Earlier today, the Dallas Stars landed a talented forward in Tony Calderone, who is a senior at the University of Michigan. He is listed as a winger on the right side.
Calderone was the Wolverines’ team captain and one of their best players on the ice alongside with Cooper Marody, who was signed before Calderone to the Edmonton Oilers.
The financial terms of Calderone’s contract is undisclosed, but we do know that it is an entry-level contract.
The 23-year old right winger was a four-year starter in Ann Arbor for the Michigan Wolverines. He is a smart and well-rounded player.
In addition, Calderone recorded 45 points in 40 games this season. Calderone was second on the Wolverines in points, but first on goals scored, as he scored 25 goals.
Lastly, this signing could make Calderone the Stars’ top right wing prospect and a chance to potentially make the team in his first pro campaign.
Note: Dallas is sorely lacking in right shot forwards, both at AHL level and in the pipeline.
