James Neal scored two goals on Sunday in the Traverse City Prospects Tournament.
Neal will be battling with Ray Sawada, B.J. Crombeen, and Chris Conner throughout training camp for a spot on the Stars' opening day roster. Neal was unable to make the team last season, so this year he's focused on taking things one day at a time. "I want to enjoy my time here," Neal said. "This is a good tournament, and I think we have a chance to win it, so that's what I'm concentrating on. It's been fun." Neal had 37 points and 63 penalty minutes in 62 games with the AHL Iowa Stars last season.
