Interesting to see the numbers of how the Dallas Stars impacted hockey in the city of Dallas. They only had 1 ice rink before the Stars arrived in Dallas. Dallas now has 28.
This article is kinda false, but fun to read. The first Dallas/Texas raised NHL prospect that I can remember is goalie David McKee. After that, my former teammate Teddy Ruth (2007 #46 overall, now a CBJ AHL league prospect), who was traded for Sergei Freaking Fedorov at the 2008 trade deadline, was the next Dallas raised prospect to go somewhere. After that, we have the likes of Austin Smith, Matt Donovon (NYI prospect from OKC that played in the Dallas leagues), Chris Brown, Stefan Noeson, Seth Jones etc. I love the Austin Smith story, it's just that he wasn't the pioneer of the craft here in Dallas.
