The Dallas
Dallas
Stars are a professional ice hockey team based in Dallas. They are members of the Central Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League
National Hockey League
(NHL). The team was founded during the 1967 NHL expansion as the Minnesota North Stars, based in Bloomington, Minnesota. Before the beginning of the 1978–79 NHL season, the team merged with the Cleveland Barons after the league granted them permission due to each team's respective financial struggles. Ultimately, the franchise relocated to Dallas
Dallas
for the 1993–94 NHL season. The Stars played out of Reunion Arena from their relocation until 2001, when the team moved less than 1.5 miles into the American Airlines Center. The Stars have won eight division titles in Dallas, two Presidents' Trophies as the top regular season team in the NHL, the Western Conference championship twice, and in 1998–99, the Stanley Cup. Joe Nieuwendyk won the Conn Smythe Trophy

as the most valuable player of the playoffs that year. In 2000, Neal Broten

Franchise history[edit] Minnesota North Stars
Minnesota North Stars
(1967–1993)[edit] Main article: Minnesota North Stars The Minnesota North Stars
Minnesota North Stars
began play in 1967 as part of the NHL's six-team expansion. Home games were played at the newly constructed Metropolitan Sports Center ("Met Center") in Bloomington, Minnesota. Initially successful both on the ice and at the gate, the North Stars fell victim to financial problems after several poor seasons in the mid-1970s.

from 1991 to 1993. The franchise was moved to Dallas

in 1993, maintaining the Stars identity as opposed to rebranding.

In 1978, the North Stars were purchased by the owners of the Cleveland Barons (formerly the California Golden Seals), the Gund brothers, George III and Gordon. With both teams on the verge of folding, the NHL permitted the two failing franchises to merge. The merged team continued as the Minnesota North Stars, but assumed the Barons' place in the Adams Division in order to balance out the divisions, while the Seals/Barons franchise records were retired. The merger brought with it a number of talented players, and the North Stars were revived—they reached the Stanley Cup
Stanley Cup
Finals in 1981, where they lost in five games to the New York Islanders. However, by the early 1990s, declining attendance and the inability to secure a new downtown revenue-generating arena led ownership to request permission to move the team to the San Francisco Bay Area
San Francisco Bay Area
in 1990. The NHL rejected the request and instead agreed to award an expansion franchise, the San Jose Sharks, to the Gund brothers. The North Stars were sold to a group of investors that were originally looking to place a team in San Jose, although one of the group's members, Norman Green, would eventually gain control of the team.[3] In the following season, the Minnesota North Stars
Minnesota North Stars
made it to the Stanley Cup
Stanley Cup
Finals, only to lose to the Pittsburgh Penguins. After the 1991 season, the North Stars suffered through poor attendance and profitability. The team's fortunes were further impeded by the terms of the settlement with the Gund brothers, in which they were permitted to take a number of North Stars players to San Jose. New owner Norman Green explored the possibility of moving the team to Anaheim, however the NHL decided instead to place the expansion Mighty Ducks there in 1992. In their final two seasons in Minnesota, the team adopted a new logo which omitted the "North" from "North Stars", leading many fans to anticipate the team heading south.[4] Relocation to Dallas
Dallas
(1993–1998)[edit]

Reunion Arena was the first home for the Stars in Dallas. The arena was the Star's home from 1993 to 2001.

In 1993, amid further attendance woes and bitter personal controversy, Green obtained permission from the league to move the team to Dallas for the 1993-94 season, and the decision was announced on March 10, 1993.[5] Green was convinced by former Dallas
Dallas
Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach
Roger Staubach
that Dallas
Dallas
would be a suitable market for an NHL team.[4] The NHL, to quell the controversy, promised the fans of Minnesota a return in the future with a new franchise; that promise was fulfilled in 2000 when Minnesota was awarded the Minnesota Wild
Minnesota Wild
as an expansion franchise. The Stars would move into Reunion Arena, built in 1980, the downtown arena already occupied by the Dallas
Dallas
Mavericks. The Stars played their first game in Dallas
Dallas
on October 5, 1993, a 6–4 win against the Detroit Red Wings.[6] In that game, Neal Broten scored the first Stars goal in Dallas. Dallas
Dallas
was an experiment for the NHL. At that time, the Stars would be one of the three southern-most teams in the NHL, along with the newly-created Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers
Florida Panthers
as the NHL's first real ventures into southern non-traditional hockey markets. Though the Stars were relatively still unknown in the area, word of the team spread rapidly, and the immediate success of the team on the ice, as well as Mike Modano's career best season (50 goals, 93 points) helped spur the team's popularity in Dallas. The Stars set franchise bests in wins (42) and points (97) in their first season in Texas, qualifying for the 1994 playoffs. The Stars further shocked the hockey world by sweeping the St. Louis Blues
St. Louis Blues
in the first round, but lost to the eventual Western Conference Champion Vancouver Canucks
Vancouver Canucks
in the second round. The Stars' success in their first season, along with American superstar Mike Modano's spectacular on ice performances would be an integral part of the Stars' eventual franchise success in the immediate years to come. The almost immediate success of the Stars was also helped by a long history of second-tier hockey in the area. The minor league Central Hockey League
Central Hockey League
had two teams in the area, the Fort Worth Texans and the Dallas
Dallas
Blackhawks for three decades before the Stars arrival. Green, who had run into financial problems stemming from his business ventures outside of hockey, was forced to sell the team to businessman Tom Hicks in December 1995.[4] Building for a championship[edit] The 1994–95 season was shortened by an owners' lockout. The Stars traded captain Mark Tinordi along with Rick Mrozik to the Washington Capitals before the season began for Kevin Hatcher. Long time North Stars hold-over Neal Broten
Neal Broten
was named his replacement, although he was traded too after only 17 games to the New Jersey Devils. Broten was replaced by Kevin's younger brother Derian Hatcher as team captain, a role he would serve in for the next decade. The Stars played only 48 games that season posting a record of 17–23–8. Despite the shortened season and the losing record, the Stars again made the playoffs, losing in five games to the Red Wings in the first round.[7]

