The Carolina Hurricanes weren't the only NHL team to debut new threads yesterday. The Dallas Stars got in on the action, too. But the Stars revealed more than just new jerseys — they went for a full-on rebrand.
At an unveiling event in Dallas yesterday, the Stars debuted their first major logo overhaul in the 20 years the team has been in Texas. The previous logo — the word "Dallas" written above the word "Stars," with a big star underneath it — has given way to something stripped down and simpler. The new logo is a capital "D" in the center of a star.

The Stars will wear the new logo on the ice beginning in the 2013-14 season. It will be part of a whole new jersey scheme the team will start using, as well. Here's Dallas left winger Jamie Benn and Stars legend Mike Modano showing off the new jerseys yesterday:
