Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Tallies helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen picked up an assist during Monday's 4-3 loss to the Blues in Game 3.

That gives Heiskanen points in back-to-back games after scoring a goal in Game 2. The rookie defenseman had a great regular season, but was not awarded with a Calder nomination. His success in the playoffs -- four points in nine games while averaging 25:46 in ice time -- has certainly made some question that decision.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Second goal now credited to forward
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen's second goal from Wednesday night's playoff win for Game 1 against the Predators is now being credited to forward Alexander Radulov.

If you are counting on Heiskanen in playoff pools, it will be important to check your league's constitution to see how it handles next-day scoring adjustments. The silver lining here is that it was his even-strength tally and not the power-play marker that was re-appropriated. Hiskanen instead gets an assist on the play.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Scores twice in playoff debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen scored two goals on three shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Predators in Game 1.

The rookie defender, coming off a 33-point regular season while skating in all 82 games, made an instant impact in his first career playoff game. Heiskanen will typically skate on the second pairing for the Stars, and he'll see some power-play time as well. One of his two goals Wednesday came with the man advantage.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Lights lamp on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen scored his 11th goal of the season in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Flames.

It was the Finnish rookie's second power-play tally of the year, and eighth point on the man advantage. Overall, Heiskanen has 32 points in 77 games, although he's taken a minus-10 rating as well. He's had a streaky season, but owners in dynasty formats may want to stash the third-overall pick from 2017.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Draws power-play assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen tallied his 21st assist of 2018-19 in Monday's 5-2 win over Winnipeg.

Heiskanen's most recent assist gives the 19-year-old blueliner 31 points. Enjoying a solid rookie campaign in the show, Heiskanen sits third amongst Dallas defensemen in ATOI (23:06) with six games remaining in the regular season.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Draws assist on game-winning goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen picked up an assist in Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Rangers.

Heiskanen drew the lone helper on John Klingberg's second-period goal. The point put an end to what had been a mini three-game skid for Heiskanen who, in 66 games, has 10 goals and 28 points.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Hits double digits in goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen scored his 10th goal of the season in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to Nashville, giving him four points in his last four games.

The rookie defenseman is finally showing signs of life after scoring a paltry three points in 18 games from mid-December to the end of January. This cold spell effectively removed him from most fantasy owners' radars, but he could be worth rostering again if his current hot streak continues. Heiskanen's worth a speculative add at this point.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Adds two apples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen dished out two power-play helpers in Monday's win over the Coyotes.

Heiskanen has been cold lately with just two assists in the last 11 games. He shifted the tides with a secondary assist on Roope Hintz's goal in the second period and he added another on Radek Faksa's score in the third. Both coming on the power play is a big step for the rookie who had just three assists with the man advantage entering Monday's matchup.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Secures 20th point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen dished out a helper and blocked a shot in Tuesday's win over the Blues.

Heiskanen garnered his 20th career point in relatively easy fashion, dumping a puck into the Blues' zone where Tyler Seguin did a bulk of the work and tucked one past Jake Allen. The 19-year-old blueliner went 13 games without an assist before this contest, so there's no complaints with this production.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Finds scoresheet in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen scored a pair of goals in Wednesday's 5-4 win over New Jersey. He also recorded a team-high nine shots on goal.

Prior to scoring a pair of goals Wednesday, the 19-year-old had gone eight games without a point. Despite the recent slump, Heiskanen has enjoyed an impressive rookie campaign with 19 points in 41 games. His second goal of the contest held up as the game winner.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: First career two-goal game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen potted a pair of even-strength goals in Friday's 6-4 home win over the Senators.

Heiskanen entered his rookie season with sky-high expectations, but it appears as though it'll take him some time to fully realize his potential. The Finn has four goals and six helpers through 23 games, which makes him a serviceable fantasy commodity in some deeper leagues, but he's only factored into one scoring play with the man advantage, even though he's approaching two minutes per game in that special teams situation.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Scores goal in road win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen scored a goal in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Canadiens.