The Stars made several moves to revamp the roster in the 1996 off-season, notably making a trade to acquire Sergei Zubov. He remained on the team until he left the NHL in 2009.

1995–96 would be the first full season under new owner Tom Hicks. In the offseason, the Stars traded for former Montreal Canadiens' captain and three-time Frank J. Selke Trophy
Frank J. Selke Trophy
winner Guy Carbonneau, who was then with the St. Louis Blues. With the Stars struggling to begin the season, general manager and head coach Bob Gainey traded for center Joe Nieuwendyk
Joe Nieuwendyk
from the Calgary Flames

for Corey Millen and Jarome Iginla, then a Stars prospect. The Stars recorded only 11 wins in the first half of the season, and Bob Gainey relinquished his coaching duties in January to be the full-time general manager of the team. The Stars soon hired Michigan K-Wings

head coach Ken Hitchcock

to replace him; it would be his first NHL head coaching position. The Stars then traded for Benoit Hogue from the Toronto Maple Leafs

late in the season, but ultimately finished in sixth place in the Central Division, missing the playoffs for the first time since moving to Texas.[8] In the 1996 off-season, the Stars continued to revamp their roster, adding defensemen Darryl Sydor

followed by Sergei Zubov

for Kevin Hatcher. Zubov would serve as the Stars' top defenseman and powerplay quarterback until leaving the NHL in 2009. On the ice, Ken Hitchcock's first season proved to be a good one. The Stars bested their 1994 totals, posting 48 wins and reaching the 100-point mark for the first time in franchise history. The Stars won the Central Division, their first division title since 1983–84 (when they were still the Minnesota North Stars) and were seeded second in the playoffs.[9] Despite the regular season success, the youthful Stars were upset in the first round by the Edmonton Oilers
Edmonton Oilers
in seven games. Defenseman Grant Ledyard tripped in overtime of Game 7, allowing Todd Marchant

to score the game- and series-winning goal on a breakaway against goaltender Andy Moog. In the 1997 off-season, the Stars signed star goaltender Ed Belfour
Ed Belfour
as a free agent after a well publicized falling-out with the San Jose Sharks, who had traded a number of players to the Chicago Blackhawks to obtain him in January in the previous season.[10] Andy Moog was allowed to leave via free agency, but later returned to the Stars as an assistant coach. The 1997–98 season was another banner year for the Stars. The Stars again set franchise records in wins (49) and points (109). Dallas

acquired Mike Keane

at the deadline from the New York Rangers. The Stars won the franchise's first Presidents' Trophy as the NHL's best regular season team, as well as the Central Division title for the second season in a row. Belfour set franchise season records for goals against average (1.88), wins (37) and just missed out on the Jennings Trophy

of the New Jersey Devils. The Stars were the first overall seed for the 1998 Stanley Cup

in six games in the first round. Notorious enforcer Bryan Marchment injured Joe Nieuwendyk's right knee, forcing him to miss the rest of the playoffs with torn ligaments. In the second round, they again met the Edmonton

Stanley Cup
Finals In the 1998 off-season, after falling just short in the Western Conference Finals, the Stars added what they believed was the final piece toward winning a championship: star goalscoring winger Brett Hull. Hull had already had a magnificent career with the St. Louis Blues, with three consecutive 70-goal seasons and a Hart Memorial Trophy, but a fallout with Blues management led Hull to leave St. Louis via free agency.[11] Additionally, this was the first season for the Stars in the Pacific Division after the 1998 NHL division re-alignment. The Stars 1998–99 season was excellent. The Stars won 51 games, surpassing the 50-win mark for the first time in franchise history. They also recorded 114 points, which still stands today as a franchise record. They won the Pacific Division by 24 points, their third consecutive division title; a second consecutive Presidents' Trophy; the Jennings Trophy
Jennings Trophy
as the league's top defensive team; and were awarded the top seed in the 1999 Stanley Cup

playoffs. Winger Jere Lehtinen was also awarded the Frank J. Selke Trophy.[12]

Joe Nieuwendyk
Joe Nieuwendyk
helped the Stars win their first Stanley Cup

for that year's playoffs.

