From Mike Heika at the Dallas Morning News:
Word just came down that they could not make the planned pre-season game between the Stars and Coyotes at Houston's Reliant Stadium happen.
The guess is it will just be held at [American Airlines Center in Dallas], but we'll see when the official pre-season schedule comes out later this week.
Admittedly, I'm disappointed by this news. I was really looking forward to a "Summer Classic" being held, even if it was set for a domed stadium, helping considerably to control the temperature. Still, semi-outdoor September hockey in Houston? I was interested, and we're talking preseason hockey here, so that's not an incredibly enticing spectacle to begin with.
No word on why it is being called off. At this point we still have no NFL games to interfere.
