Two-way Lehtinen earmarked Hitchcocks first era
It was the two-way play of Dallas Stars Jere Lehtinen that help
lead Ken Hitchcock’s Dallas Stars to a Stanley Cup Championship! The
Dallas Stars in celebration of the franchise’s 25th Anniversary Season
during the 2017-18 season, retired number 26 in honor of former Stars
right wing Jere Lehtinen with the season opening Victory Green Carpet
Walk, Reunion Nights at American Airlines Center and Retro Night. The
Stars retired the number 26 in honor of former Stars right wing Jere
Lehtinen on Friday, Nov. 24 against the Calgary Flames. The three-time
Frank J. Selke Trophy winner as the NHL’s top defensive forward spent
his entire 14-season NHL career in Dallas where he recorded 514 points
(243-271=514) in 875 career regular-season games. Lehtinen’s No. 26
will be the fifth sweater to be retired by the franchise and the third
since the team moved to Texas. Lehtinen joins Neal Broten (No. 7),
Bill Goldsworthy (No. 8), Mike Modano (No. 9) and Bill Masterton (No.
19) as the only players in franchise history to have their number
retired.
The Stars remain competitive vying for the last playoff spot in the west.
