Defenseman, Jagger Dirk joined the Stars for the 2019-2020 season and the Canadian brought experience and size to the Dundee blueline.
The 27-year-old had previously played in the American Hockey League, East Coast Hockey League and the USports League.
Firstly, Jagger explained what he has been doing during the last year, since leaving Dundee.
He said: “I have been working as a financial advisor back here in Canada and I am also still training for next season, so that I can get back to playing hockey again.”
Dirk played in 54 games of the 2019/2020 Elite League season, scoring four goals and assisting on 31 more.
The defender then shared what his favourite moments with the club were and he said: “My fondest memories were with the fans after we won a big game and all the time I spent with the guys on the team.
“My favourite memory in the Stars jersey would just be all the support we had from the fans, even when the team was not playing the best, you guys were always there for us.
“But the funniest moment was when the guys had to sing and dance to the backstreet boys.”
The Penticton, British Colombia native then revealed more about what made him choose to sign with the Stars in the summer of 2019.
Jagger explained: “I wanted to peruse my masters degree and I knew some of the guys that had signed with Dundee before me, so it seemed like a great fit.”
Finally, Dirk shared a message to all the Stars fans back in Dundee and he said: “I would like to say to the fans to keep up the support and excitement for the team whenever the league is able to start again.
“Without the fans, hockey is not as enjoyable as it should be, so thank you for everything!”
