The Blackout Dallas team remains anxious with Dallas Stars training camp now underway. It will not be long before we are previewing and reviewing Stars regular season action. For now, the annual “All-Time Stars” series steps up to the plate.
We are continue our trip down NHL memory lane by highlighting 5 players we forgot wore a Dallas Stars sweater.
Mats Zuccarello (2018-19): The Dallas Stars acquired Mats Zuccarello at the trade deadline from the New York Rangers. A broken arm sustained in his first game wearing Victory Green immediately put Zuccarello on the shelf. He returned to the lineup at the onset of the playoffs, toughing out 13 games with cortisone injections.
Jaromir Jagr (2012-13): Jaromir Jagr played for so many NHL teams on the back half of his career that it’s easy to forget he was a Dallas Stars. Jagr was 40 when he signed a one-year deal with Big D and scored 14 goals. He was traded to the Boston Bruins in April, as the Stars struggled to remain competitive in the Pacific Division.
Sheldon Souray (2011-12): The Dallas Stars signed Sheldon Souray to a one-year deal in hopes of shoring up their blue line. Souray came off an injury-riddled final season with the Edmonton Oilers and took on a more defensive role with the Stars. The Alberta native scored his 100th NHL goal in Dallas before signing with the Anaheim Ducks during 2012 offseason.
