‘08 Dallas Stars Elite set a club record with 20 consecutive victories

When looking at the records for many youth hockey teams this season, you would be hard pressed to find one as impressive as the 2008-born No. 5 Dallas Stars Elite. Consistently in the Top 10 among U.S. teams in the World Rankings, the club is in the midst of one of the most successful winning streaks in organization history. 

On Oct. 28, the Stars fell to the Hartford Jr. Wolfpack 2-0. The following day, they rebounded with a 4-2 win against Ottawa Myers Automotive in a cross-border matchup. 

From that point on, all they have done is win. A lot

In the midst of a 21-game winning streak, it is the longest streak of its kind by any team in Dallas Stars Elite program history. They surpassed the previous record holder, the 18U Stars Elite, who won 18 consecutive games from Oct. 8-Dec. 17 2021. 

Any win streak is an impressive feat. But to best your opponent 20 straight times is certainly uncommon. Yet, the Stars Elite machine keeps chugging along. 

One of the main sparks to their streak has been their incredible offense. Currently equipped with a plus-196 goal differential, few teams have been able to match that output on a nightly basis. The Stars have put up at least four goals in 19 of the 21 wins, averaging close to six goals a game. A tight blue line and consistent efforts in the crease from the duo of Mark Djomo and Liam Holmes have also helped keep the opposition at bay.

The club has only needed overtime once to secure a win, coming against the Buffalo Jr. Sabres on Dec. 18 of last year.

All eyes will be on their next matchup, a second game against the Long Island Gulls on Feb. 2. The Gulls were one of the last teams to defeat the Stars, so they will be yearning for an opportunity to end the streak. Following that, the Stars will round out the week with contests against the North Jersey Avalanche and Philadelphia Flyers Elite
