At the Dallas Stars annual development camp this year, three players from South Korea – forward Jinhui Ahn, defenseman Wonjun Kim and goaltender Kye Hoon Park – participated alongside Stars prospects.
Dallas general manager Jim Nill invited them at the request of former Pittsburgh Penguins player Jim Paek, the first Korean to play in the NHL. Paek is the director of hockey for the Korean Ice Hockey Association and coaches the South Korean National Team.
Late Thursday night, multiple snipers opened fire on an otherwise peaceful Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas, killing at least five officers and leaving seven other officers and two civilians injured.
On Friday morning, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings confirmed the death of a suspect who had been engaged in a standoff with the police. While the identities of the shooters haven’t yet been announced, Dallas Police have three suspects in custody. More as this story develops.
