Shawn Horcoff may not be back with the Stars next season.

He can become an unrestricted free agent in July and Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News believes that the two sides will go their separate ways. Of course, GM Jim Nill could leave the door open for Horcoff to return, especially if he agrees to take a pay cut.

Jamie Benn is progressing well from surgery earlier this month to both of his hips.

Benn is doing rehab as per schedule and should be ready to participate in training camp without restrictions. That's good news for those of you who own the Stars' captain after his breakout season in which he led the NHL in scoring. Ales Hemsky and Trevor Daley, who also both had hip surgeries, are also progressing in schedule.

Tyler Seguin led the World Hockey Championships in goals with nine in 10 games.

He racked up 36 shots at the tournament and scored five of his goals on the power play. Oddly enough, Seguin didn't get any assists while play for Canada. Still, his efforts helped Canada win the gold medal.

Jason Spezza was named the top forward at the 2015 World Hockey Championship.

Not only did Spezza win gold with Team Canada, but he also led the entire tournament in scoring with six goals and 14 points. Brent Burns (Team Canada) was named the tournament's best defenseman, while Pekka Rinne (Finland) was named the tournament's top goaltender.

Through Friday's off-day, Jason Spezza sits atop the scoring table at the World Hockey Championship.

Through eight games, the Dallas Stars center has five goals and 13 points for Team Canada. While one normally wouldn't combine NHL regular season and international stats, it's worth noting that through 90 combined games Spezza has 20 goals and 70 points. The last time Spezza recorded that many points during the NHL regular season was 2011-12 with Ottawa when he tied a career high with 34 goals and totaled 84 points in 80 games.

Jamie Benn plans to stay in North Texas over the summer.

Benn would typically go home to Victoria, British Columbia, but he thinks staying put will improve his chances of smoothly rehabbing from two hip surgeries. "I've got one shot to do this right, and I don't want to mess it up, so I want to stay around all of the trainers and doctors and make sure I have the best care possible," Benn said. Despite his hip problems, Benn had 35 goals and 87 points in 82 contests in 2014-15.

Tyler Seguin netted a hat trick in Canada's 9-0 destruction of Belarus on Thursday at the quarterfinals of the World Hockey Championships.

Seguin is tied for the tournament lead with eight goals in eight games. Brent Burns was the other offensive star of the game with two goals and four points. Ryan O'Reilly posted two goals and one assist in the contest and Jason Spezza notched a goal and an assist. Taylor Hall and Jake Muzzin contributed two assist each in the blowout.

Rich Peverley (heart) is looking at the possibility of a comeback.

His agent, Allain Roy, said doctors have suggested Peverley's implanted defibrillator device may be able to be removed. That would open the door, but coming back would still be a lengthy process. Peverley would still have to see more doctors as well as work out insurance waiver issues with the NHL and NHLPA. A possible return is encouraging news though after he collapsed on the bench from a cardiac event on March 10, 2014. Peverley might become an unrestricted free agent this summer if he can pass his tests.

Jason Spezza didn't like his performance in his first season with Dallas.

However, he feels he will be better in 2015-16. "I think I was just more comfortable in the second half. I played better and understood where I was on the team," Spezza said. "You get to know the coach and you get to know the system. I think early on in the year there's a lot of trying to figure out guys and figure out who you're playing with. It's easy to put five names together for a power play, but until you play together you don't really know the little plays you have to make and who likes the puck where. It was definitely a learning process." He earned 17 goals and 62 points in 82 games this past campaign. Spezza believes in the potential of the Stars and he's looking forward to next year.

Dallas Stars and Team France forward Antoine Roussel leads the World Hockey Championship with 34 PIMs through five games.

Tyler Seguin scored twice in Canada's 4-3 win over France in Saturday morning's preliminary round game at the IIHF World Hockey Championships.

That gives Seguin four goals in five games at the tourney. Dallas teammate Jason Spezza is also playing very well. He registered two assists in the win over France and has six points in five games.

Jhonas Enroth told Swedish website Hockey Sverige that a return to Dallas is unlikely.

"There are other teams where there is greater opportunity to play more games," Enroth said in the interview. He posted five wins with a .906 save percentage and a 2.38 goals-against average in 13 appearances with the Stars. It sounds like he'll be testing the waters as an unrestricted free agent in July.
