Yesterday the Stars released details on how the team will celebrate their 25th anniversary. Including the retiring of #26 for Jere Lehtinen.

The Stars will retire the number 26 in honor of former Stars right wing Jere Lehtinen on Friday, Nov. 24 against the Calgary Flames. The three-time Frank J. Selke Trophy winner as the NHL's top defensive forward spent his entire 14-season NHL career in Dallas where he recorded 514 points (243-271=514) in 875 career regular-season games. Lehtinen's No. 26 will be the fifth sweater to be retired by the franchise and the third since the team moved to Texas. Lehtinen joins Neal Broten (No. 7), Bill Goldsworthy (No. 8), Mike Modano (No. 9) and Bill Masterton (No. 19) as the only players in franchise history to have their number retired. (Stars)
