Stars Players Give Back
Stars Players give back to the North Texas Community by providing tickets to Stars home games in 2013-14.

Dallas Stars captain Jamie Benn, newly acquired forward Tyler Seguin, forward Vernon Fiddler and defenseman Alex Goligoski will all provide tickets to each Dallas Stars home game at American Airlines Center during the 2013-14 season for various charitable causes in the North Texas area.

Jamie Benn, who was named the sixth captain in Dallas Stars history on Sept. 19, 2013, will provide four lower level tickets per game, along with two suite nights during the season, for children with multiple sclerosis. Partnering with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the tickets will be distributed to a variety of children's hospitals in the Metroplex.

"Our organization has a great history of players using their resources to give back to the community and using our influence to help make a lasting impact beyond the ice," Benn said. "I'm excited to provide an opportunity for those with multiple sclerosis to attend a Stars home game."

The 21-year-old Tyler Seguin has leased a suite for each Stars home game and will donate it to persons that have suffered severe spinal cord injuries. Seguin will partner with the Southwest Wheelchair Athletic Association (SWAA) during the 2013-14 campaign. Along with providing tickets to the game, Seguin will participate in a post-game meet-and-greet with those attending the game on his behalf.

"One of the first things I wanted to do as a member of the Dallas Stars was give back to the North Texas community," Seguin said. "I have a close connection to someone with a spinal cord injury and the SWAA was gracious enough to allow me to work with their great organization."

For the second consecutive season, forward Vernon Fiddler and his wife Chrissy will sponsor the Fidd's Kids section at American Airlines Center. Each game, the Fiddler's will donate tickets to Make-A-Wish® North Dallas, giving children in the program the opportunity to enjoy Dallas Stars hockey.

Defenseman Alex Goligoski is providing four lower level tickets per game for military families. Goligoski is actively involved with Defending The Blue Line, a non-profit organization that provides free equipment for military children along with hockey camps, special events and financial assistance with costs associated with playing hockey. This summer, Goligoski participated in Defending The Blue Line's NHL Players Charity Game, which raises money for the organization.

The Dallas Stars begin the 2013-14 NHL season with two games over Opening Weekend on Oct. 3 vs. the Florida Panthers and Oct. 5 against the Washington Capitals. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit DallasStars.com.
