It’s that time of the week again, and again we’re leaving the decision in your hands! Who do you want to hear about in this week’s edition of Flashback Friday?

Richard Matvichuk spent 12 years with the Dallas Stars, traveling with players like Mike Modano, Joe Nieuwendyk and Guy Carbonneau. He made a reputation for himself as one of the team’s bad boys, riding Harley’s and never shying from a confrontation on the ice. He played 733 regular season games with Dallas, and celebrated hoisting the Stanley Cup with Derian Hatcher, Brett Hull and Jere Lehtninen.

Pat Verbeek spent the first few years of his professional career bouncing between three teams before joining the Stars for the organization’s first season in Dallas. His stint as a Star was far too short-lived for some fans, especially considering how instrumental he was in pushing the team toward Stanley Cup greatness. He played in 241 games in his three seasons in Dallas before heading to Detroit. He returned in 2001, and skated in 64 games in his final season as a professional hockey player.

Take your pick and we’ll give you the rundown on the individual’s career as a Star, as a professional hockey player, and we’ll let you in on what he’s up to today.
