Dallas reportedly looking to trade defenseman Julius Honka

Dallas reportedly looking to trade defenseman Julius Honka Julius Honka hasn’t fit in with Dallas as well as he or the team had hoped. It now appears the Stars are ready to move on from him. Matthew DeFranks of the Dallas Morning News reports that Dallas is trying to trade the 23-year-old defenseman. While it appeared the 2014 first-rounder would get a chance to establish himself as a full-time NHL player after Stephen Johns’ concussion ultimately cost him the entire season, the exact opposite happened. Honka was in and out of the lineup early on and never really got much going.

The Dallas Stars are trying to trade defenseman Julius Honka, reports Matthew DeFranks of the Dallas Morning News.

The club's former top prospect was chosen 14th overall by Dallas in the 2014 draft. As a right-handed, mobile blue-liner with offensive instincts, Honka has many qualities teams covet, but it appears he's fallen out of favor with the Stars.

In 87 career NHL games, the 23-year-old has yet to leave his mark, tallying just 13 points. He was scratched for the final 35 games of the 2018-19 regular season and didn't appear in the playoffs. He would have to pass through waivers to be sent to the minors.

Honka has been productive in the AHL, tallying 108 points in 201 career games with the Texas Stars.
