The Dallas Stars are set to unveil their new logo as part of a big day of announcements on June 4th, but the logo they’re unveiling may have been leaked. The team’s official iPhone app briefly displayed a rather strange logo as it’s background which led some fans to believe this was the team’s new logo and that assumption only grew when the logo was taken off the app soon after.

If this is indeed the new logo for the Stars, it’s clearly a step in a completely new direction for the franchise. Owner John Gaglardi stated recently that the team will not only be adopting a new logo but will be adjusting the current color scheme for the team as well. This potentially new logo represents all of those things Gaglardi was talking about but the logo seems a bit AHL to be featured on the front of the Stars’ new sweaters.
It’s a bold new look and a far cry from the old logo, but it seems more of an Arena League logo than the vintage style Gaglardi was speaking of when he talked about the logo on 1310 The Ticket earlier this week.
However, before you start judging the new logo too harshly, it’s likely that this robust design is going to be the shoulder patch on the Stars new uniforms and the ‘D’ that is superimposed over the star will be the main logo featured on the sweaters of the players.
We won’t know for certain until the June 4th unveiling but with the logo now potentially leaked, the attention will focus even more so on the big announcement the Stars have planned in addition to showing off their new threads. Many believe that the Stars will be unveiling a new head coach along with the uniforms and unlike the logo that was potentially leaked, who the head coach will be remains a mystery.
