Dallas Stars players got together and asked management if they could spent time with their fans prior to the team's first exhibition game. Only in the NHL.
They were dressed in their jerseys just to avoid the uncomfortable moment when a fan knows you're a player... just not which one.
National Hockey League players aren't quite as well known as their MLB, NFL and NBA counterparts but there's no doubt who wins the collective award for most fan- friendly.
The Dallas Stars opened their exhibition season by asking management to let them meet, greet and sign for thousands of fans on the main concourse to American Airlines Arena.
