The Dallas Stars have relieved Joe Nieuwendyk of his duties as general manager.

The dismissal came the day after Dallas completed a 22-22-4 season. The Stars missed the playoffs for the fifth season in a row.

"Joe Nieuwendyk has represented the Dallas Stars extremely well as the club's general manager and has helped put pieces in place that will once again turn this team into a contender," said Stars owner Tom Gaglardi. "I would like to thank Joe for his contributions to this hockey club and wish him and his family only the best in the future.
 
"However, I believe it is time to take this organization in a different direction with our intentions set on returning to the elite of the National Hockey League. My commitment to the Dallas Stars is unwavering, and I am confident we have found the right general manager to return us to the pathway of success."

According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, all indications are that the Stars will replace Nieuwendyk with Detroit Red Wings assistant general manager Jim Nill.

The club will introduce the new general manager on Monday.

Dreger also reports that head coach Glen Gulutzan's future is still unclear and a decision on his role is expected to made at a later date. Dallas holds an option for a third season for Gulutzan, who is 64-57-9 in his two seasons.

Nieuwendyk was named the Stars' general manager on June 1, 2009 and in the four seasons under his leadership, the team failed to make the post-season.

Nill has been a member of the Detroit Red Wings management team for almost 20 years and has been part of four Stanley Cup winning teams.