In the first round of the playoffs, Dallas

faced their playoff arch-rivals, the Edmonton

Oilers. The Stars swept the Oilers in four tough games, winning Game 4 in the third overtime on a goal by Joe Nieuwendyk. They then faced the St. Louis Blues
St. Louis Blues
in the second round. After taking a 2–0 series lead, the Blues stormed back to tie the series. The Stars then won the next two games to beat the Blues in six games. The series again ended on an overtime goal, this time from Mike Modano. In the Conference Finals, they faced the Colorado Avalanche for the first time in Stars history. This would be the first of four playoff meetings between the Stars and Avalanche in the next seven years. After both the Stars and the Avalanche split the first four games at a 2–2 series tie, the Avalanche won Game 5 by a score of 7–5, taking a 3–2 series lead, The Stars rallied winning game six on the road, and game seven at home, both by 4–1 scores.[13] This was the Stars' first Stanley Cup
Stanley Cup
Finals appearance as the Dallas Stars, although they made the finals twice as the Minnesota North Stars. They faced the Eastern Conference champion Buffalo Sabres, who had defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs
Toronto Maple Leafs
4–1 in the Eastern Conference Finals. After splitting the first four games, the Stars vaunted defense would hold the Sabres to only one goal in the next two, winning Game 5 2–0 and Game 6 2–1 on an overtime goal by Brett Hull. Hull's goal at 14:51 of the third overtime was remembered as one of the most controversial goals ever scored. That season, the NHL still had the infamous "crease rule" in effect, which stated that if any player of the attacking team who did not have possession of the puck was in the crease before the puck, then any resulting goal was disallowed. Hull had initially gained possession of the puck outside the crease and had made a shot that was blocked by Buffalo goaltender Dominik Hasek. One of Hull's skates entered the crease as he corralled the rebound, and Hull's second shot scored the Cup-winning goal, followed by a lengthy official review. The goal was eventually allowed, as having simply blocked Hull's shot rather than catching it, Hasek never took possession of the puck away from Hull. Officials therefore determined that rather than calling it a loose puck, Hull would be considered to have had continuous possession of the puck from before his first shot outside the crease. The complexity of the crease rule, and the attendant difficulties in understanding its application by fans and players alike, combined with the controversy arising out of the disputed Cup-winning goal, resulted in the crease rule being repealed the following season. Hull's goal marked the 13th time a Stanley Cup-winning goal was scored in overtime, and only the fourth to be scored in multiple overtimes. This was the only time between 1995 and 2003 that a team other than the New Jersey Devils, Colorado Avalanche or Detroit Red Wings
Detroit Red Wings
won the Stanley Cup. The team added veterans Kirk Muller, Dave Manson and Sylvain Cote in an effort to defend their Stanley Cup

championship in 1999–2000. On December 31, 1999, Brett Hull

scored his 600 and 601st career goals in a 5–4 win over the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. The Stars ultimately won the Pacific Division for the second year in a row, and were seeded second in the Western Conference. Dallas

then defeated the Edmonton Oilers and San Jose Sharks

in the first and second rounds, both 4–1 series victories. The Stars, for the second season in a row, defeated the Colorado Avalanche

in the Western Conference Finals in seven games to reach their second consecutive Stanley Cup
Stanley Cup
Finals, where they met the New Jersey Devils. Because the Devils finished the regular season with one more point than Dallas, the Stars had to play their first playoff series without home ice advantage since 1995.[14] The Stars lost all three games in Reunion Arena in the Finals, and lost the series in Game 6 on a double-overtime goal by New Jersey forward Jason Arnott. Unsuccessful playoff runs[edit] Hoping to win back the Stanley Cup, the Stars again captured the Pacific Division, posting a solid 48–24–8–2 record in the 2000–01 season. In the playoffs, the Stars met the Edmonton
Edmonton
Oilers in the first round, battling back-and-forth through the first four games, with each game decided by one goal, including three going into overtime. Game 5 would also go to overtime, as the Stars took a 3–2 series lead on a goal by Kirk Muller. In Game 6 in Edmonton, however, the Stars did not need overtime, advancing to the second round with a 3–1 win. Facing the St. Louis Blues, the Stars would run out of gas, being swept in four straight games. The Game 2 loss would be the last NHL game played in Reunion Arena.

Marty Turco

to free agency.

