Local area youth hockey players had the opportunity to participate in the Community Chest Charity Alumni Game by fundraising on behalf of the Community Chest. All youth hockey players who helped raise funds for the Community Chest over the last two months were eligible to be selected to participate in the game.

The game will be played in memory of local hockey player, Travis Stryker, who along with his mother and father were killed in a tragic car accident en route to a hockey tournament. The proceeds from the Community Chest Charity Alumni Game will benefit the Stryker Family and will go toward supporting the future needs of the hockey community in Texas. Austin Stryker, Travis' brother, is scheduled to participate in game.

Made up of former Dallas Stars and local NHL alumni, the Dallas Stars Alumni Association (DSAA) uses hockey as a vehicle to serve the local community. As ambassadors of the sport, DSAA members act as role models, support charitable initiatives, and promote the growth of hockey throughout the Texas region.
