“It’s early in the season and I am convinced they are the right people to provide direction, vision, management and guidance that get this team positioned to win another division crown.”

Hull, 43, is in his second season in the front office for the Dallas Stars. He was named as  Special Advisor to Hockey Operations this past summer, assisting in all areas of Hockey Operations. Hull served as Special Assistant to the President the previous season, helping in areas of business operations, broadcasting and marketing. He retired as a player in 2005 after an illustrious 19-year career spent with Calgary, St. Louis, Dallas, Detroit and Phoenix. In 1,269 games, Hull netted 741 goals – good for third in NHL history behind only Wayne Gretzky and Gordie Howe. A member of the 1999 Stanley Cup Champion Dallas Stars, Hull spent three seasons as a player in Dallas from 1999-2001 (218 games, 95 goals and 101 assists for 196 points).

Jackson, 54, has spent 20 total years in Hockey Operations for the Stars over two different stints, including the last seven seasons as Assistant General Manager, where he has management and oversight over the club’s amateur program and scouting efforts. Jackson also assisted in the evaluation of players as it relates to movement within the organization including the entry draft, trades and free agent signings. He served as Assistant General Manager for the Atlanta Thrashers from 1999-2000. Jackson has also served as a coach and general manager in the Western Hockey League for the Brandon Wheat Kings. The Manning, Alberta, native was drafted by the Boston Bruins in 1972 and played two seasons in the minors before beginning his career as a hockey executive.

Hull and Jackson will begin their new responsibilities immediately.
