Stars Name Maxwell Professional Scout

July 26, 2006


FRISCO, Tex. -- Dallas Stars General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today that the club has named Kevin Maxwell as professional scout for the team.

"Kevin has been associated, both playing and scouting, with the National Hockey League for many years and we are happy to have him on board," said Armstrong. "We think Kevin's vast experience will be an asset to our organization."

Maxwell, 46, has served as the assistant director of professional scouting for the New York Islanders over the past nine seasons giving input into the addition of active professional players to the Islanders' roster. The Edmonton, Alberta native helped the Islanders acquire Jason Blake from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for a conditional draft pick in 2001. Since coming to the Islanders, Blake has posted three straight 20-goal seasons and also appeared in the 2006 Winter Olympics for the United States.

Prior to joining the Islanders, Maxwell served as a pro scout for four years, the final two as a director, with the Hartford Whalers. Following his retirement as a player in 1988, he scouted for the Philadelphia Flyers for four seasons.

Selected by the Minnesota North Stars in the third round (63rd overall) in the 1979 NHL Entry Draft, Maxwell was a member of the 1980 Canadian Olympic Team and played eight seasons in pro hockey, including 66 NHL contests with Minnesota, the Colorado Rockies, and the New Jersey Devils. During the 1981 playoffs with the North Stars, Maxwell appeared in 16 post-season games and registered three goals and four assists for seven points with 24 penalty minutes, including playing in the Stanley Cup Finals against the Islanders.
