Longtime NHL head coach Ken Hitchcock announced his retirement on Friday following 22 seasons with the Dallas Stars, Philadelphia Flyers, Columbus Blue Jackets and St. Louis Blues.

Hitchcock led the Stars to the Stanley Cup in 1999, the only championship of his career, and returned to Dallas last April for his final season behind the bench. The team confirmed he’ll remain within the organization as a consultant.

“We were honored to have Ken as our head coach and it was fitting that he finished his coaching here,” Stars owner Tom Gaglardi said. “He is a certain Hockey Hall of Fame coach and he left a lasting legacy wherever he went. He will forever be a Dallas Star and I look forward to his continued friendship.”