Moving into the brand new American Airlines Center

for the 2001–02 season, the Stars got off to a slow start to the season, as goaltender Ed Belfour
Ed Belfour
struggled through one of his worst seasons. Coach Ken Hitchcock was eventually fired, being replaced by Rick Wilson. Despite the coaching change, the Stars continued to play poor hockey. With the prospect of missing the playoffs, the Stars traded 1999 Conn Smythe winner Joe Nieuwendyk
Joe Nieuwendyk
and Jamie Langenbrunner to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for Randy McKay and Jason Arnott, who scored the game-winning goal in the 2000 Finals against Dallas. The Stars would eventually go on to post a respectable record of 35–28–13–5. However, it would not be enough for the playoffs, as they fell four points short of the final eighth spot in the Western Conference. Following the season, coach Rick Wilson would return to assistant coaching duties, as the Stars brought in Dave Tippett
Dave Tippett
as his replacement. As in the 2002 off-season, Ed Belfour
Ed Belfour
left via free agency to the Toronto Maple Leafs. To begin the 2002–03 campaign, the Stars awarded the starting goaltending position to Marty Turco, who went on to have one of the best seasons in NHL history, posting the lowest goals against average (GAA) since 1940, at 1.76. However, missing 18 games late in the season likely cost him a shot at the Vezina Trophy, awarded to the league's top goaltender. Regardless, the Stars posted the best record in the Western Conference at 46–17–15–4, and along the way, two-way star Jere Lehtinen
Jere Lehtinen
won his third Frank J. Selke Trophy. In the playoffs, the Stars once again met the Edmonton
Edmonton
Oilers, and once again the Oilers would prove a contentious opponent, winning two of the first three games. However, the Stars would prove the better team again by winning the next three games to take the series in six games. The Stars' second round series against the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim
Anaheim
got off to an unbelievable start, as the game went deep into overtime tied 3–3. However, Mighty Ducks goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 60 shots as the Ducks scored early in the fifth overtime. Game 2 would be more of the same, as the Ducks stunned the Stars in overtime. Desperately needing a win, the Stars bounced back to take Game 3 in Anaheim. However, the Ducks would take a 3–1 series lead by breaking a scoreless tie late in the third period of Game 4. In Game 5, the Stars finally solved Giguere by scoring four goals to keep their playoff hopes alive. However, the Stars dreams of a return trip to the Stanley Cup
Stanley Cup
Finals would end in heartbreaking fashionm as the Ducks broke a 3–3 tie with 1:06 left in Game 6 on a goal by defenseman Sandis Ozolinsh. Coming off their disappointing playoff loss, the Stars would get off to a shaky start to the 2003–04 season, as they played mediocre hockey through the first three months of the season, posting a sub-.500 record. As the calendar turned to 2004, however, the Stars began to find their game, as they posted a 9–4–3 record in January. As the season wore on, the Stars would get stronger, climbing up the playoff ladder and eventually reaching second place in the Pacific Division, where they finished with a solid 41–26–13–2 record; Marty Turco
Marty Turco
had another outstanding season, recording a 1.98 GAA. However, the Stars could not carry their momentum into the playoffs, as they were beaten by the Colorado Avalanche
Colorado Avalanche
in five games in the first round. Post-lockout era (2005–2008)[edit] Coming out of the owners' lockout that cancelled the entire 2004–05 season, the Stars remained one of the strongest teams in the Western Conference for the start of 2005–06, as they won four of their first five games on the way to a solid October. November would be even better for Dallas, as they won 10 of 13 games and took over first place in the Pacific Division, a position they would hold most of the season, as they went on to finish with a terrific record of 53–23–6. One reason for the Stars success was their strong play in shootouts, as forward Jussi Jokinen
Jussi Jokinen
was nearly automatic, making 10-of-13 shot attempts. Also performing strong in shootouts was Sergei Zubov, who used a slow-but-steady backhand to go 7-for-12, as the Stars ultimately won 12 of 13 games that were settled by a shootout. As the number two seed in the Western Conference, the Stars faced the seventh-seeded Colorado Avalanche. The Stars were favorited to win the Western Conference, and some even predicted them to win the Stanley Cup. However, the Stars would stumble right from the start, losing Game 1 by a score of 5–2 as the Avalanche scored five unanswered goals after the Stars jumped out to a promising 2–0 lead. Game 2 would see the Stars suffer another setback at home, as the Stars lost in overtime 5–4 on a goal by Joe Sakic. On the road in Game 3, the Stars led 3–2 in the final minute before the Avalanche forced overtime on a goal by Andrew Brunette, while Alex Tanguay
Alex Tanguay
won the game just 69 seconds into overtime to put the Stars in a 3–0 hole. The Stars would avoid the sweep with 4–1 win in Game 4, but overtime would doom them again in Game 5, as Andrew Brunette

scored the series winner at 6:05, ending the Stars' playoffs hopes after just five games. Dallas

Mike Modano

scored his 500th goal on November 7, 2007 against the San Jose Sharks. He was only the second American-born player to reach the milestone. He later surpassed Joe Mullen as the highest scoring American in the league.

