Texas Stars Announce Pre-Season Games Against Rampage, Aeros

The Texas Stars announced their pre-season schedule today, a slate of three games in four days in the first weekend of October. Typical opponents are among those included with two against the Rampage and one at home against Houston.

Here are the schedule details.
Wednesday, October 3rd – Stars vs. Houston Aeros
7:00 pm @ Cedar Park Center

Friday, October 5th – Stars vs. San Antonio Rampage
7:00 pm @ Cedar Park Center

Saturday, October 6th – Stars @ San Antonio Rampage
3:00 pm @ Ice & Golf Center at Northwoods

Note the earlier start time of 7:00 PM despite the weekday game. In the past, weekday games were at 7:30 PM and Saturday games at 7:00. Also note that San Antonio's game will be at the Northwoods Ice Center. I have attended both of the prior two games at the Ice Center and recommend you get there early if you want decent seats. The best ones are standing against the glass. Tickets for that game are usually $5. SA season ticket holders get in for free though.

Here's the full release:
