On Monday, the Stars will introduce Jim Nill as their new GM, as club owner Tom Gaglardi confirmed the hiring to the Dallas Morning News.
Nill, the Vice President & Assistant General Manager of the Red Wings, has spent 19 seasons as a member of Detroit's management team.
The 54-year-old Nill joined the Red Wings' front office in the summer of 1994 following three seasons with the Ottawa Senators. He began his stint with the Senators as an amateur scout and was promoted to pro scout after just two seasons with the team.
Prior to Ottawa, Nill enjoyed a nine-season NHL career as a right wing with the Boston Bruins, Vancouver Canucks, St. Louis Blues, Winnipeg Jets and Red Wings. His NHL numbers include 58 goals, 87 assists and 854 penalty minutes in 524 regular-season games.
Nill was named GM of Team Canada for the 2004 IIHF Men's World Championships in the Czech Republic.
Gulutzan, 41, was in his second season with the Stars after being named the 21st head coach in Stars franchise history on June 17, 2011.
Prior to his coaching tenure in Dallas, Gulutzan spent two seasons as the head coach of the Texas Stars, Dallas' AHL affiliate. He also served as GM and head coach of the Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL from 2003 to 2009.
