Rick Bowness venturing endlessly as Dallas Stars lead trainer.
Bowness, 67, has instructed a bigger number of games than some other mentor in NHL history.
Change is coming for the Dallas Stars.
After a first-round season finisher leave, Rick Bowness has chosen to step away as the group’s lead trainer and the association will be on the chase after another pioneer heading into the 2022-23 season, the group declared Friday.
It has been a distinction for me, and my family, to address the Stars and the city of Dallas.”
Bowness, 67, has instructed more games (as a colleague and a lead trainer) than some other mentor in NHL history. He joined Dallas as an associate mentor in 2018, and it was a task that convinced him not to resign after his last season in Tampa Bay left him prepared for retirement. Whenever Jim Montgomery was terminated in December 2019, Bowness took over as the group’s in-between time lead trainer.

“Rick is perhaps the most regarded and dearest individual to have at any point trained in the NHL,” Stars senior supervisor Jim Nill said.
“His devotion and obligation to the game, and the effect that he’s made on innumerable players, mentors and care staff all through his fifty years in the League is unequaled. He has committed his life to our game, and we are respected to say that the Dallas Stars are important for his heritage.”
Under Bowness, the Stars arrived at the Stanley Cup Final in 2020 and he marked a two-year agreement after that. Bowness had a 89-62-25 record as the Stars lead trainer, a .577 focuses rate that positions sixteenth in the association since Dec.
