Won't be long now....
Less than a month til I'm back in my rinkside seat as Public Address Announcer for the Dallas Stars, as they prepare to kick off the 2017-18 NHL season.
The regular season home opener is Friday, October 6th when the Stars welcome the brand new Vegas Golden Knights into the American Airlines Center.
The pre-season begins even sooner. The St Louis Blues coming to town on 9/19 which is ironic considering Ken Hitchcock is once again behind the bench for the Stars. Last season he was fired from the Blues.
2017-18 also marks the 25th Anniversary of the team moving to Dallas (from Minnesota in 1993) and the Stars have a season-long celebration planned
To prepare, the ice crew at AAC spent the better part of this week painting the lines and placing the logos prior to spraying the water which will become ice.
Catch a sneak peek at the process, including the new logo.
