Dallas Stars prospect Miro Heiskanen will play for Finland at the upcoming World Hockey Championships.

HIFK Helsinki were eliminated the Finnish playoffs on Saturday and they have just one bronze medal game remaining against TPS Turku before their season is officially over. The 18-year-old defenseman was the third overall pick from the 2017 NHL Draft and had nine points in 12 playoffs games while leading the team in minutes played. He'll look to push for a roster spot with the Stars next season.

Ken Hitchcock has decided to retire from coaching.

Hitchcock is bringing an end to one of the most successful coaching careers in the history of the NHL. He compiled an 823-506-88-119 record with the Dallas Stars, Philadelphia Flyers, Columbus Blue Jackets, and St. Louis Blues. He won the Stanley Cup with Dallas in 1999 and the Jack Adams Award in 2012. His 823 wins are also the third most ever by a bench boss, behind only Joel Quenneville (884) and Scotty Bowman (1,244). He will continue to serve the Dallas Stars as a consultant.

Jason Spezza has one more season left on a four-year contract that carries a $7.5 million cap hit.

Spezza could be a buyout or trade candidate if the Stars don't want to have him back in 2018-19. "I want to sit down with Jason and see where he is at. I need to talk to the coaching staff and see where they are at with him," said Dallas GM Jim Nill on Monday. "He's got one year left, he's still a pretty good player. Is he a good fit for us, or is that something we need to change? I need to evaluate that." Spezza only produced eight goals and 26 points in 78 games this past campaign. He only had one goal after Jan. 16 and had his ice time drastically reduced.

Remi Elie has been sent to AHL Texas.

The Dallas Stars' season is over, so Elie may as well get some additional playing time with Texas. He had six goals and 14 points in 72 games with Dallas in 2017-18.

Dallas has confirmed the signing of Tony Calderone to a two-year, entry-level contract.

University of Michigan captain Tony Calderone has signed a contract with the Dallas Stars.

Mike McKenna has gone back to the minors.

McKenna made one start with Dallas and surrendered five goals in a 5-3 loss to Anaheim. He had a 1-1-0 record with a 2.97 goals-against average and .900 save percentage at the NHL level in two appearances.
Apr 8 - 4:14 PM

Dillon Heatherington has been assigned to the minors.

Heatherington made his sixth appearance of the year on Saturday, but logged just 6:11 of ice time against Los Angeles in the Stars' regular-season finale.
Apr 8 - 4:10 PM

John Klingberg registered an assist in a 4-2 win over Los Angeles on Saturday.

With that, Klingberg has finished the season with eight goals and 67 points in 82 games. His 59 assists are a career-high for him and it's also the most among defensemen in 2017-18. John Carlson recorded one more point than him though, so Klingberg finished just shy of winning the blueliner scoring race.
Apr 8 - 6:26 AM

Jamie Benn set the franchise record for the fastest hat trick on Saturday.

Benn netted his three goals over a span of just 5:17 minutes in the first period. Bill Goldsworthy previously held that record with three goals over 5:32 minutes on Dec. 11, 1973. As weird coincidence, both hat tricks were scored against the Los Angeles Kings. Dallas' campaign is over and Benn finished with 36 goals and 79 points in 82 contests.
Apr 8 - 6:23 AM

Kari Lehtonen made 34 saves in a 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.

Lehtonen earned just his third victory in his last 12 games for the Stars on Saturday night. The Finn's season record for 2017-18 is 15-14-3 with a 2.56 GAA and a .912 save percentage.
Apr 8 - 2:16 AM

Jamie Benn scored thrice in a 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.

Benn scored a natural hat-trick in the first period of Saturday night's victory, as the Stars raced out to a 4-0 lead. Alec Martinez scored twice for the Kings, but it wasn't enough to secure a win over Dallas. Benn ends his season with 36 goals and 79 points in 82 games this season.
Apr 8 - 2:12 AM

Remi Elie will miss Saturday's game due to a lower-body injury.

Elie notched six goals and eight assists in 72 games this season. He only appeared in 18 games with the big club last year.
Apr 7 - 10:24 PM

The Dallas Stars will have Kari Lehtonen in goal for tonight's regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Kings.

The Stars fell apart down the stretch of the season, losing 10 of their last 13 games to miss out on the post-season. Lehtonen is not a recommended start in fantasy games for tonight's slate of games. He has a 14-14-3 record with a 2.58 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage this season. The 34-year-old netminder is an unrestricted free-agent at the end of the season and tonight's start is expected to be his last in a Dallas Stars uniform.
