Dennis Gurianov scored a goal during Saturday’s 4-3 preseason loss to the Florida Panthers.

Gurianov found his way into the crease and snuck one in behind James Reimer for Dallas’ first goal of the night. Gurianov didn’t necessarily regress last season, but he didn’t improve in the AHL. However, he has so far looked like a different player at camp and bigger things should be expected from the Russian forward this year. Expect to see him start in the AHL and be one of the first guys called up if he can carry over this momentum.

Tyler Seguin was on the ice with his Dallas teammates for Saturday morning's practice.

The Stars held Seguin out of Friday's session because he was a little nicked up, according Dallas coach Jim Montgomery. There doesn't appear to be anything to worry about, Seguin owners.

Miro Heiskanen scored a goal during Thursday's 3-1 preseason win over the Minnesota Wild.

Heiskanen gave the Stars 1-0 lead at the 5:31 mark of the opening frame. He finished the night with a plus-1 rating, one shot on goal and two blocked shots in 23:23 of ice time. The 19-year-old is the top prospect in the organization. The third overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft could very well start the season the Stars' blue line. Justin Dowling and Radek Faksa also found the back of the net for the Stars on Thursday.

John Klingberg was paired with Miro Heiskanen in Tuesday's exhibition match against St. Louis.

They have the potential to be a dynamic duo for the Stars. However, it's unclear if they will see much time together during the regular season. Klingberg formed a solid pairing with Esa Lindell last year. Lindell played with Julius Honka in Tuesday's contest.

Dallas has signed Ty Dellandrea to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Dellandrea produced 27 goals and 59 points in 67 games for the OHL's Flint Firebirds last season. He was selected with the 13th overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft.

Jason Spezza scored the game-winning goal on Tuesday night as the Dallas Stars beat the St. Louis Blues 5-3 in preseason action.

After three goals and a 2-1 St. Louis lead after 40 minutes of hockey, the Stars and Blues combined for four goals in just over seven minutes to begin the third period. The last of those four goals belonged to Spezza with 12:57 left in the period. He scored from his backhand near the side of the net after taking a nice pass from Nichushkin on the rush. For Spezza, the goal is hopefully a sign for the upcoming season as the 15-year veteran looks to rebound from a disastrous 2017-18 campaign, which saw him register only eight goals and 26 points in 78 games. Given his center-only eligibility and the depth of the position in fantasy leagues, it’s probably not worth using a draft pick on Spezza, but it would be wise to keep an eye out in case he does in fact have a bounce-back season.
Sep 18 - 11:42 PM

Miro Heiskanen has stood out for Dallas coach Jim Montomery early at training camp.

"Oh, Heiskanen, Jesus," Montgomery said. "Can he ever skate? The one time, he got the puck on a pass from Spezza on a 2-on-1, I actually thought he was supposed to be the defenseman defending it, he was so far up the ice. The big line today I thought took their game to another level." He has been a quick learner at training camp and is poised to play in his first NHL season in 2018-19.
Sep 17 - 11:20 AM

Julius Honka is excited to have a fresh start with new Stars coach Jim Montgomery.

Honka wants to land a permanent spot on Dallas after he was in and out of the lineup as well as up and down from the minors last season. "I think the biggest thing is I want to be myself more," Honka said. "I really haven't had a chance to bring my best out of me yet. I'm ready. It was a good summer, I feel healthy and ready to go." He has been working with Marc Methot at training camp.
Sep 17 - 11:17 AM

Ben Bishop is ready for training camp after recovering from a knee injury.

"The (left) knee feels great," Bishop said Tuesday. "We've had some long days here pushing it really hard, and I haven't had any soreness or anything that goes along with it. I don't see there being any setbacks. Kind of get back in there, get your feet wet again. Kind of get used to that game speed, those rushes and more of those game scenarios. You can practice as much as you want to practice, but it doesn't compare to a game." He was encouraged to work on conditioning this off-season and is eager to build on last year's success.
Sep 13 - 3:49 PM

Tyler Seguin has agreed to an eight-year contract extension worth $9.85 million per season.

Seguin has one more season left on his current deal, which carries a cap hit of $5.75 million. Since 2013-14 when he joined the Stars, he has the second-most goals in the NHL with 173 over 387 contests. Seguin amassed 40 goals and 78 points in 82 games last season.
Sep 13 - 1:11 PM

Ben Gleason has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Dallas Stars.

Gleason produced nine goals and 48 points in 63 games for the OHL's Hamilton Bulldogs in 2017-18. He also added 18 points in 21 playoff contests.
Sep 13 - 12:19 PM

Sources indicate that Dallas is close to a new contract with Tyler Seguin.

TSN's Darren Dreger is reporting that the sense is that negotiations between the two sides have reached a "pivotal spot" and there's still some work to do. Seguin can become an unrestricted free agent after the 2018-19 season.
