The Texas Stars will begin their fifth season of play in the American Hockey League by donning new road jerseys, the organization announced May 23.
The Cedar Park–based affiliate of the Dallas Stars will change its road jerseys from all black to primarily dark green—the same color used in the team's logo. The front-facing crest will also feature the team's secondary logo, while the shoulders will feature the original Stars logo on each side.
The team's alternate home jerseys prior to the 2011–12 season will now be the Stars' primary jersey when competing at the Cedar Park Center. The uniform is primarily white and retains the organization's primary logo. Stars players wore the jersey the past two years with multicolored socks, while the 2013–14 home uniforms will be worn with a newly designed sock of all white with bands of dark green and gold, according to a new release.
"We are very excited about our new jersey designs, and we believe they will help our continuous efforts to strengthen the Texas Stars brand and team identity," Stars President Rick McLaughlin said in a statement. "We have enjoyed tremendous success on and off the ice over the past four seasons, and we are really looking forward to initiating our fifth anniversary celebration with this great new look."
The Texas Stars season ended May 16 when the team lost its best-of-seven conference semifinal playoff series against the Oklahoma City Barons.
