Farm teamsEdit

In 2008, the Stars ended their affiliation with the AHL's Iowa Stars as their primary minor league affiliate, expecting to announce the formation of a new minor league expansion team, the Texas Stars, at the beginning of the 2009-10 season. The Texas Stars will be based in Cedar Park, TX, just three hours driving time from the metroplex. The Stars' minor league contract players are currently scattered among four different teams in the AHL and more in the ECHL.
