Fedor Named South Division 2nd Star of the Week; Wilson Honorable Mention

It was a great weekend for the Euless Jr. Stars as they started 2016 with a road sweep over South division rival the Louisiana Drillers.  

Kayne Fedor, forward from Adelaide, AUS, contributed in both wins over the weekend.  On Saturday Fedor was able to provide an assist and amped his production up on Sunday with a goal and two more assists for the weekend.  In his second season with the organization, Fedor is having his best offensive production contributing 15 goals and 17 assists thus far on the season.

Triston Wilson, forward from Midlothian, TX, had all of his production on the weekend come in one big chunk in a single game.  Scratch that, a single period.  When Euless needed some offensive production the most in Saturday's contest, Wilson stepped up and shot his way to a hat trick in less that 20 minutes of playing time and ultimately led the Jr. Stars to a 6-2 victory.  Wilson has put together an 18/4/22 stat line through the second weekend in January.

Euless Jr. Stars Partner With Little Rookies Program

The Euless Jr. Stars junior hockey team is making their presence known in the eyes of the youth in the Dallas, TX community.

The Jr. Stars have gotten involved with the little rookies youth program that was started by Mike Modano and the Dallas Stars to expose not only kids at a young age to hockey but also their parents. The program is very unique for a great reason: It's 100% free of charge to anyone wanting to participate.  From the ice time to all the equipment, the Stars provide everything.  One of the major drawbacks to the youth picking up the sticks and sliding on the skates for the first time is the price tag that comes along with playing the game.  Modano and the Stars have given the kids and their parents in the community the opportunity to take that next step forward and seeing what the game of hockey is all about.

The little rookies youth program is held at all the Dr. Pepper Star Center across from the metroplex throughout the year.  For more information about the program follow the link below.
