Before the game against Nashville last night, the Dallas Stars announced the start of the Dallas Stars Hall of Fame. this will recognize players and staff members who have been with the Stars for a long time. You can see more info on this at DallasStars.com/HallOfFame.
The hall of fame is broken down into two categories which people will be voted into. One of the categories is Player which will include former players that have played for the franchise. The other category will be Builder which will include coaches and Executive level staff.
They announced that any former player that has their jersey already retired by the franchise will be automatically inducted into the hall of fame. Once a player gets their jersey retired, they will be inducted into the hall of fame the year after that. Players can still get inducted if their jerseys aren’t retired in the AAC rafters.
To be nominated in the builder category, a person must have been employed by the club for at least 10 years or have won the Stanley Cup or another major award while employed. Other criteria are that they have to demonstrate exceptional attributes and contributions to the franchise on and off the ice. The
Fans will also have an input on who makes it into the hall of fame. the fans will vote on who they want to be the fan nomination and it will be added to the pool for consideration by the committee.
