Dallas Stars Name Paul Jerrard Assistant Coach


Frisco, Tex. – Dallas Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk announced today that the club has named Paul Jerrard as an assistant coach. He has been affiliated with the Stars for the past six seasons as an assistant coach with the team’s primary development affiliate.

“We are very excited to name Paul Jerrard to our coaching staff,” said Nieuwendyk. “He has great history with our organization, as well as with Glen Gulutzan while they were both coaching at our AHL franchise in Cedar Park. Paul’s professionalism and work ethic will rub off on this organization and our players. He will help the Dallas Stars take the next step in getting back to the playoffs.”

Jerrard, 46, spent the previous two seasons as an assistant coach working with Gulutzan and the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League. He helped the club reach the AHL Playoffs in both campaigns, including the Stars’ run to the Calder Cup Finals in the franchise’s inaugural season of 2009-10. Jerrard assisted Texas in posting a cumulative 87-56-17 record (.587 points percentage) during the regular season and a 16-14 (.533 winning percentage) record during the playoffs with Texas. 

The Winnipeg, Manitoba, native boasts a decade of coaching experience, including two years as an assistant coach with Pennsylvania's Hershey Bears of the AHL prior to joining the Dallas Stars organization as an assistant with the Iowa Stars (AHL) for three seasons (2005-2008). In 2002-03, Jerrard was responsible for video as the Colorado Avalanche's assistant coach. He also coached for four years at his alma mater, Lake Superior State University. Prior to joining Lake Superior State, Jerrard spent one year as Assistant Coach with Lowell in 1998-99.

Jerrard spent 10 years as a defenseman in professional hockey, having been drafted by the New York Rangers in the ninth round (173rd overall) of the 1983 Entry Draft. He was traded to the Minnesota North Stars in October of 1988 and skated in five games for Minnesota that season. Jerrard played parts of six seasons with Kalamazoo (IHL) and was a member of the 1997 Calder Cup winning Hershey Bears. Jerrard is certified in strength and conditioning (CSCS) and is a member of the National Strength Coaches Association (NSCA).

Paul and his wife Cheryl have two children, Meaghan and Catherine.
