The Dallas Stars on Friday announced the club’s preseason schedule for next season. The Stars will play six preseason games, including three at American Airlines Center and one at a neutral site game in Kansas City, Mo.

Dallas opens the preseason at American Airlines Center against the St. Louis Blues on Sept. 22. The two clubs will also play at the Sprint Center in Kansas City on Sept. 27. Other home games include Sept. 29 against the Florida Panthers and Sept. 30 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Stars will play road games against the Florida Panthers on Sept. 24 and at Tampa Bay on Sept. 26.

Winter Classic

A person familiar with the NHL’s plans said the Chicago Blackhawks will be the Washington Capitals’ opponent when the Winter Classic comes to D.C. on Jan. 1.

The person Friday spoke on condition of anonymity because the league has not announced the schedule for the upcoming season.

The NHL awarded the game to Washington in September. The league has been considering three venues in the Washington area: Nationals Park, RFK Stadium and FedEx Field. Capitals owner Ted Leonsis has said he would prefer to play the game in D.C., which would rule out FedEx Field in the Maryland suburbs.

The Blackhawks have played in the New Year’s Day game once before, having hosted it at Wrigley Field in 2009.

Richards out in NY

The New York Rangers are buying out the contract of veteran forward Brad Richards, creating much-needed salary-cap space and parting ways with New York’s de facto captain one week after being eliminated from the Stanley Cup Finals.

Both the Rangers and Richards’ agent, Pat Morris, confirmed the move Friday.

Richards, a Stars player from 2008-2011, had six years remaining on the nine-year, $60 million deal, and this move will remove his $6.67 million salary-cap charge. Richards will receive two-thirds of the remaining money to be paid out over 12 years — a total of $12.6 million.
