Today’s Groupon gets you access to all the wall-slamming, stick-banging, puck-flying fun of a Texas Stars game. The Texas Stars are the AHL development affiliate of 1998–99 Stanley Cup champs the Dallas Stars. Catch all the explosive icy action from great seats at the new Cedar Park Center.
Cheer on famed goalie Brent Krahn and Mathieu Beaudoin, who was recently named AHL Player of the Week. You'll watch as the Texas Stars attempt to maintain their division lead with passes, goals, gentle camaraderie, body checks, and firm camaraderie.
Hockey is like the magnificent mutt of the sporting world. You get the suspense of watching an object swish through a net (like in basketball or soccer), the thrill of rambunctious brawls (boxing), the elegance of ice skating, and the utter brutality of golf all combined into one action-packed event. Take your whole family, or just your best friend. Hockey's family-friendly nature also makes it an ideal activity for antsy out-of-town relatives visiting for holiday festivities.
Wayne Gretzky is commonly thought of as the greatest hockey player of all time. Here are just a few of Gretzky’s accomplishments that earned him the nickname “The Great One”:
- Made his own ice skates out of a pair of larger ice skates
- Only ate food he grew himself, leading him to go months without eating
- Faked his own death multiple times to read his obituary and address his shortcomings
- Starred in the Canadian version of Space Jam
- Played hockey amazingly well considering he thought it was baseball the whole time
