As we continue our ‘Look Back’ series, today’s article will highlight one Star Player from the 2009-2010 season and the chosen player is – Gary Wishart

By Kris Smith

The forward from Kirkcaldy first joined the Stars in 2002 from local rivals, Fife Flyers and he played a total of three seasons in Dundee before leaving for Slough Jets of the English Premier League.

Before he moved across the River Tay, Gary had spent all of his career with his hometown team and made 179 appearances in the British National League for Fife, before playing for Great Britain’s Men’s team in 2002.

Wishart also had a second spell with Dundee and re-joined the club in 2008.

He may have came from Fife, but the Stars fans quickly welcomed the deadly forward into the team and their way of life.

In the 2009-2010 season, Wishart iced in 12 Northern League matches, lead the team in goals with 17 and assisted on a further 10 for 27 points.

 

 

After featuring in 105 Stars games during his first spell and 123 in his second term, which lasted four years, Gary moved on 2012.

The forward, who could also play at the back, then had a year out from hockey before he played his final professional season with Kirkcaldy Kestrels in the Scottish National League in the 2013-2014 season.

During his entire career with Dundee, Wishart scored 138 points (65 goals and 73 assists) and lifted trophies, such as the BNL Playoff Trophy and Scottish Autumn Cup.
