2009-10 Inaugural Season

On April 28, 2009, the AHL granted a provisional Austin-area franchise to Tom Hicks owner of the NHL Stars, with the stipulation that Hicks purchase an existing AHL franchise within one year. That condition was met on May 4, 2010, when the AHL approved the Texas Stars' ownership group's purchase of the Iowa Chops franchise, which had been suspended for the 2009–10 season.

The team's inaugural season was a successful one. After finishing second in the West Division, the Stars swept Rockford in the first round of the playoffs, then claimed their first division championship by defeating Chicago four games to three. The Stars then won their first Robert W. Clarke Trophy by defeating Hamilton in another seven-game series to become the Western Conference champions. The Stars eventually fell to Hershey in game six of the 2010 Calder Cup Finals.


The Texas Stars held this identity of gold and green for six seasons. The Stars won the Calder Cup in 2014, defeating the St. John's IceCaps in the finals. Also in 2014, the Stars were purchased by Tom Gaglardi's ownership group, thus having the AHL affiliate under the control of the parent club.