Following the previous season's disappointing first round playoff upset at the hands of the seventh-seeded Avalanche, the Stars made a number of changes during the 2006 off-season. Former Stars goalkeeper Andy Moog was promoted to assistant general manager for player development (he kept his job as goaltending coach) and former player Ulf Dahlen was hired as an assistant coach. The Stars allowed center Jason Arnott, defenseman Willie Mitchell and goaltender Johan Hedberg to leave as free agents. Forward Niko Kapanen
Niko Kapanen
was traded to the Atlanta Thrashers

and the remaining two years on fan-favorite right-winger Bill Guerin's contract were bought out. The Stars also received Patrik Stefan and Jaroslav Modry in the Atlanta trade, and signed Eric Lindros, Jeff Halpern, Matthew Barnaby and Darryl Sydor
Darryl Sydor
as free agents. Young goaltender Mike Smith was promoted to the NHL to serve as Marty Turco's backup. During the season, key future pieces – center Mike Ribeiro

and defenseman Mattias Norstrom – were added through separate trades. Young players Joel Lundqvist, Krys Barch, Nicklas Grossmann

and Chris Conner

all saw significant ice time while other players were out of the lineup with injuries. On September 29, 2006, Brenden Morrow

Mike Modano
scored his 500th career NHL goal, making him only the 39th player and second American to ever reach the milestone. On March 17, Modano scored his 502nd and 503rd NHL goals, breaking the record for an American-born player, previously held by Joe Mullen. On January 24, 2007, the 55th National Hockey League

in the first round. Marty Turco delivered three shutout wins in Games 2, 5 and 6, but the Stars' offense failed to capitalize and they lost the series in seven games, the third season in a row that they lost in the first round. Return to playoff prominence (2007–2008 season)[edit] In the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, the Stars drafted the relatively unknown Jamie Benn

129th overall. After starting a lackluster 7–7–3 in the 2007–08 season, General Manager Doug Armstrong

champion, the Anaheim

Ducks, in the first round.[19] After a rough end to the season, only winning two games in March of that year, the Stars shocked everyone by winning the first two games of the series in Anaheim, and then would go on to finish off the Ducks in six games, their first playoff series win since 2003. In the second round, the Stars matched up with the Pacific Division champion San Jose Sharks. Once again, the Stars surprised everyone by winning the first two games of the series on the road. In Game 2, Brad Richards tied an NHL record by recording four points in the third period.[20] The Stars would then take a 3–0 lead after a Mattias Norstome overtime goal in Game 3. Captain Brenden Morrow
Brenden Morrow
finished the Sharks off in Game 6 with a powerplay goal nearly halfway into the fourth overtime.[21] The win sent the Stars to their first Conference Finals since 2000, where they met the powerhouse Detroit Red Wings. After falling behind 3–0, the Stars made a series of it, however, winning two games before ultimately finally being ousted by the Red Wings in six games.[22] Fast starts to slow finishes (2008–2011)[edit] The 2008–09 season saw the early loss for the season of captain Brenden Morrow

before a game in Calgary. The incident forced the team to suspend Avery for the season; he was later waived by the Stars. That incident, plus injuries to key players Brad Richards and Sergei Zubov, caused the Stars to tailspin to a 12th-place finish and the first missed playoffs for Dallas
Dallas
since 2002. In the wake of the season, the Stars hired a new general manager, former player and alternate captain Joe Nieuwendyk. Hull and Jackson remained with the Stars, but were reassigned to new roles within the organization. Less than a week after he was hired, Nieuwendyk fired six-season head coach Dave Tippett

on June 10, 2009, and hired Marc Crawford the next day as his replacement. Other off-season moves included the addition of Charlie Huddy as assistant coach in charge of defense and the promotions of Stu Barnes and Andy Moog to assistant coaches.

The Stars' 2009–10 season was similar to the previous one. Inconsistent play and defensive struggles plagued the team throughout the season, as they failed to adjust to Marc Crawford's new offensively-minded system, and owner Tom Hicks' financial troubles prevented the team from spending more than $45 million on payroll, over $11 million beneath the league salary cap.[23] The Stars failed to win more than three games in a row all season, finished in last in the Pacific Division and repeated their 12th place conference finish from the year before with a record of 37–31–14 for 88 points.[24] This was the first time that they would miss the playoffs two seasons in a row since the Stars moved to Texas. In the off-season, longtime goaltender Marty Turco

was let go in favor of Kari Lehtonen
Kari Lehtonen
to become the team's number one goaltender for the future.[25] In the last game of the season at the Minnesota Wild, Mike Modano was named the game's first star and skated around the rink after the game wearing his North Stars uniform, receiving a rousing ovation.[26] In the 2010 off-season, the Stars released Marty Turco
Marty Turco
and Mike Modano, the face of the franchise for the past two decades. Modano subsequently signed with the Detroit Red Wings

