April 2019 – In just his second professional season, Bayreuther played a crucial role on the blue line for the Texas Stars. He was also able to make his NHL debut this season and played in 19 games where he compiled two goals and five points. He also had 25 points in 53 games for Texas this season and continued to develop as a point-producing defensemen. Perhaps his biggest strength is his hockey IQ. He sees the ice extremely well and is often able to make smart plays which can create scoring opportunities. He also skates quite well and has strong puck skills. He is strong in his own end and defends adequately. Stars fans should continue to watch Bayreuther develop as he is an intriguing prospect for the Stars. Brandon Floyd

March 2018 – Bayreuther’s pro game has really come around the last several weeks. This is his first full season in the AHL after four years at the NCAA level. The Stars have an immense amount of young talent on the blue line, which makes the road tougher for Bayreuther.  Yet, if he continues to progress it will be difficult to keep him out of the NHL. Matt Kowalski

March 2017 – Gavin Bayreuther has signed a free-agent contract with the Dallas Stars.  The four-year senior from St. Lawrence University was one of the most highly regarded college free agent defensemen available during the UFA signing period. Bayreuther has posted three seasons with 29-plus points during his college tenure, and finished third among all college hockey defensemen in points-per-game this season. Has the potential to be a power play producer eventually at the NHL level, but will report to the AHL’s Texas Stars to start his career.   Kevin LeBlanc
