The Dallas Stars are still looking for their next head coach, and are looking at a number of candidates in order to find their next man.
According to The Athletic’s Craig Custance, the Stars have roughly 10-15 names on their list of potential candidates, and no current front-runner has been named.
Dallas will have a lot of work ahead of them as they try to find the successor to Ken Hitchcock, who retired from head coaching at the end of the season.

Stars, Tyler Seguin Agree to Contract Extension
Seguin’s new deal carries an average annual value of $9.85 million and kicks in for the 2019-2020 season, he currently has one more year on his current contract at $5.75 million, and his new deal will make him the highest player on the team.
“I’m thrilled to have this signed going into the season,” Seguin said, according to the Stars’ website. “Dallas has become home to me and I love this organization. In my time over the last five years with Tom Gaglardi and Jim Nill, it is clear how bad they want to win and have a model franchise. To be a part of that leadership group for the next nine seasons is an honor, and I can’t wait to get this season started with my teammates.”
Stars Looking to Sign Tyler Seguin To Extension Next Summer
The Dallas Stars are looking towards next summer as the time to work out a long-term contract extension with Tyler Seguin, who is entering the final year of his current six-year, $34.5-million contract.
Seguin, 26, was eligible to ink a new deal on July 1st.
“I hope so,” Stars general manager Jim Nill said, according to Stars team reporter Mark Stepneski. “But I think I have mentioned from Day 1 that I don’t want people to panic if he is not signed when the season starts.
“I think the biggest thing is we need to have a good season – get off to a good start. I hope he is signed by then, but I know if he isn’t, we’ll get a good year out of him and go from there. But like I said, I am hopeful we can get it done. We’ll have to see.”
Seguin had a solid season last year for the Stars, posting a team-leading 40 goals, to go along with 78 points, which was second on the team.
“There are a lot of different things that go into this. There are signing bonuses, lockout protections,” Nill added. “There are a lot of different angles to these negotiations that come into play. We’re just continuing the dialogue and going from there.”
