Fistric fits in fine on Dallas blueline

Canwest News Service

Published: Friday, May 02, 2008

Mark Fistric has had to grow up quickly. The Dallas Stars' young defenceman has taken the fast track to the NHL and has been expected to do plenty in his rookie playoff season.

It's enough to add a few years to a guy's life.

"I definitely don't feel like I'm 21 years old any more," Fistric said. "It's an exciting time for me, exciting to be as young as I am and play here."

Fistric has gotten more time with the loss of Philippe Boucher and that has continued as the Stars roll seven defencemen during Sergei Zubov's first few games back. And he's taken advantage of those veteran defencemen -- what's left of them, anyway -- picking their brains when necessary.

"I talk a lot with Mattias [Norstrom]. He's my stallmate and he keeps me calm during games," Fistric said. "As I've gone on I've felt more comfortable, more confident in my game."
