Here they are:
The club also announced today that it will retire former captain Mike Modano’s number 9 on March 8, 2014.
Modano is the franchise’s all-time scoring leader, with 1,359 points in 1,459 games, and helped them to a Stanley Cup title in 1999.
“Mike Modano is a once-in-a-generation player and an American hockey icon,” said Stars President and CEO Jim Lites in a release. “His contributions to our team, including winning the Stanley Cup and helping build hockey in Texas are immeasurable. We’re proud of everything Mike accomplished in a Stars uniform and are honored that his number 9 will hang in our rafters.”
Neal Broten (No. 7), Bill Goldsworthy (No. 8), and Bill Masterton (No. 19) have already had their numbers retired by the franchise. Of those three, only Broten played in Dallas after the team moved from Minnesota.
As for the new duds, the Stars’ website has the full story. Apparently, they “looked at more than 230 variations of the uniform, including several different color schemes, striping combinations, and logos.”
