Stars Prospect Dies in Home Country of Norway

DALLAS (AP) _ Dallas Stars prospect Scott Winkler has died in his home country
of Norway after recently completing his senior season at Colorado College. He
was 23.

School officials said in a news release that Winkler died unexpectedly
Wednesday at his parents’ home. The native of Asker, Norway, was a third-round
pick by the Stars in 2008.

The school said Winkler graduated from Colorado College on May 20 with a
bachelor’s degree in economics.

Winkler came to the U.S. in 2007 and played for Cedar Rapids in the United
States Hockey League the year he was drafted by Dallas. He later enrolled at
Colorado College and compiled 63 points in 120 career games. He had career highs
of 13 goals and 28 points last season.
