GLEN SONMOR

Game 273 | November 20 | Glen Sonmor, Craig Hartsburg, Tom McCarthy
With the addition of new players such as Neal Broten, Dino Ciccarelli, Steve Payne, Hartsburg (age 20), and McCarthy (age 19), the North Stars had five straight winning seasons starting in 1979-80. With Sonmor as the coach that year, the team had a record attendance on January 6, 1980, when Philadelphia came to the Met Center with a 35-game undefeated streak and lost to the North Stars 7-1.


Game 322 | February 5, 1985 | Lou Nanne, Glen Sonmor, Tony McKegney
Coming off a trip to the Stanley Cup finals the year before, the North Stars had high expectations in the 1984-'85 season. The team slipped badly, posting a 25-43-12 record. McKegney, the first Canadian-born black player to make an impact in the NHL, scored 24 points in his first year with the North Stars. Sonmor; a close friend of General Manager Nanne, returned briefly to coach part of the 1984-'85 season.
