Dallas Stars Draft Analysis: Team Goes Big (and Small) in 2020

Prior to the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, I wrote an article here on Defending Big D about what sorts of areas the Dallas Stars needed to target in their prospect pool. One of the areas I outlined was titled “finesse forwards,” and I included the following quote:

The Stars have prioritized a lot recently on adding big, powerful forwards (Roope Hintz was a revelation this year for Dallas, while Gurianov, Robertson, Eriksson, and Tufte are all coming up through the system). However, there is still a notable lack of finesse forwards, prospects who excel when it comes to areas such as agility, stick-handling, playmaking, creativity, offensive vision, and power play specialization.
