DALLAS - The Dallas Stars are taking the interim tag off co-general managers Brett Hull and Les Jackson.
The NHL team said Thursday that Hull and Jackson have signed contracts to remain in their positions through the 2010-11 season. They were named interim co-GMs last November after Doug Armstrong was fired.
"Brett and Les have earned these extensions, doing an excellent job in leading this hockey club this past season," team owner Tom Hicks said in a statement. "The move to make them interim co-general managers was a different approach that proved to be strategic."
The Stars posted a 38-23-4 regular-season record after Hull and Jackson took over. The club advanced to the Western Conference final before losing to the Detroit Red Wings.
"This unique combination of talents gives us many advantages for our hockey club," Hicks said. "Signing Les and Brett to these contracts provides stability for the future. We look forward to building on this year's relative successes."
