The Texas Stars, an American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL Dallas Stars, will not be allowed to finish their season.

The AHL suspended the rest of the season March 12.


"With the health and safety of our players, officials, staff and fans of primary importance, the American Hockey League has announced the suspension of play until further notice, effective immediately, due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic," the AHS press release said.

The Texas Stars were scheduled to play six more regular-season games in H-E-B Center at Cedar Park, the next being March 18 against the Manitoba Moose.

The announcement comes a day after the Austin Spurs and the NBA's G League suspended the remainder of the season.


Group ticket purchasers and season ticketholders will have their remaining tickets credited to their account should the season resume. If not, it will be applied to tickets for the 2020-21 season, according to Texas Stars spokesperson Brian Tosti. Credit card purchases at the box office or through Ticketmaster will be automatically refunded within seven days.


Fans who donated to the upcoming Military Appreciation Weekend will have those donations refunded. For more information, call or text 512-GO-STARS (467-8277) or email [email protected].
