The Dallas Stars announced today that the Dallas Stars Alumni Association will host the Israeli National Team in a charity exhibition game on Saturday, Sept. 12. The game will take place at Dr Pepper Arena in Frisco and will begin at 8:30 p.m.
A number of former Stars players will be participating at the event, including former goaltender Marty Turco, former defenseman and current Stars TV analyst Brent Severyn and many more. Team Israel will feature the nation's elite players, including Sergei Frenkel, the all-time leading point scorer for Team Israel, Daniel Mazour, who is ranked fourth in points all-time in Israel, the all-time Israeli leader in games played, goaltender Yevgeni Gusin, and former Fort Worth Brahmas defenseman Daniel Spivak.
"We are very excited for the opportunity to participate in a charity game with Team Israel," said Stars Director of Alumni, Bob Bassen. "While the Alumni Association is dedicated to helping support hockey programs in Texas, we jumped at the idea of taking on an international team and helping to grow awareness for the game of hockey in Israel."
Tickets are available for purchase through Ticketmaster.com and range in price from $10-$50. Fans will also have the opportunity to purchase a ticket for the Stars game on Oct. 24 against the Florida Panthers for just $10 when purchasing their tickets for the Alumni game.
