Stars Clinch Spot in Stanley Cup Playoffs for Fifth Time in Six Seasons

Four rounds of #NHLStats as the Stars search for their second Stanley Cup win in franchise history:

Jason Robertson was born one month after the Stars’ Stanley Cup win in 1999 and looks to lead Dallas to its first championship since. He ranked second among Stars in playoff scoring last year, behind Roope Hintz, as Dallas came within two victories of its second Final appearance in four seasons (they lost in the 2020 SCF).
 

* This is the fifth time since 2018-19 that Dallas has reached the playoffs, with Roope Hintz (19-30—49) leading the club in scoring over that span, just ahead of Miro Heiskanen (10-35—45). Hintz is either among or within reach of the top 10 on various franchise playoff scoring lists, while Heiskanen is top-three in career playoff goalsassists and points among Stars/North Stars defensemen.


Joe Pavelski enters his 16th postseason tied with former Minnesota North Stars forward Dino Ciccarelli for 13th place on the League’s career playoff goals list. Pavelski’s last playoff goal was in Game 4 of the 2023 Western Conference Final when he became the oldest player in NHL history to fend off elimination with an OT goal. Pavelski has the most career playoff games among active players who have yet to win the Stanley Cup.

Ryan Suter tops the list for most regular-season games by active players who have yet to win the Stanley Cup – a group that includes four Stars with 1,000+ contests (also Joe PavelskiJamie Benn & Matt Duchene). Suter ranks eighth all-time for regular-season games before winning the Stanley Cup (including those who never won).
