  • Stars' Riley Tufte: Waived by Stars

  • Stars' Riley Tufte: Grabs one-year deal

    Tufte signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Stars on Thursday.

    Tufte saw action in 10 games for Dallas this season in which he recorded one goal, five shots and nine hits while averaging just 7:12 of ice time. Looking ahead to 2022-23, the 24-year-old winger could see more opportunities at the NHL level but will likely continue to split his time between the NHL and AHL throughout the campaign.

  • Stars' Riley Tufte: Sent to AHL affiliate

    Tufte was reassigned to AHL Texas on Saturday.

    With Braden Holtby (lower body) sidelined, Tufte was demoted in order to make room for goaltender Adam Scheel on the active roster. Tufte will likely be back with the big club as soon as Holtby is ready to return.

  • Stars' Riley Tufte: Nets first NHL goal

    Tufte scored a goal, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Wild.

    Tufte, a Minnesota native, scored his first NHL goal and point in his home state. He struck on a feed from John Klingberg at 3:13 of the second period. Tufte has played in four of the Stars' last six games, but he's only averaging 6:57 of ice time per game as a fourth-liner. Fantasy managers likely won't need to track his progress closely this season.

  • Stars' Riley Tufte: Elevated from minors

    Tufte was called up from AHL Texas on Friday, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Tufte averaged just 6:08 of ice time in his two league appearances this season in which he recorded two hits and one block. Unless Roope Hintz (illness) suffers a setback and can't play versus the Blues on Friday, Tufte figures to serve primarily as an emergency depth option moving forward and will almost certainly head back to the minors at some point.

  • Stars' Riley Tufte: Demoted to AHL

    The Stars sent Tufte to AHL Texas on Sunday, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

  • Stars' Riley Tufte: Called up Thursday

    Tufte was called up from AHL Texas on Thursday, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.

    Tufte racked up five goals and two assists in seven games while with AHL Texas to begin the year. With Tanner Kero and Blake Comeau both waived Thursday, Tufte should get an instant chance to enter the lineup Saturday versus the Flyers, although he'll likely play in the bottom six.

  • Stars' Riley Tufte: Still searching for first AHL goal

    Tufte is yet to score a goal through his first 35 games this season with AHL Texas.

    Tufte does have eight assists. While the lack of production is highly concerning, it shouldn't come as a surprise. Tufte's game has been trending in the wrong direction since the day Dallas took him 25th overall back in 2016. It's entirely possible the Stars never would have even offered him an entry-level deal had it not been for his draft pedigree. Tufte won't turn 22 years of age until April, but he's a non-prospect until further notice.

  • Stars' Riley Tufte: Inks entry-level deal

    Tufte agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract with Dallas on Wednesday.

    Tufte just wrapped up a second NCAA championship at the University of Minnesota - Duluth. The winger tallied 34 goals and 30 helpers in 121 collegiate contests. The 21-year-old will likely spend a year or two in the minors before getting a chance to crack the 23-man roster.

  • Stars' Riley Tufte: Playing well in sophomore season

    Tufte picked up a goal and two assists to help lead Minnesota-Duluth to a 6-1 win over Western Michigan on Saturday.

    A massive 6-foot-6, 220-pound power forward, Tufte's transition to collegiate hockey went slowly, as expected, but he has been much better for the Bulldogs in his sophomore campaign than he was as a freshman. Tufte is up to 15 goals and 25 points in 32 games on the season, and his play has continuously improved as the year has progressed. The 25th overall pick by the Stars in 2016, Tufte should be ready for the professional ranks after his junior season. He has a very high ceiling and remains a strong hold in dynasty formats.

  • Stars' Riley Tufte: Ready to play this college season

    Tufte has been cleared to play with Minnesota Duluth this season after breaking his wrist in early August, Matt Wellens of the Duluth News Tribune reports.

    The talented prospect broke his wrist in early August, but it was a clean break that did not require surgery, which allowed him a quick recovery. He won't be playing in the NHL anytime soon, but his performance with Minnesota Duluth should provide a measurement to see how ready he might be.
