Roope Hintz will get a chance to step upAugust 11, 2019 | 11:31 AM
Dallas is tempering expectations for Roope Hintz, but he is poised to get a chance at larger role in 2019-20.
"He has to relish being [an elite player] and that goes into his summer training right now and it's going to carry over into how he approaches training camp," coach Jim Montgomery said. "The worst thing in life is to get comfortable. He's a terrific young man, so we don't expect it. But you can never say it until someone proves it to you that they want to be special." If he can cement a spot as a top-six forward then he will get exposure to some very talented players and his fantasy value could increase substantially.
