Fort Worth and the Dallas Stars have moved deeper into discussions about the city hosting a three-day training camp for the hockey team this September, Kirk Slaughter, Fort Worth’s public events director, said.
“If it occurs, what would occur would probably be a training camp on Wednesday-Thursday-Friday in the (Fort Worth) Convention Center arena,” Slaughter said. On the final day, the team would break into two squads for a scrimmage.
The team could end up staying in Fort Worth and hosting some fan activities, he said. The city and team are looking at Sept. 11-13, he said.
“We’re in some pretty serious discussions with them, and hopefully, we’ll have something put together real soon,” Slaughter said. “We think it would be a good marriage between between their organization and all the hockey fans on this side of the Metroplex. We think it would be a fun week.”
