The Idaho Steelheads, in conjunction with the Dallas Stars and Texas Stars, announced Friday that the three organizations have renewed their affiliation for the 2012-13 season.
Idaho (ECHL) and Texas (American Hockey League) are the primary development affiliates of the NHL's Dallas Stars. It will be the fourth consecutive season that the three teams have been affiliated together.
"Over the years, we have had a very positive relationship with the Idaho Steelheads organization," said Dallas Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk. "We look forward to continuing the development of our prospects in Idaho as they take the necessary steps to become productive members of the Dallas Stars."
