As part of our 20th season celebrations, the Kitmart Dundee Stars are excited to bringing you the special opportunity to vote for who should be in our coveted all-time starting six line-up.

Today, we bring you a special version of Stats of the Stars that is aimed at helping you make your decision when voting begins on tomorrow.

This article will compare the statistics of the 16 left wingers that we have selected to be in with a chance of winning the starting slot on the left side of our all-time starting six.

However, you can still send in your own suggestions for other players we have not listed by using #StarsStartingSix.

Firstly, we begin by looking at how many games each winger played for the club and this includes both regular season and playoff matches.

GP

  1. AJ MacLean – 179

  2. Mikael Lidhammar – 124
  3. Matt Marquardt – 123
  4. Billy Bagron – 112
  5. Jason Shmyr – 108
  6. Teeder Wynne – 96
  7. Lukas Lundvald – 91
  8. Fabrizio Ricci – 67
  9. Lou Dickenson – 64
  10. Jimmy Jensen – 62
  11. Igor Gongalsky – 59
  12. Cale Tanaka – 58
  13. Kevin Dufour – 56
  14. Jerry Pollastrone – 48
  15. John Haig – 46
  16. Dainius Bauba – 45

 

Former Stars, Captain was the clear leader in this category after leading the team threw three Elite League campaigns and other mainstays in the Stars side included; last season’s captain, Marquardt and double-season stayers; Lidhammar, Bagron and Shmyr.

Next, we rank the players by their total amount of points they collected with the Stars.

P

  1. Teeder Wynne – 210
  2. Billy Bagron – 109
  3. AJ MacLean – 108
  4. Jason Shmyr – 105
  5. John Haig & Matt Marquardt – 104
  6. Mikael Lidhammar – 82
  7. Lukas Lundvald – 74
  8. Lou Dickenson – 68
  9. Jerry Pollastrone – 61
  10. Kevin Dufour – 56
  11. Dainius Bauba – 55
  12. Cale Tanaka – 46
  13. Fabrizio Ricci – 42
  14. Jimmy Jensen – 39
  15. Igor Gongalsky – 30

 

Many of the players who were skating for the Stars in the British National League era sit high up this list, as the team had a lot of offensive success in those four years.

However, Bagron and MacLean were standouts as they put up their high total in just two Elite League seasons and were both part of successful line combinations.

The players were then ranked by how many goals each scored for the club.

G

  1. Teeder Wynne – 89

    Matt Marquardt (Picture by: Derek Black)
  2. AJ MacLean – 58
  3. Matt Marquardt – 51
  4. John Haig – 46
  5. Jason Shmyr – 33
  6. Kevin Dufour & Lukas Lundvald – 32
  7. Mikael Lidhammar – 31
  8. Billy Bagron – 28
  9. Lou Dickenson – 26
  10. Jerry Pollastrone – 25
  11. Dainius Bauba & Jimmy Jensen – 21
  12. Fabrizio Ricci – 18
  13. Cale Tanaka – 16
  14. Igor Gongalsky – 15

 

Teeder Wynne excelled in pair of seasons with the club and his high offensive output helped the Stars to their BNL League and Playoff double in 2001/2002. Although, a 30+ goal season in the Elite League has always been considered extremely successful.

Next to be compared was each of the forward’s total number of assists in a Stars jersey.

A

  1. Teeder Wynne – 121

    Billy Bagron (Picture by: Derek Black)
  2. Billy Bagron – 81
  3. Jason Shmyr – 72
  4. Matt Marquardt – 61
  5. John Haig – 58
  6. Mikael Lidhammar – 51
  7. AJ MacLean – 50
  8. Lou Dickenson & Lukas Lundvald – 42
  9. Jerry Pollastrone – 36
  10. Dainius Bauba – 34
  11. Cale Tanaka – 30
  12. Fabrizio Ricci & Kevin Dufour – 24
  13. Jimmy Jensen – 18
  14. Igor Gongalsky – 15

 

Wynne again topped this after the team’s early offensive dominance in their opening years but the club’s real playmakers can be seen at the top of this list, as they would have created a significant amount of the teams goals in each season.

Each player’s total number of penalty minutes was next to be ranked and while some people see more as better, you typically want to spend more time on the ice than in the box.

 

PIMS

  1. Jason Shmyr – 435

  2. Teeder Wynne – 185
  3. Igor Gongalsky – 178
  4. Dainius Bauba – 148
  5. Mikael Lidhammar – 138
  6. AJ MacLean – 137
  7. Billy Bagron – 124
  8. Matt Marquardt – 81
  9. Jerry Pollastrone – 62
  10. Lukas Lundvald – 53
  11. Fabrizio Ricci – 46
  12. Cale Tanaka – 34
  13. Jimmy Jensen – 24
  14. John Haig – 23
  15. Kevin Dufour – 20
  16. Lou Dickenson – 16

 

Shmyr was renowned as the team’s tough guy and his entertaining fisticuffs were a regular occurrence but key players like Dufour, Haig and Dickenson must be commended for their strong discipline.

Finally, each player’s points per game totals were compared and this statistic is calculated by taking a player’s total points and dividing that by their total games played.

PPG

  1. John Haig – 2.26
  2. Teeder Wynne – 2.19
  3. Jerry Pollastrone – 1.27
  4. Dainius Bauba – 1.22
  5. Lou Dickenson – 1.06
  6. Kevin Dufour – 1.00
  7. Billy Bagron & Jason Shmyr – 0.97
  8. Matt Marquardt – 0.85
  9. Lukas Lundvald – 0.81
  10. Cale Tanaka – 0.79
  11. Mikael Lidhammar – 0.66
  12. Fabrizio Ricci & Jimmy Jensen – 0.63
  13. AJ MacLean – 0.60
  14. Igor Gongalsky – 0.51

 

Some of the BNL and Scottish League players were well clear at the top of this list but the quality of opposition has not been consistent throughout the club’s history.

However, to be achieving close to a point per game in the EIHL era is still a remarkable achievement.
