In a statement, Stars GM Jim Nill said:
“The Dallas Stars expect all of our employees to act with integrity and exhibit professional behavior while working for and representing our organization. This decision was made due to unprofessional conduct inconsistent with the core values and beliefs of the Dallas Stars and the National Hockey League.”
GM Jim Nill press conference held earlier today:
Prior to joining the Stars, Montgomery coached Denver for five seasons, earning a 125-57-26 record during that span. He led the Pioneers to a national championship in 2017. He also won a national championship as a player with the University of Maine in 1993.
Wishing Jim Montgomery and his wife, Emily, and two sons, JP and Colin and two daughters Ava and Olivia Kate the best with this unexpected news. Montgomery remains a treasured member of the Pioneer family.
