The pre-season continues to wind down, and Stars fans already know there’s a lot of change happening around the team and the organization. Uniform changes, lineup changes, roster changes; you name it and it seems like the Stars are mixing it up. Here are a few more to throw into the giant bucket of change.
It’s not unusual to see goalies change up their masks, and Kari Lehtonen has had some amazing, impressive and downright beautiful masks in the past. From his classic “Tombstone” mask to what he’ll don this season, it seems there’s something about the Old West, and Texas, that Lehtonen is drawn to. While this season’s mask highlights more of what the team is turning to in color and style than something spontaneous, there’s still that hint of Texas that makes it truly Kari. http://ingoalmag.com/news/kari-lehtonens-new-dallas-stars-mask/
The most recent change to hit the Stars organization was the reshuffling and assignment of new sweater numbers. Seeing number 10 on the back of Shawn Horcoff instead of Brenden Morrow is sure to bring pain to a lot of Stars fans this season, but one member of the team’s roster is doing his part to ensure his fans can keep up with the change. http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/stars-antoine-roussel-switches-number-pay-jersey-change-153607114.html
Perhaps the most important facet of the Stars organization is ticket prices and availability, and with the Stars sitting in a new division with the potential to create brilliant new rivalries, this season is no different. If you’re holding out on purchasing tickets, get in touch with a ticket agent soon and see how much more you’ll be paying to see the Red Wings or the Penguins than the Blue Jackets or the Wild. http://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/blog/2013/07/dallas-stars-run-power-play-to-score.html
