The Stars sit in the middle of the Central Division with a 2-1 record. The Ducks lead the Pacific with a 3-0-1 record.
Dallas Center Tyler Seguin (cover photo) leads or co-leads his team in most offensive categories including goals (3), assists (5), points (8) and plus-minus (+3).
New Dallas coach Jim Montgomery brings a high-energy offense to the team. “We are going to be a puck-possession team and we are going to try to make plays everywhere on the ice,” Montgomery told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “When we don’t have the puck, we are going to pressure you so we can get it back and make more plays.”
So far, so good. The Stars have scored 12 goals.
Montgomery is the eighth head coach in franchise history. Before arriving in Dallas, Montgomery spent five season as the head coach at Denver University. His Denver teams compiled a record of 125-57-26 and in 2017, the Pioneers won the University’s eighth national championship.
