Dallas Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk announced today that the club has hired former NHL player Gary Roberts as a player development consultant.
Roberts, 44, has trained several young players during the past few off-seasons near his home in Ontario, including the Stars’ James Neal, Florida’s Stephen Weiss and Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos, among others.
“We’re very pleased to officially add Gary Roberts as a player development consultant for our hockey club,” said Nieuwendyk. “Obviously I know Gary well and what he’s all about. He’s a first-class person and I think our young players will benefit from his years of experience.”
