Stars Affiliation with Idaho Announced



June 29, 2005

DALLAS STARS ANNOUNCE AFFILIATION WITH IDAHO STEELHEADS
ECHL Club Will Be Stars' Development Affiliate

FRISCO, Texas -­ The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has reached an affiliate agreement with the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL. As a Dallas Stars affiliate during the club's inaugural season of 2003-2004, the Steelheads captured the Patrick J. Kelly Cup, awarded to the ECHL champions.

"We are excited to continue our affiliation with Idaho and we're looking forward to a great deal of success for the Steelheads," Dallas Stars Assistant General Manager Francois Giguere said. "Idaho has displayed a great deal of success thus far, and along with the Iowa Stars, we should have a solid, coordinated partnership."

Considered the premier "AA" hockey league in North America, the ECHL has affiliations with 23 of the 30 teams in the National Hockey League. Additionally, the ECHL had affiliations with 23 of the 28 teams in the American Hockey League in 2004-05, creating a true minor league system where players can be promoted within the given parent organization.

The Idaho Steelheads play at the 5,000-seat Bank of America Centre, which opened in downtown Boise in 1997. The club played host to over 178,000 fans at their home games last season, which saw the Steelheads set club marks for ECHL wins (42) and points (91) before being eliminated in the West Division Semifinals. During a one-year hiatus from their affiliation with Dallas, Idaho served as an affiliate of the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes and AHL's Utah Grizzlies in 2004-2005.

For more information about the Idaho Steelheads, please contact the team at (208-383-0080) or visit the club's website at www.idahosteelheads.com.