while Turco joined the Chicago Blackhawks. Winger Jere Lehtinen, who played his entire career with the Stars, announced his retirement in December 2010. The team also made key acquisitions, such as winger Adam Burish
Adam Burish
(who was on the 2010 Stanley Cup
Stanley Cup
champion Chicago Blackhawks) and goaltender Andrew Raycroft. They also gave Jonathan Cheechoo
Jonathan Cheechoo
a try-out, but he was cut and later signed with division rivals San Jose Sharks. To begin the 2010 season, the Stars won their first three games, going on a three-game win streak for the first time since the 2007–08 season by beating the New Jersey Devils
New Jersey Devils
in overtime, New York Islanders in a shootout and against Mike Modano
Mike Modano
and the Red Wings. During the third game against the Red Wings, the Stars crowd gave Modano a standing ovation as he was shown on the Jumbotron. After a hot start to the season, the Stars dominated the first half of the season, staying on the Pacific Division lead and staying in the top three spots of the conference. It seemed like the old Stars were back, as through the first half of the season, they went 30–15–6. But after the All-Star Game, the Stars went into a slump, going on numerous losing streaks and blowing games. Through this though, the Stars still remained in the playoff picture. On the day of the trade deadline, the Stars traded James Neal and Matt Niskanen
Matt Niskanen
to the Pittsburgh Penguins
Pittsburgh Penguins
for defenseman Alex Goligoski. After an awful second half, the Stars still had a chance to make the playoffs by winning all their games in April. They won all of them except for last, as they lost to the Minnesota Wild
Minnesota Wild
5–3, costing them a playoff spot. After missing the playoffs for the third consecutive season, Dallas fired coach Marc Crawford
Marc Crawford
on April 12, 2011.[27] In the spring of 2011, according to Darren Dreger of TSN, the team has been "financially managed" by the NHL for over a year. On June 16, 2011, Dallas
Dallas
hired Glen Gulutzan to be head coach, making him the sixth coach since the franchise's move from Minnesota.[28] On September 13, 2011, lenders voted to agree to have the Stars file for bankruptcy and sold at auction.[29] On September 21, 2011, Mike Modano
Mike Modano
announced his retirement from the NHL. By October 22, 2011, competing bids to buy the club were due. Vancouver
Vancouver
businessman and Kamloops Blazers
Kamloops Blazers
owner Tom Gaglardi's bid was the only one submitted, clearing the way for him to enter the final stages of taking over ownership of the team. Gaglardi's purchase was approved by the NHL Board of Governors on November 18, 2011.[29] A bankruptcy court judge approved the bid for an enterprise value of $240 million. First lien creditors got about 75 cents on the dollar. The Stars lost $38 million during their last fiscal year and $92 million over the last three seasons.[30] Tom Gaglardi era (2011–present)[edit] As the new owner, Gaglardi's first move was bringing back former Stars President Jim Lites to once again take the reins as team president and CEO. To begin the 2011–12 season, the Stars once again jumped out to a fast start, going 22–15–1 through the first 38 games of the season. When the second half of the season began, however, the Stars slumped through the months of January and February, before getting hot again in late February. Throughout March, the Stars regained the lead of the Pacific Division. Beginning on March 26, 2012, the Stars embarked on a western road trip that saw them visit the Calgary Flames, Edmonton
Edmonton
Oilers, Vancouver Canucks
Vancouver Canucks
and San Jose Sharks. Going into the road trip, the Stars were in control of their own destiny, having to gain four points on the road trip to win their first Pacific Division title since the 2005–06 season. After the Stars lost 5–4 in Calgary
Calgary
to the Flames, the Stars beat the Oilers two nights later, 3–1. This would be their last win of the season, as the Stars were rolled over by the Canucks and Sharks. Even though they had lost the division crown, the Stars still had a chance to clinch a playoff spot. The Stars, however, were eliminated from playoff contention on April 5 in a 2–0 loss to the playoff-bound Nashville Predators. The team failed to qualify for the post-season for the fourth consecutive year, setting a franchise record for futility.[31][32]

In the 2013 off-season, the Stars acquired Tyler Seguin
Tyler Seguin
as a part of a seven-player trade with the Boston Bruins.

