Lindy Ruff will start the next chapter of his hockey coaching career in Dallas this year. 571 wins with the Buffalo Sabres have Lindy as the 12th-winningest coach in NHL history.
Stars GM Jim Nill says, "One of the trademarks of successful organizations is their ability to have continuity and stability for an extended period of time," said Nill. "It is clear from Lindy's record, and from our own conversations, that we have found the right person to provide that stability and lead this club to the next level. His steady hand and experience will prove invaluable in returning our team as a top-tier contender in the NHL."
Ruff issued a statement via the team website as well. "I am honored to be joining the Dallas Stars organization," said Ruff. "After speaking at length with Jim Nill, it was clear that all the right pieces are coming together to return this club to the upper-echelon of the NHL. I look forward to leading its resurgence."
