Yared hagos

I would just comment that I think this is a good signing. After being a huge talent for a couple of years he finally took a good step last year and making the national team for sweden.

It has been silent aroung Hagos lately, has anyone seen him in Iowa and know how he's doing? He was one of the last cuts before the season if I remeber correctly, how close is he to get a look in the NHL?

I think Lessard or Polak may be the next call. After those if a center is hurt but Barnes is acenter. I would look at next year

Hagos is in a tough spot. The Stars have 5 centers that are all locked on the team, so he'll have to get his shot next year.

Yared has been mostly playing on the third and fourth line in Iowa. He displays his two-way awareness making nice plays from time to time and he sees penalty killing time. I'm not certain he has an NHL future though. If he does, it's probably on the fourth line. It's difficult to know if he'll develop the offensive talent to be a third line NHLer. (Most third line NHLers tore it up in some league at some point, often the AHL.) As a defensive player, he could afford to be stronger on the puck. He's a smart player, but he may top out as a good two-way player at the AHL/European Elite League level.

I would say Yared's strength is his awareness though. He makes offensive and defensive plays that make you say, "That was a smart play." He doesn't often leave me thinking, "What are you doing?!"

I'm willing to bet the reason that Hagos isn't putting up numbers is because he's on the lower lines in Iowa. He's never been much of a finisher. He's always been more of a defensive presence that uses his strength and vision to setup teammates. If he's lining up with 3rd and 4th line talent in the AHL, they're not going to capitalize on chances regulalry.

One issue with his game I noticed in camp is that he will overhandle the puck at times rather than make a simple play offensively. That's something I expect he'll figure out eventually.

His chance at a third line spot will depend heavily on what track the Stars take with their centers over the next couple years. If Arnott walks, and Kapanen replaces him, then Ott probably gets the first crack at the vacated 3rd center spot, but Hagos would probably be next in line. The Stars really don't have a lot of depth at this spot as Holtet and Guyer are probably their best hopes that are even remotely close to NHL play other than Hagos (Neal and Lindgren are both a few years away, I believe).
