Longtime Stars executive Lites moving from CEO to chairman


FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Longtime Dallas Stars executive Jim Lites is moving from his role as CEO to chairman. The move will lessen his day-to-day duties with the NHL team. The Stars say Brad Alberts, their president since March 2018, will remain in that role while adding the CEO title and responsibilities as well. Lites had two previous stints with the Stars since 1993 before returning in 2011 as president and CEO after Tom Gaglardi bought the team. Lites was also the team president when the Stars won the Stanley Cup in 1999 and went back in the championship series the following season.