Heiskanen, 19, has been asserting himself more in the offensive end recently, and the young blueliner's first-period marker was his second in the last three games. Entering Tuesday night, the rookie defenseman was averaging 21:18 of ice time and has been very impressive the last few games.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Notches first NHL point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen notched one assist and six shots on goal in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Maple Leafs

Heiskanen forced a neutral-zone turnover and bumped the puck to Tyler Seguin, who found Alexander Radulov to tie the game at one in the first period. His two-way game has been solid through three games, and this point is one of many more to come for Heiskanen.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Flaunts two-way game in Stars debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen potted a goal in a 7-5 win over the Rangers at the NHL Prospect Tournament in Traverse City, Michigan on Friday.

The blue-line prospect bolstered his case to win a roster spot with the Stars, dropping jaws with his tremendous two-way play. In addition to a highlight-reel goal, scouts pointed out that he made quality passes and was positioned well defensively throughout the contest. Another staple of Heiskanen's game is his quick feet, and that was on display as well. Savvy fantasy owners will want to invest in Heiskanen now -- it probably won't be long before he's a household name in the NHL.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Ready to seize NHL role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen, who is a heralded blue-line prospect, believes that he is ready to compete at the highest level, reports.

The Stars took the Finn third overall in the 2017 draft. He was reportedly humbled by his experience playing against elite forward Connor McDavid at the World Championship last spring. "Everybody is told how fast McDavid is, but you've got to live it. Well, Miro lived it. McDavid blew right by him," Stars GM Jim Nill said. "What I liked is that for the rest of the game it didn't happen again. He understood that I have to give him a little more space or I have to take space away. Whatever it was, he understood it and it didn't happen again. That's what he's got in him. He's a quick learner and a quick reader." Heiskanen just turned 19 years old in July and there's still a chance that he could start out with AHL Texas. However, it appears that he has the skills and hockey smarts to ultimately land on the fast track to stardom.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Heading to Worlds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen will represent Finland at the 2018 IIHF World Championship, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

Heiskanen was expected to take part in training camp with Dallas last September, but a concussion while playing for his European club led to him staying with HIFK Helsinki for the entire season. The defenseman will likely get an invite to camp again for the upcoming campaign and could end up staying with the Stars long term. The 2017 third-overall pick tallied 11 goals and 12 assists in 30 contests in 2017-18 and would add some offensive firepower to the Dallas blue line.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Won't attend camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen (concussion) will remain with HIFK Helsinki in Finland, rather than joining the Stars' training camp, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

If not for the concussion Heiskanen suffered while playing for his Finnish club, he may have had a shot at securing a spot on the Stars' 23-man roster. Instead, the third overall pick from the 2017 NHL Draft will remain in Europe -- likely for the entire season -- and look to connect with Dallas next year.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Suffering from concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen has not joined the team at training camp due to concussion symptoms, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Heiskanen was absent from the Stars' prospect tournament after requiring stitches following an elbow to the mouth during a Champions Hockey League game. Now it appears the blueliner is suffering from a concussion as well, which has kept him in Finland. Coach Ken Hitchcock said Dallas plans to wait a couple days and then decide whether he'll come to camp; otherwise, he'll stay in Finland to continue playing for HIFK Helsinki.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Heading to training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen (mouth) was kept out of the Stars' prospect tournament, but will be ready to go for training camp.

Securing a spot on the 23-man roster is certainly not out of the question for Heiskanen, although the organization could decide to send him to either AHL Texas or back to Finland in order to further his development. The addition of Marc Methot over the summer filled out the Dallas blue line -- giving the team the luxury of not needing to rush the 18-year-old into action.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Prospect's mouth stitched up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heiskanen, who's arguably the Stars' top defensive prospect, required stitches after taking an elbow to his mouth in a Champions Hockey League contest Friday. The severity of the injury was not immediately known.

Dallas was horrendous defensively last season, as it finished 29th in goals against per game (3.17) and dead last on the penalty kill (73.9 percent), so GM Jim Nill went after the slick-passing Heiskanen with the third overall pick in this year's draft. Those with keeper interest in the Finn should monitor this situation carefully, but it's widely believed that he'll need to start out in the AHL anyway.
