In 2018-19, the Dallas Stars will aim to return to the Stanley Cup Playoffs after missing it the last two seasons. On paper, the Stars return a talented roster led by captain Jamie Benn and high-scoring winger, Tyler Seguin. Benn and Seguin are both signed to long-term contracts and they're undoubtedly the core of the franchise. Benn and Seguin form an elite offensive duo, both perennially 30-goal scorers. Forward Alex Radulov returns for his second season with the Dallas Stars. Radulov is a talented playmaker formerly of in KHL in Russia. On defense, international players John Klingberg, Miro Keiskanen, and Esa Lindell form a strong core. Klingberg is an ascending talent who has put himself in the heart of the Norris Trophy (Best NHL Defenseman) conversation annually. Ben Bishop will return as the starting goaltender for Dallas. Bishop has always had the talent and this season he'll be counted on to perform at an elite level. Bishop will be spelled by veteran backup Anton Khudobin who has plenty of NHL experience. If the goaltending duo in Dallas can hold up, the Stars have plenty of talent to make a deep run in the Western Conference.