On July 1, 2012, the team signed free agent veterans Ray Whitney, Aaron Rome
Aaron Rome
and future Hockey Hall of Famer Jaromir Jagr. The next day, the Stars traded fan-favorite Steve Ott
Steve Ott
and Adam Pardy
Adam Pardy
to the Buffalo Sabres for center Derek Roy. When 2012–13 NHL lockout
2012–13 NHL lockout
ended, the Stars began an up-and-down season, although staying in the race for one of the eight playoff spots in the shortened season, which had only 48 games. In mid-season, forward Michael Ryder
Michael Ryder
was traded to his former team, the Montreal Canadiens, for Erik Cole. This shocked many Stars fans, as Ryder was a fan-favorite to Stars fans and had been producing good stats for the Stars throughout the shortened season. Before the trade deadline in early April, the Stars began to falter, and the team's captain, Brenden Morrow, was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins; Roy was traded to the Vancouver
Vancouver
Canucks; Jagr to the Boston Bruins; and Tomas Vincour to the Colorado Avalanche
Colorado Avalanche
to close out the trade deadline, all in exchange for draft picks and prospects.[33] After all of the trades at the NHL trade deadline, many counted the Stars out, as it seemed they were beginning to rebuild and throw in the towel during the season. However, the Stars' remaining young players pulled together to win six of their next eight games, thus propelling the Stars back into the 2013 playoff race. The Stars soon became the new Cinderella team and were getting better as their new-found success went on. However, the Stars dropped their final five games, losing all of them and gaining only one point in their final five games, which eliminated them from playoff contention. The Stars had now missed the playoffs for five-straight seasons, continuing to set the all-time record in the franchise (dating back to the Minnesota days) for most consecutive seasons without a playoff appearance. The day after their final regular season game of the 2012–13 season (a 3–0 loss to the Detroit Red Wings), the Stars fired General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk. The next day, the Stars introduced their 11th all-time general manager, Jim Nill, the former assistant general manager of the Red Wings. On May 14, 2013, the coaching staff was also fired,[34] and on May 31, 2013, Scott White was re-introduced as the director of hockey operations.[35] Nill made his first big trade as general manager when he acquired Tyler Seguin, Rich Peverley
Rich Peverley
and Ryan Button from the Boston Bruins
Boston Bruins
for Loui Eriksson, Reilly Smith, Matt Fraser and Joe Morrow. Under new head coach Lindy Ruff, the Stars made it to the 2014 playoffs with a successful run on a 40–31–11 record, finishing fourth in the new-look Central Division for the 2013–14 season. They lost in the first round of the playoffs to the Anaheim Ducks
Anaheim Ducks
in six games with a 4–2 Game 6 loss. Nill made another big trade as general manager when he acquired Jason Spezza and Ludwig Karlsson from the Ottawa Senators
Ottawa Senators
in exchange for Alex Chiasson, Nick Paul, Alex Guptill and a second-round pick in 2015. He also signed Senators player Ales Hemsky as a free agent on a three-year, $12 million contract on July 1, 2014. Despite these moves, the Stars finished with the second-lowest goaltender save percentage in the NHL during the 2014–15 season, which resulted in them failing to qualify for the 2015 playoffs due to their sixth-place finish in the Central Division. The lone bright spot of the 2014–15 season was Jamie Benn
Jamie Benn
winning the Art Ross Trophy. On April 11, 2015, Benn scored 4 points in the Stars' last regular season game to finish with 87 points on the season and win the Art Ross Trophy. His final point, a secondary assist with 8.5 seconds left in the game, allowed him to overtake John Tavares for the award.[36] In the 2015–16 season, the Stars won their first Central Division title since 1998 and posted the best regular season record in the Western Conference. In the first round of the playoffs, they defeated the Minnesota Wild
Minnesota Wild
in six games. In the second round, they faced the St. Louis Blues, for the first time since 2001, and lost the series in seven games. The Stars finished with a 34–37–11 record in the 2016–17 season, missing the playoffs for the seventh time in the past nine seasons. As a result, the team announced that head coach Lindy Ruff's contract would not be renewed. Team information[edit] Logo and jersey design[edit] When they debuted in Dallas
Dallas
for the 1993–94 season, they kept the same uniform design from their later Minnesota days, except for the addition of the Texas
Texas
logo patch on the shoulders. Away uniforms were black and home uniforms were white. With minor trim changes, a darker shade of green, and the word 'Dallas' added in the 1994–95 season, they kept this design until their 1999 Stanley Cup-winning campaign. The black pants have the word 'Dallas' in gold run through the sides with green stripes. In the 1997–98 season, the Stars introduced an alternate uniform that partly resembled those worn during the All-Star Game at the time. The uniform was mostly green on top and black at the bottom, in a star-shaped design. For the 1999–2000 season, it became the primary away uniform, and was paired with a new home uniform featuring the same basic design, with white on top and green at the bottom. They kept this design until the 2006–07 season, during which the NHL switched color designations on home and away jerseys in the 2003–04 season. The striping was also eliminated on the black pants. The Stars introduced an alternate jersey for the 2003–04 season that proved both embarrassing and unpopular to critics and fans. The uniform, which was black with a green bottom and red trim, featured a modern representation of the constellation Taurus topped by a trailing green star with red trail marks. However, fans and critics derided the uniform crest for its resemblance to a uterus, nicknaming it the "Mooterus". The uniform was used until the 2005–06 season. With the switch to the Reebok
Reebok
Edge uniform system, the jerseys underwent a complete redesign. The home black jersey, introduced for the 2007–08 season, features the player's number on the chest and an arched 'Dallas' in white with gold trim, with the primary logo on the shoulders. The primary away jerseys, which were used from 2007–10 and was used as an alternate for its final season, had the Stars logo crest in front and the uniform number on the top right, with the Texas alternate logo on the shoulders. An alternate white jersey based on the home black jersey was introduced for the 2008–09 season; they became the regular away uniforms for the 2010–11 season. The lettering is in green with gold and black trim. Both uniforms were used until the 2012–13 season. A new logo and uniforms were introduced for the 2013–14 season. Silver replaced gold as the tertiary color, while green (in a bright new shade called "Victory Green", similar to the old North Stars' shade of green) was reintroduced as a primary uniform color. The new logo features the letter D centering a star, symbolizing Dallas' nickname as "The Big D". The home uniforms are in green with black and white striping, while the away uniforms are in white with a green shoulder yoke, and black and green striping. The inner collar features the team name on the home uniforms, and the city name on the away uniforms. The secondary logo, with the primary inside a roundel with the team name, is featured in the shoulders.

