The 2010–11 Dallas Stars season was the 44th season for the National Hockey League franchise that was established on June 5, 1967,[1] and 18th season since the franchise relocated to Dallas to start the 1993–94 NHL season.

The Stars posted a regular season record of 42 wins, 29 losses, and 11 overtime/shootout losses for 95 points. Despite having a winning record, the Stars failed to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs for the third consecutive season.

Off-season[edit]

The Stars decided to not re-sign unrestricted free agent goalie Marty Turco. The Stars signed free agent goalie Andrew Raycroft, formerly of the Vancouver Canucks, as a likely backup goalie to Kari Lehtonen. Mike Modano left the team to sign with the Detroit Red Wings.

Regular season[edit]

On February 21, 2011, among an extended skid, GM Joe Nieuwendyk traded defenseman Matt Niskanen and forward James Neal to the Pittsburgh Penguins for defenseman Alex Goligoski. After failing to make the playoffs by losing their final game of the season, head coach Marc Crawford was relieved of his coaching duties.[2]

Playoffs[edit]

The Stars failed to qualify for the playoffs. With 95 points, the Stars tied a record set by the 2006–07 Colorado Avalanche for the team with the highest point total in a season that failed to make the playoffs.
