Stu Barnes hangs up the skates

From TSN:

Dallas Stars centre Stu Barnes has retired following a 16-year career, and has signed a two-year contract to join the Stars’ coaching staff as an assistant coach.

“We congratulate Stu on an outstanding playing career and we are very excited that he will now join our coaching staff,” said Co-General Manager Les Jackson. “Stu was a consummate professional on and off the ice throughout his career, and was the type of player who always exhibited the qualities you would associate with a future coach. Stu will be an excellent addition to our staff, which we feel is among the best in the league.”

Stu Barnes was one of the classiest players in the NHL.  He worked hard, did all the little things well and was a positive force in the locker room.  He was one of those players whose name you didn’t hear too often, but that actually meant he was doing his job well.  Congrats to him on a solid career.

I’ll leave you with the classic Stuuuuuu Barnes call from legendary announcer Rick Jeanneret. (Thanks to a4u2fear for the video from youtube)
