Texas Stars coach Derek Laxdal is looking for speed.
And watching the Dallas Stars training camp at Cedar Park Center earlier this week, Laxdal said he’s looking forward to coaching the prospects that will be at his disposal this season.
“The one theme that is common amongst them is that they all can skate,” Laxdal said. “In today’s NHL, you have to be able to skate and see the game well. So what we’ve seen from (Dallas) scrimmages and practices is the pace of our team and the pace of young guys. It’s right where we want it to be.”
