It was business as usual at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, held this past weekend in Philadelphia, PA. The all-to-common barrage of trade rumors and draft projections by hockey experts swirled about as pundits and fans alike waited for a blockbuster move to be made, one that might shake up the fortunes of a team, their team, in the never-ending quest to improve.
On the flip side, young players like former HC Dallas/Alliance Bulldog player Maxim Letunov, picked 52nd overall by the St. Louis Blues, anxiously waited with family to hear their name called, fulfilling a childhood dream and taking the first step in a new segment of their hockey journey, that of playing the game they love, this time as professionals.
But underneath the glitz and glamour of the draft, the realization of childhood dreams, and the back-and-forth bargaining by club GM’s, lies a set of draft statistics that paint a less emotional, but no less interesting, and encouraging picture of the NHL’s big day.
HC Dallas is excited to announce the addition of Coach Thomas Speer to the coaching staff for the 2014-15 season. Coach Speer and Coach MacNicol will be working together to provide HC Dallas goaltenders complete comprehensive goaltending specific training.
Coach Speer is a full-time goalie coach, who played professionally in the ECHL with the Dallas Stars affiliate, Idaho Steelheads. He played college hockey for three years at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point and one year at the University of Massachusetts Boston.

Congratulations to the 14U AA- Diduck team on their DSTHL Playoff Championship! The team has also been invited to play at the National Tournament in April. Good luck to the players and coaches!
The HC Dallas 18U AA squad erased a 2-0 first period deficit in a thrilling come-from-behind win to take the Texas State Championship over the Allen Americans.
The team played strong hockey throughout the State Tournament weekend, posting an overall 3-1 record, the only blemish coming in a tight 3-2 loss against the Allen Americans in game 1--the club they ultimately defeated in the Title game. Congrats to all 18U AA players and coaches!!
