Brenden Morrow has signed a one-day contract with the Dallas Stars.
Morrow did that so that he could retire as a member of the team that drafted him. Morrow spent the first 835 games of his 991 career with the Stars before participating in stints with Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Tampa Bay. He finished with 265 goals, 575 points, and 1,362 penalty minutes. He also served as the Stars captain from 2006-13. Over the course of his career he enjoyed some deep playoff runs, including his trip to the Stanley Cup Final in 2015, but he was never able to raise the Cup. In his retirement letter, he mentioned, "I’ll always be thankful for the fans who helped us build a hockey culture in Texas. Stars fans love the game for all the right reasons. I wanted to give them a Stanley Cup so, so badly. It just wasn’t in the cards, but I’ll always be proud of what we accomplished together." Thu, Mar 17, 2016 02:09:00 PM
