Jere Lehtinen’s name will hang among the greats.

The Dallas Stars announced Saturday that the club will retire the Finnish winger’s No. 26 prior to a game next season.

The ceremony will be part of 25th anniversary celebrations for the Stars, who arrived in Texas when the Minnesota North Stars relocated in 1993.

Lehtinen played his entire career with Dallas, making his NHL debut in 1995 and appearing in his final game in 2010. He captured three Selke Trophies over his career and won the Stanley Cup in 1999.
