History

Since joining the United States Hockey League (USHL) in 1996, the Lincoln Stars have strived to provide fun, affordable entertainment unmatched in the Lincoln area and become a pillar of the community.  As a member of the nation's only Tier I junior hockey league, the Stars have won two Clark Cups (1997, 2003), three Anderson Cups (2000, 2001, 2003) and developed notable alumni including David Backes (Boston Bruins), Brandon Bollig (San Jose Sharks), Ryan Dzingel (Ottawa Senators), Jared Boll (Anaheim Ducks) and Paul LaDue (Los Angeles Kings). 

The Stars play in the Ice Box, a 4,300-seat arena located on the former Nebraska state fairgrounds and adjacent to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. On game days, the Ice Box is known for its iconic pre-game light show and unparalleled support from the best fans in the USHL. In 2014, The Pipeline Show on TSN 1260 recognized the Ice Box as having one of the top five arena atmospheres in the United States.
