The Dallas Stars announced today that the organization will retire the number 9 in honor of former Stars icon Mike Modano on Saturday, March 8, 2014 against the Minnesota Wild. The announcement was made at a special event at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.

"Mike Modano is a once-in-a-generation player and an American hockey icon," said Dallas Stars President and CEO Jim Lites.
