Minnesota. 1967 - 1993.

The Dallas Stars hockey team came from Minnesota in 1993. In Minnesota, the teams name was the Minnesota North Stars. The North Stars were a team from 1967 to 1993. Home North Star games were played at the Metropolitan Sports Center, a.k.a. the "Met Center", in Bloomington, Minnesota. After being very successful the first couple of years, the franchise suffered financial problems in the mid-1970's. George III and Gordon Gund, the owners of the Clevelnad Barons, purchased the North Stars in 1978. Teams merged due to financial troubles and kept the name, the Minnesota North Stars. Once agian, the North Stars were back! In 1981, the team made it to the Stanley Cup finals. They lost to the New York Islanders after five games.

However, in the early 1990's the team was suffering from financial problems yet again. The NHL declined a request to move the North Stars to the San Francisco Bay Area. The NHL instead awarded an expansion franchise to the Gund brothers, the San Jose Sharks. A group of investors bought the North Stars, originally wanting a team in San Jose. One of the investors, Norman Green eventually gained control of the team. The next season, the Minnesota North Stars made it to the Stanley Cup finals again, but lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Dallas. 1993 -1994.

In 1993, the North Stars moved to Dallas, Texas and changed their name to the "Stars". The home games were played in the Reunion Arena in Dallas. Since Minnesota no longer had an professional hockey team, the league promised them a new team. In 2000 , Minnesota got the Minnesota Wild hockey team. The Stars made it to the playoffs in 1994, but lost to the Vancouver Canucks. Norman Green sold the Stars to a man named Tom Hicks.
