MINNESOTA NORTH STARS 1992/93
- The Beginning: Courtnall was traded to Minnesota by Montreal on August 31, 1992, in exchange for Brian Bellows.
- The End: Courtnall was with the Minnesota North Stars for one season (1992/93), and the team then moved to Dallas and became the Dallas Stars in advance of the 1993/94 season. During his second season in Dallas, Courtnall was traded to the Vancouver Canucks for Dan Kesa, Greg Adams, and a fifth round pick in the 1995 draft.
- Leaf Connection: Courtnall was drafted seventh overall by the Leafs in the 1983 entry draft and he made his debut during the 1983 season, scoring 12 points in 14 games. After a disappointing 1984/85 season he produced solid numbers for two consecutive seasons. However, Courtnall got off to a slow start during the 1988/89 season with two points in his first nine games, and with coach John Brophy preferring a more rough and tumble style of play, Courtnall was traded to Montreal for goon John Kordic it what became one of the more comically lop-sided trades in NHL history.
- The Jersey: When Norm Green purchased the Minnesota North Stars in 1990 it signalled the beginning of the end of the franchise in Minnesota. The foreshadowing started in 1991 when the team changed its crest from the famous "N" to "Stars". In addition, the primary colour of the road jersey was changed from green to black. When the franchise relocated to Dallas for the 1993/94 season the style of the jersey remained virtually unchanged at first, with the only significant change being the addition of a Texas patch to both shoulders.
- The Wear: At least 10 team repairs on the right sleeve, including a 5+ inch repair that runs down the green piping below the elbow. Two team repairs on the left sleeve. Various stick marks scattered all over jersey. Interior and exterior pilling.
- The Season: The North Stars would finish 36-38-10 in 1992/93, the franchise's final season in Minnesota. This put the North Stars in fifth in the Norris Division, so the North Stars failed to qualify for the playoffs. Courtnall led the North Stars in goals with 36, and he finished second on the team in points with 79, trailing only Mike Modano (who had 93). As this was a set 2 jersey, it is likely that this was the jersey Courtnall was wearing when he scored the final home goal for the Minnesota North Stars on April 13, 1993.
