Ex-pee wee hockey player Travis Kelce watches Stars beat Oilers, 3-1, to even NHL playoff series as Chiefs star enjoys offseason between Taylor Swift tour dates and training in Kansas City

Travis Kelce’s whirlwind offseason continued Saturday in Dallas, where the Kansas City Chiefs tight end watched the hometown Stars beat the visiting Edmonton Oilers, 3-1, to even their Western Conference Finals series at a game apiece.

Mason Marchment scored the go-ahead goal for Dallas early in the third period and Esa Lindell followed with an empty netter with two minutes left in the game to seal the victory.

Hockey is not entirely unfamiliar to Kelce. Both he and his brother Jason are known to attend NBA games in their native Cleveland and the younger Kelce claims he declined a scholarship offer out of high school to play hoops for coach Bob Huggins at West Virginia. But before Kelce became a high school football, basketball, and baseball star, Taylor Swift’s boyfriend was actually a pee wee hockey player in Cleveland Heights.

‘I really love Hockey,’ read an old tweet that resurfaced following Kelce’s appearance at the Stars-Oilers game. ‘I haven’t stepped on the nice since I quit after playing 8 years… But that’s got to change! I miss it too much.’

Kelce wasn’t the only well-known athlete in the crowd on Saturday in Dallas. Former Mavericks star and NBA champion Dirk Nowitzki was also seen at American Airlines Arena, where a statue of the German basketball legend can now be found.
