The Rick Bowness era has ended in Dallas. Bowness took over as head coach of the Stars 32 games into the 2019-20 season when Jim Montgomery was fired for personal conduct issues. Bowness did a respectable job and departed with an 89-62-25 record and two playoff appearances, including a berth in the 2020 Stanley Cup Final. Bowness had a team that lacked goal scoring and depth. Not to mention dominant goaltending. He got about as much as anyone could have out of the group. Dallas got a big name replacement for the new head coach. Pete DeBoer arrives from the Vegas Golden Knights.

Last year the Dallas Stars finished with a record of 46-30-6 to finish 4th in the Central Division. The Stars ranked 21st for goal scoring, 11th for power play efficiency, 15th for goals against, and 19th for penalty killing. Dallas was eliminated in the first round of the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs by the Calgary Flames in a seven game series.

General manager Jim Nill has been in his current role since April 2013. He arrived in Dallas from the Detroit Red Wings, where he was part of a management team that won four Stanley Cup championships. Nill has produced five playoff teams during his tenure.

After missing the playoffs, the Vegas Golden Knights unexpectedly fired Pete DeBoer in July. Injuries and poor goaltending decimated Vegas, but DeBoer took the blame. DeBoer was 98-50-12 at Vegas and has a career NHL coaching record of 513-379-123. DeBoer previously led the New Jersey Devils and San Jose Sharks to the Stanley Cup Final.

Joe Pavelski, age 38, is one of the most remarkable players in the NHL. The Wisconsin Badgers product was picked 205th overall in the 2003 NHL Draft by the San Jose Sharks. Pavelski has 421 regular season and 64 career playoff goals. Last year he scored 27 goals and 54 assists as one of the few legitimate scoring threats for Dallas.

Left wing Jason Robertson offers hope for the future. Robertson, age 23, scored 41 goals with 38 assists and a +16 last year.

Dallas Stars History

Founded as the Minnesota North Stars in the 1967 NHL Great Expansion, when the league doubled from six to 12 teams, the franchise moved to Dallas in 1993. When the North Stars couldn’t get a new arena, they decided to head to Texas. The Dallas Stars were a major hit from the very start and won the 1999 Stanley Cup championship.

When the Stars arrived in Dallas, it was at the height of the Dallas Cowboys dynasty in which they won three Super Bowls from 1992 through 1995. The Cowboys were bigger than life in those days, yet the Stars could carve out a niche for themselves. Dallas played to sellout crowds for their first several seasons in Big D. Although interest eventually waned on the Stars, that was due to a mediocre product on the ice more than a hockey problem.

In 2011 Tom Gaglardi bought the Stars after a year of negotiations while the franchise went through bankruptcy. Gagliardi worked hard to rebuild the front office. Most importantly, he brought back Jim Lites as the team president. Lites had previously served in that role for the Stars under previous ownership.

Gagliardi hired general manager Jim Nill in April 2013. Nill was an executive for the Detroit Red Wings before taking the job. At that time, the Wings were considered a modern NHL franchise in which Nill had a leading role. The management team has brought the Stars back to respectability and a berth in the 2020 Stanley Cup Final.

Dallas hosted the Winter Classic at the famed Cotton Bowl on January 1, 2020, in front of over 85,000 fans in a 4-2 win over Nashville. It was the ultimate testament to their popularity in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
