Overnight the new logos for the Dallas Stars have been leaked courtesy the team’s official iPhone app.
According to our amazing and always accurate sources, SportsLogos.Net can confirm that the new logos, which appear in the screenshots, are 100% accurate and will be used by the team in the 2013-14 NHL season. The leak was spotted and tweeted to us by @DamnOldNylon
The new look eliminates gold from the colour scheme, a colour which has been a part of the franchise identity (in various shades of yellow or gold) since their first game as the Minnesota North Stars way back in 1967.

Silver (or gray) replaces the gold — totally expecting the club to say something lame like “the silver of the Stanley Cup is our gold medal” — while green and black are retained.

Stay tuned for more updates as they come in, the new look will officially be unveiled on June 4th at 6pm CT.
