Dallas Stars to unveil 20th Anniversary Team

Here’s the release

The Dallas Stars announced that the 20th Anniversary Team, presented by Dr Pepper, will be unveiled during the club’s remaining home games this season. Over the course of the last month, fans have had an opportunity to vote on DallasStars.com for who they would want to play on their all-time Dallas Stars team.

Members of the 20th Anniversary Team will be honored at home games with special appearances, promotions and interactive content on DallasStars.com. The Stars will honor at least one member of the Anniversary Team at each home game beginning with Thursday night (goaltender Marty Turco) and Saturday night (forward Brenden Morrow).

The number of votes garnered for each player determined what position in the lineup they have. Twelve forwards, six defensemen and two goaltenders were selected by the fans for the team out of more than 200 players that have skated for the Dallas Stars. In total, over half-a-million online votes were cast. The remaining honorees will be announced on a weekly basis for the remainder of the season.

“The contributions that these players have made to the Dallas Stars over the years will never be forgotten – not by us, not by our fans, not by anyone who has been or ever will be associated with this team,” said Dallas Stars President Jim Lites. “They helped build this team from the ground up, and they continue to inspire new generations of aspiring hockey players to reach for the stars.”

Fans are encouraged to visit DallasStars.com to view content and videos honoring the 20th Anniversary Team.
