Per stars.nhl.com, the Dallas Stars have replaced co-GMs Les Jackson and Brett Hull with former Stars Stanley Cup MVP, Joe Nieuwendyk. Both Jackson and Hull remain with the organization in new positions.
Nieuwy returns to Dallas after having spent the previous season as Special Assistant to the GM in Toronto.
Having won the Cup three times with three different teams, the Stars hope Nieuwyndek, 42, brings his winning ways to his latest passion...the hockey Executive.
The 1999 MVP was and still is immensley popular in Dallas and the move, as it ripples through the fan base, will surely help the enthusiasm for the return of regular season hockey in Dallas, TX.
