The ’02-’03 Dallas Stars are the two-time defending representatives for the former North Stars. They were the 20th seed in the inaugural Ultimate NHL Playoff and were the 16th seed in the Second Annual UNP. They the same demise in the two tournaments as they were eliminated in the Third Round by two incredible teams from the ’70s, including the eventual champions in the Second Annual tourney.

Players to Watch:

  • C – Mike Modano – A true legend of the game and one of my favorites ever. He is the greatest Dallas Star ever.
  • D – Sergei Zubov – He sits second all-time in scoring in Stars history, behind only the Modano. He excelled at the long outlet pass once the league eliminated the two-line pass rule.
  • RW – Jere Lehtinen – One of the more “underrated” players of his time, in my opinion. He was a great two-way player who put up 20-goal seasons consistently.

The tournament results will be posted on the next weekday at 1 pm EST!
