Jim Nill of the Stars named NHL General Manager of the Year

Jim Nill, the general manager of the Dallas Stars, was awarded the Jim Gregory General Manager of the Year Award on Monday night. Nill received 17 out of 42 votes, winning by a wide margin. This is a testament to his success in leading the Stars to the Western Conference final for the second consecutive season before falling to Edmonton in six games.

Nill’s accomplishments include being named the GM of the Month in December and January, as well as acquiring defenseman Chris Tanev at the trade deadline without sacrificing a first-round pick or the organization’s top prospect. Nill is known for his talent as an evaluator of talent and brings a wealth of experience to the Stars organization, having won four Stanley Cups during his tenure with the Detroit Red Wings.

Nill’s award was voted on during the playoffs and recognizes his exceptional work in guiding the Stars to success in this season. Despite being competitors, he remains old friends with Ken Holland, his former junior hockey teammate who is also a general manager in these Western Conference finals. They share a common goal of reaching another Stanley Cup together.
