The new look Dallas Stars will open the upcoming season on the road against Colorado on October 9th. Dallas will make its home debut two nights later against Anaheim.
The Stars are entering their 10th season in Dallas and are coming off their first non-playoff appearance since 1996. They have a new coach, new goaltender, and three new high-priced free agents to try returning the team to among the NHL's elite.
The season schedule released on Wednesday shows that the Stars will play only four of their first 13 games at American Airlines Center in Dallas. The flip side is that from November 6th to December 13th, Dallas will have 11 of 18 games at home. Their longest homestand will be a six game stretch from February 9th through the 21st against Los Angeles, Carolina, Anaheim, San Jose, Calgary, and Phoenix.
