August 10, 2005

IOWA STARS SIGN PLAYER LOAN AGREEMENT WITH THE EDMONTON OILERS
Oilers to Provide Players to Dallas Stars AHL Affiliate as Part of One-Year Deal

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Dallas Stars Assistant General Manager Francois Giguere announced today that the Iowa Stars have signed a one-year player loan agreement with the Edmonton Oilers. As part of the agreement, the Oilers will provide players to Dallas' development affiliate team, the Iowa Stars of the American Hockey League (AHL). Edmonton is expected to place up to seven players with Iowa in 2005-06.

"The Iowa Stars are very pleased about this player loan agreement with the Edmonton Oilers," said Giguere. "Some of Edmonton's prospects will get the opportunity to play and develop with Iowa while providing some depth for the AHL club."

The Iowa Stars' first-ever training camp in preparation for the 2005-06 season will begin on September 24 in Des Moines.

About the Iowa Stars and the Affiliation with Dallas
The Iowa Stars will begin a five-year affiliation agreement with the National Hockey League's Dallas Stars this fall as Iowa plays their inaugural season in the AHL. As per the affiliation agreement, the Dallas Stars will provide up to 22 players to the Iowa Stars. Dallas is responsible for all hockey operation decisions.

The Iowa Stars will join 28 other clubs in the AHL, which serves as the top development league for all 30 National Hockey League teams. Entering its 70th season of operation this fall, over 80 percent of all players to compete in the NHL in 2003-04 were AHL graduates, and more than 400 players took the ice in both leagues.

The New Wells Fargo Arena
The Iowa Stars will begin play in the AHL in October 2005 in the state-of-the-art Wells Fargo Arena in downtown Des Moines. The venue officially opened on July 6, 2005. The arena is located in the heart of Iowa's capital city along the banks of the Des Moines River. Along with great sightlines, the Wells Fargo Arena, with a seating capacity of more than 17,000 people for many events, features 600 club seats, 36 corporate suites, a 180-seat restaurant and state-of-the-art video boards. The seating capacity for hockey will be 15,585. The Wells Fargo Arena, along with the Hy-Vee Hall and Veterans Memorial Auditorium, form the Iowa Events Center, a premier state-of-the-art multi-purpose facility for sports, concerts, entertainment, trade shows, conventions and exhibits. This $217 million facility totals more than one million square feet in size. The arena features a panoramic view of the downtown skyline, Des Moines River and the golden capitol dome. The Wells Fargo Arena is managed by Global Spectrum, the fastest growing firm in the public assembly management field.
