The Dallas Stars made it official on Friday morning and announced that Lindy Ruff will be the 22nd coach in franchise history. Ruff replaces Glen Gulutzan, who was dismissed following the 2013 season.
Ruff, the long-time coach in Buffalo, was fired 17 games into the season after the Sabres stumbled out of the gate with a 6-10-1 record ending what had been the longest coaching tenure in the NHL.
He spent parts of 15 seasons in Buffalo and compiled a 571-432-162 record that included eight trips to the playoffs.
