Here's a look at what to expect for Dallas Stars fans heading to the Dallas Galleria on Saturday's for the team's annual Ice Breaker which has acted as the team's kick off event since the NHL Lockout ended in the Summer of 2005.

It's that time of year again - September is right around the corner. That means Labor Day, school's back in session and best of all, hockey training camp begins again.
Dallas Stars training camp is only a few weeks away with the players heading to Prince Edward Island on September 17 for the first few days of practice. But before training camp gets going, it is time for the first official event with your 2010-2011 Dallas Stars team and "Break the Ice" on a new season.
