DALLAS - The Dallas Stars have unveiled a new logo and jersey in a celebration of several changes coming on the 20th anniversary of the franchise's move to Texas.
The logo revealed Tuesday features a "D'' over a slight alteration of the familiar star that was part of the logo when the Minnesota North Stars moved south in 1993. The words "Dallas Stars" are in a circle around the logo on the jersey's sleeve.
The Stars also announced to several thousand fans at a theatre in downtown Dallas that they will retire the No. 9 of franchise icon Mike Modano during a home game on March 8.
The club also said it will hold training camp in nearby Fort Worth for the first time.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
