The Dallas Stars used the jumbotron at the American Airlines Center to take a shot at Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o during the third period of Saturday's NHL game against the Phoenix Coyotes.
The jumbotron displayed an empty seat with the caption "Manti Teo's girlfriend: Welcome to the game!" Totally unnessary, but totally hilarious.

The Dallas Stars got in on the Manti Te'o heckling with a funny image on their big screen during a game. See the team's joke here.
NHL hockey is finally back. and the dozen or so millions of hockey fans remaining in America are ecstatic that the lockout is over and the season wasn't canceled.
One of them, apparently, was Manti Te'o's imaginary girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, who was in attendance of the Dallas Stars first game of the season.
Yes, these jokes are gonna continue for a while...

This could be the BEST Jaromir Jagr photo ever. Yikes!
This Manti Te'o story has truly taken a life of its own. The bizarre tale of a Notre Dame star linebacker and his (fake) girlfriend has been the subject of many jokes since Deadspin broke the news on Wednesday.With that being said, the Dallas Stars had a very special guest in attendance for their season opener on Saturday night. Lennay Kekua, the name of Te'o's alleged...
There she is! On the Jumbotron!
Even the Dallas Stars are getting in on the Manti Te’o fake girlfriend fun. During the third period of the team’s season-opening game on Saturday, cameras in the arena flashed to an empty chair in section 125 and showed it on the jumbotron. The caption was: “Manti Te’o's girlfriend welcome to the game!”
When the Te’oing trend was established, the invisible girlfriend...

The lockout-shortened 2013 season starts tonight at the American Airlines Center with a clash against defending Pacific Division champion Phoenix. The game starts at 7:00 p.m. central time and will be broadcast on Fox Sports Southwest.
The Texas Stars entered the week without a majority of their key players as they were with the Dallas Stars. The gutted roster didn’t really miss a beat though as they won two of their three games last week and showed a season high outburst of offense in their final two games.
The Stars dropped their first game of the week 4-1 but bounced back with a vengeance...
After Sunday's 1-0 victory over the Dallas Stars, I turned on other hockey games just to wind down. I caught the end of Vancouver-Edmonton which went to a shootout and then tuned into Phoenix-Chicago, a run and gun affair. Clearly, the Phoenix-Chicago game was tons of fun to watch as a hockey fan in general and fan of neither team specifically. And it was tons different than...

(Delving) Into the Wild:
Minnesota made the biggest splash in free agency last summer (and was probably a huge reason why the lockout had to happen) with their gigantic signings of Ryan Suter and Zach Parise.
Parise paid off immediately last night as...
ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Zach Parise's first goal in a Wild uniform made the difference, as the Wild improved to 2-0 for the season, shutting out the Dallas Stars 1-0 on Sunday. Dallas got 31 saves from rookie goalie Cristopher Nilstorp in his NHL debut, but could not muster any offense in the Stars' first road game of the season. Parise, the NHL's most talked-about free...
