Stars Going Green with New Look

Dallas will get new primary logo, new dominant color in 2013

Yes, it's finally happening!

According to Dallas Morning News beat writer Mike Heika, the Dallas Stars will look "drastically different" in 2013 with a revamp that includes a green jersey and a brand new logo.

Heika posted these new details on his Dallas Stars Blog this evening. Here's an excerpt:

This came up in conversations today, and I know a lot of you have been asking about it.

The Stars have asked for an extension on their deadline to submit new uniforms for the 2013-14 season, and have received it from the NHL. They probably have until late January now. They are awaiting prototypes from Reebok so that they can be approved by the team and submitted to the NHL in time. Among the key points:

  • They are drastically different from the current look.
  • There will be a new logo.
  • Green is the dominant color.

Heika also added that there's a chance the redesign could hold until 2014-15 if the team doesn't think it's on the right track. But it seems like they're ready to pull the trigger.

On a personal note, I'm thrilled to hear they're moving back toward green. We know design is cyclical and hopefully the decision makers are starting to realize that black and dark blue don't make your team stand out or attract fans to your jerseys. Maybe we're moving back toward another age of bright colors like the '60s and '70s... just a little less gaudy.

Anyway, this is great news and I can't wait to see what the Stars go with. For sure, it'll be far better than what they have now! Right?
