Jeff Cogen was named the new president of the Dallas Stars this morning, replacing Jim Lites, who is moving into a larger role with Hicks Sports Marketing Group. Cogen, who has previous NHL experience as president of the Florida Panthers, had been president of the Texas Rangers for the past four seasons.

As far as the Rangers position that Cogen vacates is concerned, no successor has been named. Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News speculates that candidates could include executive vice president of business operations Rick McLaughlin, Hicks Holdings vice president Tom Hicks Jr., executive vice president of communications and public relations Jim Sundberg, and senior advisor to the general manager John Hart.

(Could Chuck Morgan be in the mix?)