Arena[edit]

The American Airlines Center
American Airlines Center
is the second, and current home of the Dallas
Dallas
Stars.

When the Stars first moved from Minnesota, the Stars moved into Reunion Arena, which was being shared with the NBA's Dallas
Dallas
Mavericks. For hockey, Reunion Arena held 17,001 for NHL games. Throughout the hockey history of Reunion Arena, the arena was known for having one of the worst ice surfaces in the NHL, especially in its final days hosting the Stars. The Stars played at Reunion for eight years, from 1993–2001. Before the 2001–02 NHL season, Both the Stars and the Mavericks moved into the American Airlines Center, which is in the Victory Park neighborhood of Dallas, just north of Reunion Arena. The American Airlines center holds 18,584 for Stars and NHL games. On January 24, 2007, the AAC hosted the 55th National Hockey League All-Star Game. The AAC and the Dallas
Dallas
Stars have won several local and NHL awards for "Best Fan Experience".[37] Traditions[edit] Since the 2005–06 season, the national anthems are performed by Celena Rae, a Fort Worth native and former semi-finalist on American Idol. During The Star-Spangled Banner, the fans yell the word "stars" in the lines "whose broad stripes and bright stars" and "O say does that star spangled banner yet wave."[38] At games, as part of the entertainment, a Kahlenberg KDT-123 fog horn sounds after every Stars goal.[39] When the Stars take the ice at the beginning of each game, the song "Puck Off" (also referred to as the " Dallas
Dallas
Stars Fight Song") by Pantera, is played in the arena. Members of the Dallas–Fort Worth–Arlington metropolitan area band had become friends with members of the Stars in the 1990s, especially following the team's Stanley Cup
Stanley Cup
win in 1999.[40] "Puck Off" later also became the team's goal celebration song. During the song, fans chant the only lyrics in the song, "Dallas! Stars! Dallas! Stars!" while pumping their fists in the air. After each Stars win, the Stevie Ray Vaughan
Stevie Ray Vaughan
(a Dallas native) and Double Trouble song "The House is Rockin'" is played. A song of unknown origin called "The Darkness Music" is played after nearly every away goal.[41] In recent years, fans have usually yelled, "Who cares!?" after away team goals are announced by the public address announcer.[42] The Stars have hosted a home game on New Year's Eve every year since 1997. For a period of time, the game coincided with the Big D NYE celebration (now on hiatus) on the south side of the arena in AT&T Plaza.[43] Broadcast[edit] All Dallas
Dallas
Stars games are broadcast on radio on KTCK under a five-year deal announced in January 2009.[44] KTCK replaced WBAP, which had broadcast games since the beginning of the 1994 season after KLIF has broadcast the first season in Dallas
Dallas
in 1993. Television coverage occurs primarily on Fox Sports Southwest
Fox Sports Southwest
(FSN), with KTXA (Channel 21) or FSSW+ broadcasting games when FSSW has a conflict. The Stars, along with the Buffalo Sabres, are one of only two NHL teams to simulcast the entirety of their games on TV and radio, which the team has done since their 1993 arrival in Dallas. The original broadcast team from 1993 to 1996 was Mike Fornes (play-by-play) and Ralph Strangis (color). Fornes left the broadcast team after the 1995–96 season; Strangis moved to the play-by-play role and color commentator Daryl "Razor" Reaugh was added. Although both the DFW-area's large media market and the team's fan base could theoretically support separate television and radio broadcast teams, the Stars have continued simulcasting due to the popularity of "Ralph and Razor" (as they are known) among local listeners and viewers. Like other NHL teams, the Stars now have a live radio broadcast transmitted inside American Airlines Center
American Airlines Center
on 97.5 FM. This is done because AM radio signals often cannot penetrate concrete and steel building exteriors. Strangis retired from the booth after the 2014–15 season and was replaced by Dave Strader. In June 2016, Strader was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma, a fairly rare and aggressive form of cancer of the bile duct. To begin the 2016–17 season, Reaugh assumed play-by-play duties while Strader underwent treatment. Studio analyst and former Stars defenseman, Craig Ludwig, took over as color commentator. During a break in Strader's treatment, he returned to the broadcast booth on February 18, 2017, a 4-3 overtime home win against the Tampa Bay Lightning. After the game, the Stars saluted Strader at center ice. On October 1, 2017, Strader died of cancer at the age of 62. The 2017–18 season saw Reaugh and Ludwig promoted permanently.
