Stars Lock Up Tippett
Stars Lock Up Their Head Coach Through 2008

The Dallas Stars extended the contract of Head Coach Dave Tippett today, locking up their bench boss through the 2007-08 season. His contract was set to expire on June 30, 2007. In addition, the Stars also announced that Associate Coach Rick Wilson, Assistant Coach Mark Lamb, and Assistant/Goaltending Coach Andy Moog have all signed two-year extensions through the 2007-08 season. Each of the current contracts of the Stars' associate/assistant coaches were due to expire on June 30, 2006.

Tippett, 44, is in his fourth season with the hockey club and boasts an overall record of 135-68-30 during his tenure as head coach of the Dallas Stars - the best record among active NHL coaches. He was named the 19th head coach in Stars franchise history on May 21, 2002. Tippett notched his 100th career NHL win on Nov. 18 vs. Columbus and coached in his 200th career NHL game on Jan. 2 at Los Angeles.

"We're extremely pleased to secure Dave Tippett as head coach of the Dallas Stars through the 2007-08 season," Armstrong said. "Dave has done an outstanding job as head coach of this club and we expect that to continue for years to come. We're equally pleased to extend the contracts of our entire coaching staff for two more seasons. We feel we have an extremely cohesive coaching staff and the results of their hard work speak for themselves."

Tippett went 46-21-15 in his first season as Dallas' head coach, winning the Pacific Division crown and posting by far the best record for a Stars coach in his first 82 games. The team's 111 points were the fourth-highest in NHL history for a first-year head coach. Tippett continued his success during the 2003-04 season, posting a 41-27-12 mark for 97 points, and currently has this year's edition of the Dallas Stars poised for another division title.

"These moves will provide the club a great deal of stability as we continue to pursue our ultimate goal of bringing the Stanley Cup back to Dallas," said Tippett. "I'm excited that the entire staff will remain together and we look forward to continued success both on and off the ice."

Wilson, 55, is currently in his fourth season as associate coach and his 14th with the Stars organization, with his coaching emphasis on the club's defensemen. During his tenure in Dallas, he has been part of six division championships, two Western Conference crowns, two Presidents' Trophies and the 1999 Stanley Cup. Wilson has over 19 years experience as a coach in the NHL.

Lamb, 41, is in his fourth season as an assistant coach for Dallas, with his coaching emphasis on the Stars' forwards and offense. He has also served as an assistant coach for Edmonton and played in 403 career NHL games with six different teams.

Moog, 46, is in his fourth season as the Stars' assistant/goaltending coach. He works closely with Dallas management in the areas of goaltender coaching and advising, pro scouting and consulting in goaltender personnel decisions. A three-time Stanley Cup winner with Edmonton, Moog appeared in 175 games for the Stars from 1993-1997. Moog has served as goaltending consultant for Team Canada at the past two Winter Olympic Games.
