Top Dallas Stars Forward to Join the Military

Published August 7, 2023 at 1:07 PM

The Dallas Stars have grown to become a genuine contender in recent years, and the majority of that is on the back of their young core, led by Jason Robertson, Jake Oettinger and the underrated Roope Hintz.

A star in the making


While Oettinger and Robertson get all the headlines, Hintz has consistently improved every year in the NHL thus far, and he's now become a massive part of this Stars offence.

In the past two years, Hintz has scored 72 and 75 points, and with the 26-year old now taking on more responsibility, he will only continue to grow as a leader within this team.

An interesting summer

As a native of Finland, Hintz has to undergo mandatory service in the Finnish military, much like Lauri Markannen of the NBA, and now, it appears Hintz' time has come.

I haven't joined the army yet. It's still ahead. Next summer I will probably join the army.

After successfully putting it off this summer, it appears next off-season will be the one for the 26-year old Hintz, so he will look to take a major jump this season before next off-season is interrupted.
