Scottie Upshall has played 15 seasons in the NHL and he’s fighting for one more pro season, this time with the Dallas Stars. The 35-year-old has been all over the NHL and this time he’s taking his talents south to Dallas Texas.
Upshall didn’t play last season but maybe a years rest could be used to his advantage. He’s played 2 preseason games with the Stars’ group. Upshall played 13:53 against the Wild and 12:40 against Colorado.
In his first against the Wild, Upshall had a -1 rating with 2 PIMs, 2 SoG and 1 blocked shot. In his 2nd game with the Stars, Upshall stepped up. He had 1 goal with a +1, 4 shots on goal with 6 hits and 4 PIMs.
Upshall turns 36 in a few days but if things keep going well for him, he could find himself on the Stars’ roster. The Stars have $970,001 left in projected Cap space. With the climate of this team’s projection and the roster of who they have now, it’s going to be a tough challenge but leave it to Scottie Upshall to go above and beyond.
