The Dallas Stars will have a new head coach and GM at the helm when next season starts and to help make the feeling that the organization is off to a fresh, new start, the club is getting set to unveil a new look for the team. A new logo is said to be launched on June 4 at a special fan event, according to the Stars official website. But it appears that the new logo has already been leaked.
According to a Stars message board, a fan stumbled upon what could be the new look for their uniforms on the club’s iPhone wallpaper section. You can check out Puck Daddy’s article that has a snippet of the new look logo here. In the article, author Greg Wyshynski has a quote from Stars owner Tom Gaglardi about what he wanted to encompass in the new look for the team, courtesy of Defending Big D.
“What I wanted for this franchise was a logo and a look and a crest that when you look at it has timeless, original-six, vintage, classic qualities to it, and that’s been the theme of what we’ve been pursuing,” Gaglardi told us in January. I then asked if that was to say that he hoped this new jersey would be one that would stick around for the long-haul and he answered simply “Yes.”
The alleged new logo keeps the historic star to it but loses the ties to the Minnesota North Star days that had the star tucked in underneath the ‘A’ in Stars.
While it may be disappointing to some to lose the connection to the Minnesota roots, this organization has developed into a successful, championship winning team since it’s time in Texas and a new look that incorporates some of their own history is important.
Wyshynski notes that the Stars home jerseys will be primarily green with the new look silver, black and green logo. Out is the gold and green and I personally like the new look.
