'It's been incredible': With growing fan base, Stars on fast rise

Fresh off a playoff run and selling out the 2020 Winter Classic, the organization's future looks brighter than ever

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

The Dallas Stars' business rebirth is an overnight success story seven years in the making.

When Tom Gaglardi bought the team out of bankruptcy in 2011, much of the infrastructure had been stripped down by banks who were trying to guard their investment, so the focus was on reducing more than expanding.

But after hosting the NHL Draft last summer, selling out the 2020 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic in record time, and now grabbing a whole new layer of sports fans in Dallas/Fort Worth with their 2019 playoff run, the Stars are looking like a hot sports commodity.

"I'd put our organization up against anybody in the league," Gaglardi said. "We have very talented people throughout our organization, and I really do think that makes a difference."

Anticipation high, Winter Classic beginning to take shape for Stars

Dallas gets its first chance to truly imagine what outdoor hockey will look like at Cotton Bowl Stadium

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

Gary Bettman joked when he was asked Wednesday if he ever imagined the Winter Classic coming to the Cotton Bowl.

"Oh sure," the NHL Commissioner quipped, "I knew it all along."

The uniqueness of playing an outdoor hockey game in a 90-year-old football stadium in Dallas, Texas was at the center of the discussion when the league held its official press conference to announce that ticket sales to the 2020 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic would begin on April 23.

The fact that the 12th NHL Winter Classic will be held in a southern venue with two teams who have never before played an outdoor game -- Dallas and Nashville -- is one of the reasons the game is happening.

Predators excited to be part of unique Winter Classic in Dallas

Playing the game in Texas shows a different side of hockey fans, and Nashville amps up that concept

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- As much as the Winter Classic is going to mean a lot to the City of Dallas and the Stars, it's also a pretty big deal for the Nashville Predators.

The Stars were announced as the host of the 2020 Winter Classic outdoor hockey game at Cotton Bowl Stadium on New Year's Day, and the Predators were announced as the opponent during the All-Star Game weekend. Making this a Sunbelt Classic means a lot to both organizations, as they are getting exposure and recognition that has often been reserved for more traditional teams in the past.

"I've never played in one and I don't think many of our players here have played in one, so I think it's awesome," said Nashville captain Roman Josi. "I think it will be a new thing for a lot of people."

That can apply in so many different ways for the Dallas Stars and the Winter Classic.

The Stars management team pushed and prepared to make a unique proposal to the NHL to bring the traditional outdoor game to Dallas so it could be played at the iconic Cotton Bowl. They were lucky when the league agreed that would be a good idea.

'Good memories': Winter Classic takes Stars back to their roots

Whether a veteran of NHL outdoor games or backyard rinks, Dallas' players agree: This will be special

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

When the Winter Classic comes to Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas next Jan. 1, it will be the latest of the games designed to take hockey back to its roots -- the outdoors, frozen ponds and lakes, and backyard rinks.

"That's good memories," said Stars defenseman John Klingberg. "That's how you started playing, right?"

Those outdoor roots vary, depending on where players began lacing up the skates.
